Can having too much sex loosen your pelvic floor muscles?

Your pelvic floor muscles are a wall of muscles that contracts and relaxes when you pee. Many believe that sex loosens the pelvic floor muscles. But is there any truth to it? Let us hear it from gynaecologist Dr. Arundhati Dhar.

There is no co-relation between having too much sex and pelvic floor muscles.  In fact, many women use sex as a way to tone their pelvic floor muscles. It is true that any trauma can cause damage to the pelvic floor muscles, the vagina is well-designed not to be traumatised by sex. In fact, it is the vice versa. The feeling of ‘tightness’ during sex is primarily determined by the pelvic floor muscles around the vagina. These muscles contract and relax depending on how aroused you are. When you’re feeling aroused, the muscles are relaxed, making your vaginal space less constricted, or ‘looser’. Here are 6 methods to get a tighter vagina. 

Kegels for sexual pleasure

Tightening your pelvic floor muscles during sex can lead to better orgasms. It will come as a great surprise to your partner when you squeeze your pelvic floor muscles against his penis. He will absolutely love it and you also stand to gain from this because when you finally orgasm, it will be stronger and more intense that before!

If you cannot, squeeze your pelvic floor muscles, here’s how you can do it. Try to clench your vaginal muscles while urinating. This should result in stopping the urine flow. Ideally, you should be able to keep the muscles clenched and tense for 10 seconds at a time.  You can do it while you’re travelling to work or even while you’re sitting at your desk in office! The best part is, no one can tell what you’re up to. Once you have got some practice, you can now do it during sexual intercourse. Also, try these exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
