Go to Kegel Camp and Tone Your PC Muscles

Plenty of folks have heard about Kegel exercises, but let’s face it- it can be hard to remember to do them. Fortunately, there’s an app for that, too.

Emily Morse, the host of the  Sex With Emily podcast, has released Kegel Camp. It’s a super easy-to-use iphone app that keeps you on track. There’s a text tutorial that explains how to find the PC muscle and the benefits of keeping it toned, and then you can jump right in. There are twenty levels to work through and you’ll automatically level up after 5 sessions, though of course, you can select any level. And even level 20 only takes a few minutes to do.

Whichever level you’re on, there are three sets to work through. You can listen along as Emily cues you, you can have a visual indicator (as shown below), and you can even have it vibrate to tell you when to tighten and relax. And since Kegels, like any other exercise, give you the most benefit when you do them regularly, you can set a daily reminder. It’s a very intuitive app and makes it easy to follow through on that resolution to do your exercises.

Doing your Kegels can bring a lot of benefit to your sex life. A lot of people report that they experience stronger and longer orgasms, which makes sense since the muscles can go longer before getting tired. And many folks say that their erections are firmer or their vaginal contractions are stronger. I’ve heard some people say that they didn’t notice a change until they stopped doing it, at which point they backslid and saw the difference.

So if you’re like most of us and you forget to do your Kegels, check the app out. It’ll help you keep things in tip-top shape!
