An interesting article from the Times Online claims that exercising helps you orgasm:?Exercise enhances your body image, sense of wellbeing and energy level, all of which nourish sexual function,? she says. As well as seeming to improve self-esteem ? those who exercise tend to rate themselves as more sexually attractive ? exercise seems to help women achieve orgasm more easily and keep their sex lives going longer.A study at the Center for Marital and Sexual Studies in Florida found that regular exercisers reached orgasm more easily and more often, and a survey of keen swimmers by Harvard University discovered that the sex life of a swimmer in her forties was like that of a 20-year-old.I think this is interesting on both levels, the mental and physical. If exercise produces greater self-esteem, then I could totally see that boosting one's sexual response. I've been working out at my local Crossfit affiliate, where the emphasis is on heavy weight lifting, and during our squatting exercises, where I have up to 170 pounds on my back (I know!), I'm encouraged to kindof scream and grunt as I come up with the weight. The idea is that by letting out that air and noise, it will give me a boost of energy needed to complete the exercise (at least, that's how I understand it), and in some ways it is like making noise as you orgasm in that it spurs you on.The article also quotes Marrena Lindberg, author of The Orgasmic Diet, one that I tried (for the most part) that basically involves eating fresh fruits, veggies, meats and grains and cutting out soy, as well as taking a lot of fish oil and eating dark chocolate every day. I found that it worked in terms of getting me more turned on that I normally would be and being hyper-aware of sex and my responses, but it alone didn't necessarily get me 100% of the way to orgasm.I think this article has a lot of good and common-sense suggestions, like cutting out stress, eating right, exercising, etc., but I also think you have to be in the right mindset if you are going to enjoy sex, whether it's with yourself and/or a partner. There have been plenty of times when I just haven't been in the mood, when my mind is way too preoccupied to allow myself to get as carried away by sex as I need to be to truly savor it.For instance, when I had that spanking encounter I wrote about the other day, I had earlier, um, stepped on my laptop. Yes, you read that right: I had my iBook on the floor of my kitchen, got up to get something, came back and heard a crack! So a little PSA: don't do that. As you can imagine, sex was not really primarily on my mind as I tried to figure out how to deal with the laptop situation, and I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. I got over it, but part of me thinks I should've taken care of the laptop situation first, then gone about my spanking endeavors.Sex can take us away from our everyday cares and worries, but I think we have to want it to first. Like, I love my Hitachi Magic Wand (though am sortof on the search for an update as its been my mainstay for years; more on that later), but sometimes I just need to be sad or stressed or whatever else it is before I'm horny, if that makes sense. I think it's also easier for those who are in a relationship to seek out the comfort of sex with your partner(s), versus if you're single and want sex and comfort from someone you may not know all that well.What do you think? Does exercising help your sex life? Do you use sex/masturbation to relieve stress? I wish I could do the latter more often; maybe I'm just too neurotic. What often winds up happening is that I'm half-masturbating, half have my head off in the clouds and the disconnect makes it hard for me to get much pleasure out of it, like I have to remind myself, oh yeah, there's a big, powerful vibrator buzzing against your clit. Perhaps this post is a bit too revealing about my mishegoss, but I really am curious to hear what you have to say. What I think would be really cool is some sort of exercise machine, like a bike or rowing machine, that had a built-in vibrator mechanism so you could come and burn calories. If there can be a spanking machine, why not this? A girl can dream, right?louds and the disconnect makes it hard for me to get much pleasure out of it, like I have to remind myself, oh yeah, there's a big, powerful vibrator buzzing against your clit.
