An ordinary woman can get sexual pleasure without resorting to sexual acts - just run, ride a bike, practice yoga or just shake a press.

Is it possible to get sexual satisfaction from simple physical exercises? As for the men on this occasion, there is no data, but here the women were more lucky. In recent years, sexologists are actively discussing the phenomenon of obtaining orgasm and just sexual pleasure from exercises on the abdominal muscles. Researchers from the University of Indiana (USA) conducted on this topic a fairly extensive survey, which led them to the following conclusions.

The survey involved 124 women who experienced orgasms during one or another physical exercise, and 246 women who received the same moderate sexual pleasure. The age of the respondents is from 18 to 69, most of them were married or "in a relationship", 69% are heterosexual. It turned out that about 40% of them experienced similar feelings more than ten times, that is, it was not an exceptional coincidence. Most could control emotions at that moment, but 20% completely lost their heads, despite the fact that they were in a public place.

Most of those that experienced orgasm, did not indulge at this time no erotic fantasies. Half of all women experienced a sense of sexual pleasure from the exercises relating to the abdominal muscles, which, as a rule, was preceded by three-month exercises. 26.5% experienced this during weight-and-field sports, 20% from yoga, 15.8% from regular cycling, 13.2% from running, 9.6% from walking to large distance.

Why such exercises are associated with such feelings, so far remains a mystery. But at least this is one of the first studies in which an attempt has been made to order scientific data on this phenomenon. The results of their work the researchers are going to publish in the journal Sexual and Relationship Therapy. It is noted that the phenomenon is not so rare: it took only five weeks to interview 370 women.

Taking into account the input data, we can conclude that the case here, apparently, is not in dissatisfaction or nymphomania, since almost all of them lived in tandem with someone and did not suffer from obsessive erotic fantasies. Another question is whether it will appeal to men, whose main vital function is coped with iron weight?
