The “coregasm” was first recognised in 1953 and it can happen especially during running or weightlifting
Until the day comes where you’re paid vast sums of money to attend the odd gym class, many of us will have a strained relationship with exercise.
Yes, we know it’s good for us. Yes, we try our best to stay healthy – but it’s not always easy to enjoy.
Or is it?
Some women are apparently deriving a LOT of enjoyment out of exercising, far beyond feeling that runner’s high everyone’s always banging on about.
Some women are having orgasmic releases while in the gym.
Also called a coregasm, according to ScaryMommy , while doing an intense workout, your body can reach an orgasm because of the release of endorphins.
While this is more prevalent during ab workouts, it can also occur during running or weight-lifiting.
What’s more, is a “coregasm” can even potentially last for hours, and the contractions can be felt in the abdomen and inner thighs.
Coregasms were first addressed in 1953 by sexologist Alfred Kinsey, Refinery29 explains.
In Sexual Behavior in the Human Female he wrote that 5 per cent of women he spoke with mentioned experiencing orgasms during exercise.
Of course, as fun as a coregasm may sound, their habit of striking while you’re in a public place probably isn’t ideal.
Still, is this enough to entice you to go to the gym?
