Work Out & Get Off: What is a Coregasm?

Last updated:

Once upon a time, we revealed that the sexiest kind of exercise was of the kegel variety. You know, when you tighten your pelvic floor muscles (either manually or using Ben Wa Balls) in order to make them stronger, resulting in intense and more powerful orgasms? And while we still stand by this, coregasms are in strong competition! 

You see, the best part about coregasms is that it could happen whilst doing your average run-of-the-mill non-sexual exercise routine. Imagine: exercise and sexually-induced endorphins! What a rush! 

Ever heard of this cheeky occurrence? Let us indulge you in all of the juicy details…

What Are Coregasms?

A coregasm is when an orgasm is triggered by exercise (usually ab workouts), and the more technical name for them is called ‘exercise-induced orgasms’ (EIO). There are various different workout routines that can get you on your way to experiencing a happy ending of your own during your exercise regime.

But how is this even possible? Well, scientists are still unsure of the reason behind it. One theory however is that when one’s abdominal and pelvic floor muscles are tired and shaky, they produce a kind of inner stimulation that can lead to an orgasm. One thing scientists do know for sure, however, is that when one experiences a coregasm, it is completely asexual in nature. In other words, coregasms can occur without the presence of sexual thoughts or fantasies. 

While not scientifically-proven as yet, coregasms seem to be more prevalent in women.

What Does a Coregasm Feel Like?

As we know, no two orgasms are the same. So, a coregasm may feel different for everyone. 

It’s been said, however, that when a woman experiences this kind of climax, it’s similar to that of a deep vaginal orgasm–just not as intense. This feeling is more likely to create some sexual feelings inside the lower abdomen, inner thighs, or pelvis, however, as opposed to a throbbing clitoris or vagina.

And when it comes to men, some admit that a coregasm feels similar to a prostate orgasm. Well, this is great news, as prostate orgasms are often the most intense and longer-lasting kind of climax for men.

How Can Exercise Cause You to Orgasm?

As we mentioned, there’s not much research to work with when it comes to coregasms. But in one study, 530 women were able to participate in an anonymous Internet-based survey. 

It found that 124 of the participants had experienced an orgasm (or orgasms) during exercise, while 246 women experienced sexual pleasure. This study also showed that 40 percent of the participants experienced this sexual euphoria more than 10 times throughout the duration of the experiment.

The results showed that the most common exercises that induced orgasm were either abdominal in nature, climbing, or lifting weights, and the most common exercises that induced exercise-induced sexual pleasure (EISP) were biking/spinning. 

If only there were specific instructions on ways that you yourself could work on enjoying a titillating coregasm! Oh wait, there are… 

Exercises that May Induce a Coregasm

As we mentioned, coregasms are usually the result of the muscles, especially the abs, being tired and/or shaky. For that reason, it’s been shown that the majority of those who experience a coregasm started their workout by doing 20 to 30 minutes of cardio, such as using the treadmill. 

After this, you can start working on an intense ab workout without taking a break. 

Some ab exercises can include:

  • Crunches: lay on your back, tighten your abdominal muscles, then lift your head and shoulders upward.
  • Hanging leg lifts: such as using a pull bar then raising your legs until they’re parallel to the floor, or simply bringing your legs to your chest, then slowly lower them. Repeat. 
  • Single leg planks: lay on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Cross your arms over your chest and raise the lower half of your right leg until it’s in line with your left thigh. Press your left foot into the floor and contract your glutes as you lift your torso so it’s in line with your thighs. Hold, rest, alternative legs, repeat.
  • Arm pullover straight leg crunches: use dumbbells and lay on your back with your arms behind you. Allow your legs to sit at a 45-degree angle, then bring your arms up over your chest and lift your shoulders off the floor while raising your legs so that they’re perpendicular to the floor. Bring your legs down but without allowing them to touch the floor, then repeat.

And now that you’re more in-the-know about coregasms, which sexy exercise are you going to try first?
