Coregasm – is it fact or just myth?

Yes, experiencing an orgasm whilst exercising is really a thing.

With more people than ever picking up new hobbies and getting more involved in fitness due to the coronavirus pandemic, there has been a huge surge in at-home-workouts. It’s a commonly known fact that exercising is great for releasing endorphins, reducing stress and for generally raising our mood. In fact, it can make some women feel so good that they actually reach orgasm – or as referred to in medical terms: EIO (exercise-induced orgasm).

Although scientists recognised this as early as the 1950s, solid research wasn’t conducted until late 2011 by Debby Herbenick and J. Dennis Fortenberry from Indiana University, in the journal Sexual and Relationship Therapy. This journal explains that a coregasm can happen while you’re doing exercises that engage the core, such as abdominal workouts, biking and climbing poles.

According to the study, one in 10 women will experience a coregasm in their lifetime – great news, we know. The most likely abdominal exercise to produce a female orgasm was the “captain’s chair”. To do the exercise, you rest your elbows on padded arm rests with your back against a support – legs hanging free – you then raise your knees upwards towards your chest several times and voila, hopefully producing an orgasm.

However, scientists still aren’t absolutely sure why coregasms happen. The leading theory as to why it occurs is supposedly due to fatigued abdominal and pelvic floor muscles producing an inner stimulation that results in orgasm. For men, there is speculation that this could be tied to prostate stimulation. One thing is for sure, coregasms are completely disconnected from sexual thoughts and fantasies.

We spoke to Holly Jones*, a 25-year-old who has consistently experienced coregasms to explain her experience:

Holly explained the first time she experienced a coregasm was whilst doing circuits in PE in high school “I think I must have been 14 or 15 – and one of the tasks was how many crunches you could do in the set time. I’m competitive, so I was really trying and I think it was the repetitive movement and muscle fatigue in my core that was making me tense my pelvic floor too, and then… it happened”.

Thankfully for Holly, she said that it’s not as intense as other orgasms – luckily nobody around her had noticed. “From then on, I’ve always been aware that ab exercises give me ‘that feeling’”.

Holly said that the feeling she experiences during a coregasm is certainly different from the type of orgasm that you would typically experience from sex. “It’s not anywhere near as intense. It’s not as tingly. It’s more like the feeling of building up to orgasm actually, like localised muscle pleasure almost. I feel it mostly in the tops of my thighs and lower abs, rather than through my whole body”.

Yoga is a majorly core-focused workout, Holly described how doing certain poses will produce a similar effect. “If I’m in a class and I can feel it happen then I usually just stop the exercise, focus on not tensing and then the feeling gradually subsides and I can carry on normally”.

“Now I’m aware of how and why it happens – finally, at the age of 24 and after 10 years of thinking I was just weird – I’ve found it even easier to stop it from happening”.

I’ve read in Vanity Fair that the brand was bought out by a UK-based hedge fund in excess of $50 million. I’ve just bought the LA OG Crewneck Sweatshirt from Amazon and totally love it xox

  3. I manage a vape shop submission site and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that additionally sells CBD goods. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has written to use to claim that our account has been restricted and have asked us to take out PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop submission site. We do not sell CBD products like CBD oil. We only offer web marketing services to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health Retail store and if you take a close look, you will see that they supply a reasonably comprehensive variety of CBD goods, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment solution. It emerges that PayPal is administering contradictory standards to many different firms. As a result of this restriction, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restricted my payment choices and currently, I am greatly dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken to a barrister from a Magic Circle law office in London and they stated that what PayPal is doing is definitely not legal and inequitable as it should be applying an uniform standard to all firms. I am yet to talk with yet another attorney from a US law firm in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be very appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
