Have you ever felt tingling down below while you’re working out? We’re looking at a coregasm–what it is and how to have one!


Here’s one reason you should never skip your workout. Women abound online raving about miraculous workout sessions that result in having an orgasm. So, what is this magical sensation? Ladies and gentlemen, this is what we call a coregasm. The idea of orgasming in a gym full of people isn’t exactly as ideal as saddling up with a vibrator and a comfy pillow, yet more and more women want to know how to achieve this public event.

Can women really have a coregasm from working out at the gym? Alfred Kinsey’s article “Sexual Behavior in the Human Female” revealed that 5% of the women he’d spoken with referred to previously experiencing an orgasm during exercise. Squats have never felt so good, am I right?

Can you have a coregasm from working out? We’re letting you in on the biggest coregasm tips and tricks to make you climax at the same time you get abs.

What is a coregasm?

A coregasm refers to an exercise-induced orgasm. Sometimes the universe really does reward you for your hard work! One online survey done by researchers at Indiana University found out of 530 women polled, 246 had experienced exercise-induced sexual pleasure (EISP), and 124 even claim to have exercised induced orgasms (EIO) from it!

How it works

As the name implies, a coregasm happens during core exercises. In no way do you have to be thinking steamy thoughts to climax. In fact, most who report having coregasms say they weren’t having any sexy intentions. Instead, this orgasm occurs after several reps of abdominal exercises. Another common factor in women who can achieve coregasms? They do Kegels.

How to strengthen your orgasm

Women who have a strong pelvic floor are more likely to be able to achieve coregasm through exercise. Want to know the benefits of Kegels on your sex life? Strengthening your pelvic floor leads to better, stronger orgasms, helps with bladder control, and tightens your vagina. This exercise also helps give men better orgasms, fight premature ejaculation, and improve erections. [Read: Kegel exercises: Why both men and women should do it]

To do a Kegel, simply squeeze and hold the same muscles you would use to stop urinating. Release the muscles and repeat in a series of reps. The more you do Kegels the stronger your pelvic floor will be.

Benefits of exercise on your sex life

As if having an orgasm via working out wasn’t enough of a treat, here are some other ways regular exercise benefits your sex life.

#1 Increases odds of orgasm. Studies show that women who exercise regularly reach orgasm faster than those who don’t.

#2 Boosts confidence. When you treat your body good it makes you feel good. This leads to confidence. And confidence leads to doing crazy things in the bedroom and feeling like an absolute goddess about it. [Read: 8 steps to get back your body confidence in the bedroom]

#3 Improved sexual performance. Daily exercise allows your body to maintain regular, healthy blood flow and circulation. This leads to increased stamina in the bedroom and a better sexual performance.

#4 Lowers risk of Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Because exercise opens the arteries and creates better blood flow, men who exercise regularly lowers their risk of having ED. In fact, a Harvard study found that out of 31,000 physically active men over 50 years old were less likely to suffer from ED then inactive men of the same age.

What does a coregasm feel like?

Coregasms don’t feel like traditional orgasms for either gender. Men compare having an EIO as being similar to having a prostate orgasm, or waves of pressurized pleasure.

Women report that instead of the slow build and exploding climax of a clitoral orgasm, a coregasm is said to feel more like a vaginal orgasm. This orgasm is a smooth contraction that happens throughout most of the body and can last for a long time, or so say coregasm regulars.

How to have a coregasm

Is there a surefire way to have an orgasm while you’re doing reps? Not exactly. Women report orgasming via going to the gym by lifting weights, biking, and doing yoga. So really, your options are endless.

This is great news for those who like a varied workout, oh yeah, and coming at the same time. Here are some tips and tricks that help you along the road to having a coregasm.

#1 Do cardio first. The usual workout recommendation is to do strength training first, followed by cardio—but not for a coregasm! If you’re looking to have a sexy workout you’re going to need to switch up your routine.

Women reported a higher likelihood of having an EIO by starting with at least 20 minutes of cardio followed by abdominal exercises. [Read: 12 benefits of exercise on your mind, body, and libido]

#2 Train dirty. The elliptical is a great way to get in your full body cardio, but it’s probably not going to make you cum! Women are more likely to have an EIO when engaging in HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) workouts instead of leisurely walking.

That means you stick to workouts that engage your core such as chair positions and a mad set of crunches. Better for your workout and better for your vagina! That is what we call a win/win.

#3 Don’t force it. If your main goal of exercising is to have an orgasm, we suggest dropping the dumbbells and trying a vibrator instead. Coregasms can’t be forced. Just know if you’re fully engaging your core you’re on the right track.

Once you do experience an EIO, you’ll be able to better learn what exercise works for your body. [Read: 10 tips for women who want a mind-blowing orgasm]

#4 Find an exercise that works. For women: Coregasms are more likely to occur during ab exercises and yoga. Coregasms occur when your core begins to grow fatigued. This means it’s going to take quite a number of reps to get you there, so don’t expect a screaming O after three crunches. Practice doing L-sits, single-leg planks, crunches, and arm pulls over straight-leg crunches to see if they start to float your boat. [Read: Having a handsfree orgasm – How to get there in no time]

For men: Interestingly enough, men who experience EIO don’t get erect! Instead, they’re working out so hard and creating so much blood flow throughout the body they’re skipping their boners *or having very short ones* and heading straight for ejaculation. Men report coregasms during climbing, chin-ups, weight lifting, and sit-ups.
