Okay, I admit it, this is a new one on me as the last thing I would think would be occurring while a woman is exercising is that she could actually be having an orgasm; but it seems it has taken a scientific study to confirm something that women have known for some time (and you thought she was smiling at you).
According to Indiana University health researchers Debby Herbenick and Dennis Fortenberry the whole “exercise induced orgasms (EIO)” is something very real, or at least that is what the results of their study of hundreds of women has concluded.
Here’s the thing though – most of the women weren’t even thinking about anything sexual when they had their orgasms. It seems that just the exercising in of itself is enough of a trigger.
In order to really understand what was causing this Herbenick and Fortenberry looked into what types of exercise might be causing these EIOs
Diverse types of physical exercise were associated with EIO and EISP [exercise-induced sexual pleasure]. Of the EIO group, 51.4 percent reported experiencing an orgasm in connection with abdominal exercises within the previous 90 days. Others reported experiencing orgasm in connection to such exercises as weight lifting (26.5 percent), yoga (20 percent), bicycling (15.8), running (13.2 percent) and walking/hiking (9.6 percent) . . . ab exercises were particularly associated with the “captain’s chair,” which consists of a rack with padded arm rests and back support that allows the legs to hang free. The goal is to repeatedly lift the knees toward the chest or toward a 90-degree angle with the body.
Being serious here for a moment I sure am glad that this type of thing doesn’t happen to men while their exercising – seriously glad.
