Pelvic Floor Potential Defined
I wonder if I could get my ass sued if the authors from whom I reprint passages found their way to my site. Oh well, copyright infringement be damned, I’m doing it anyways! After all, it’s not like I’m making a profit here and if anything it actually promotes their work and might even encourage someone to buy themselves their own copy, righ? At least, that’s how I’m justifying it to myself.
With that in mind here’s another definition from the pages of The Encyclopedia of Erotic Wisdom: A Reference Guide to the Symbolism, Techniques, Rituals, Sacred Texts, Psychology, Anatomy, and History of Sexual.
Pelvic Floor Potential
“If the pelvic floor muscles are slack and you do not know how o use them, you are missing out on one whole aspect of sexual experience.”
– Sheila Kitzinger, Woman’s Experience of Sex
The system of pelvic floor muscles in the genital area of women consists of two groups, each of which can be activated, or controlled, independently. The first group consists of the ischiocavernous and bulbocabervous muscles, as well as those responsible for control of the urethra, the musculus sphincter urethra. In the second group we find the pubococcygeus or PC-muscle, the pubovaginalis and he puborectalis. Exercising and training these muscles not only can enhance erotic sensations and possibilities for both partners in general, but can be used specifically for the following goals.
- Aiding the ejaculation of female love juices and aiding the woman’s own control over the stimulation of her yoni and her orgasmic timing (Ladas, Perry, and Whipple, in the “G-Spot”, have observed that “female ejaculation occurs mostly in women with strong pubococcygeus muscles”
- Control over the prolongation of penile erection and/or the excitation of male ejaculation
- The absorption of orgasmic fluid(s)
Especially famous for their accomplishments in this area are the kabbazah and the women of Ethiopia and southern India, and today the technique is recommended by authors are diverse as Alan Ramsdale, Mantak Chia, Nik Douglas, and Sheila Kitzinger. Ramsdale, Chia, and Kitzinger give a number of detailed exercises – for example the Taoist deer exercise, the vaginal kiss, or vaginal weightlifting – designed to gain control over these muscles. Incidentally, such training will also aid the woman in the case of childbirth.
Men have similar muscles of course, which are mainly used as an aid in the retention of semen.
Hear that guys, time to start exercising your own set of pelvic muscles. I should also mention that since I started to exercise my PC-muscles on a regular basis, I’ve actually seen a difference in a pretty short period of time. Now, when I pee I can completely interrupt the flow of urine (even in mid-pee) and hold it for quite a long time. I used to only be able to interrupt the flow of urine for like half a second and even then never completely blocking it. As for a sexual difference, that remains to be seen. I need a partner to experiment with. Sob.
