Push for the burn!

If you've ever been cranking a few sit-ups on your yoga mat and then felt a fuzzy, sexy tingle in your swimsuit area, you're not alone. 

It's a little thing called "coregasm" and it apparently happens a lot more than you think. In fact, it's probably happening in your favorite gym right now. Thanks to the research from sex professor Debby Herbenick, Ph.D., 10 percent of women and men have climaxed from exercising. Scientifically, they're called Exercise Induced Orgasms (EIOs). And science has no clue why it actually happens. 

Want to be part of that exclusive club? It's easy. 

"The most common exercises associated with exercise-induced orgasm were abdominal exercises, climbing poles or ropes, biking/spinning and weight lifting," Herbenick said. "These data are interesting because they suggest that orgasm is not necessarily a sexual event, and they may also teach us more about the bodily processes underlying women's experiences of orgasm."

According to studies Herbenick and her buddies have performed, the best way to achieve your crotch fireworks is by utilizing your gym's version of the sex swing: the captain's chair. 

That model's glassy stare isn't because she's bored — she's cumming. 

After the study was published, women wrote in to add their experiences, and we're now very distrustful of the contented smiles we see in the yoga room. 

One female wrote, “Seems on my third set of 15 reps, if I crank out a few more reps and go to 20, well, yeah, I can have an orgasm! and no one notices, trust me.” So it seems this dirty little secret about women isn’t a secret anymore. Another woman wrote, “I have to be lying down and usually put a small towel or pillow under my lower back. I get the best ‘coregasm’ when I lower my feet close to the floor.”

Kali, from Oklahoma, says that she first discovered the coregasm when doing a “hanging hold” like in the top position of a chin-up. Later, she found that if she “held a leg and shoulder lift” during sex, “it only intensified the pulsing.” In the gym, she says that the coregasm usually starts after five repetitions of the hanging leg raise. And, she adds, “I’m just glad to know I’m not the only one with this side effect.”

Men, tragically, might have a hard time with this. Most of the men polled didn't need an erection to pull off this trick (which might be a good thing) but still made a mess when their love bomb went off (which isn't a good thing, from a sanitation perspective). Sorry bros. 

If you still need more info, there's even a book called The Coregasm Workout on Amazon. You're welcome.
