How to get in on the fun
As someone who’s no stranger to the Captain’s Chair, spin bike, or squat rack, why might one person experience a coregasm, while I’m left high and dry? “It could be related to pelvic floor tone, circulation to the pelvic region, or the area on or around which you experience direct pressure,” explains Dr. Jess.
Johnson adds, “Orgasm is the repeated release of muscle tension. When muscles are contracted for a long time or stressed, they begin to tremor. These sensations can be expanded into an orgasmic feeling by focusing on them.”
In other words, you may or may not be physically inclined to the experience, and even if you are, you may still have to actively lean into it. Just as you might need to be mentally open to climaxing with a partner, you might also have to be aware, focused and open to the experience of a coregasm.
Note to self: it’s time to exercise a whole new kind of mindfulness at the gym.
