Exercise Orgasm, Sex researcher Debby Herbenick confirms that “coregasm” is a real phenomenon. (Courtesy Indiana University), Meredith, a 19-year-old psychology student from New York, remembers that “weird tingly feeling” as a child, doing workouts for gymnastics.
She called it the “candlestick,” the exercise where she would raise and lower her legs, tightening her lower abdominal muscles.
Now, a new study suggests some women don’t need a lover or sexual fantasy to experience sexual pleasure or even orgasm. Exercise can do the trick.
For years, fitness and women’s magazines have touted the apocryphal “coregasm,” but now researchers say that hundreds of women are getting the unintended benefits of those tummy crunches.
Knowing the orgasm feeling was a bonus for Meredith, once she became sexually active, she said. And now, she openly talks about her coregasm.
“Being a part of so many clubs in college and get-to-know-you games, it’s an ice breaker,” she said.
An estimated 45 percent of the women who responded to the researchers’ online request for women who had either exercise-induced orgasm (EIO) or exercise-induced sexual pleasure (EISP) said their first experience was during abdominal exercises, followed by weight lifting (26.5 percent), yoga (20 percent), bicycling (15.8 percent), running (13.2 percent) and walking/hiking (9.6 percent).
“For me as a scientist, that’s a stripped down version of orgasm, without sex or a partner,” said co-author Debby Herbenick, co-director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion and sexual health educator at the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University.
