Yup, I’m going to talk about the girl bits.

Life can be rough on the PC muscles. Pushing babies out and aging are at the top of the list for wear and tear (pun not really intended, but it is what it is). What that means practically is poorer sexual function (not as tight vaginally, it’s harder to have an orgasm, and the orgasm will likely be weaker) and leaking urine (they don’t make those incontinence commercials for no reason).

So let’s just be smart and work to avoid those problems. Make Kegel exercises a mini-goal in 2021. Start with just five squeezes a day and work up to more. Add them onto an existing exercise program or attach them to something you do daily, like when you sit at your desk to do email. (Nobody can see you do them, so you can do them anytime, anywhere.)

I’ve been doing Kegels for a couple of years now and I can vouch for the improvement that is possible. I’m 63 and I’ve carried two babies. I thought I was doing pretty well, but I was a bit concerned for the future. I also thought it would be good to walk the talk (I don’t ask others to do something I’m not willing to do myself). That said, I expected a little bit of improvement. I was surprised at how much of a difference it actually made in sexual function and I’m less worried about having to add incontinence supplies to my shopping list. Win, win!

Be wise. Do your Kegels … daily.

  1. Oh, I can’t resist…

    On hearing the word ‘kegel’,
    my mind goes on a fling
    that’s ethnic as a bagel,
    for it’s Eurotrash bowling
    with nine skittles at the end
    of a kegelbahn,
    and Germans with fierce intent
    to make the poor things gone,
    but their aim is not the best,
    and the skittles show no fear,
    ’cause keglers cannot pass the test
    of endless steins of beer;
    thus it’s rare for pins to fall,
    and good times are had by all.
