Have you ever heard of a coregasm? That’s an orgasm that occurs from engaging your core muscles when you exercise. I certainly hadn’t until I read a new Indiana University study published this week that confirms what Cosmopolitan magazine has been telling its readers for years: it’s actually possible, at least in women.
The study, which surveyed 530 women who volunteered to answer questions about their sexual feelings when exercising, found that 370 of the survey respondents reported experiencing either an orgasm or sexual pleasure when they exercised. About one-third of that group said they occasionally had all-out orgasms most often while doing abdominal exercises, which strengthen core muscles, as well as climbing ropes, weight lifting or running.
