Doing some physical activity has many benefits such as preventing diseases, increasing life expectancy, strengthening our bones and muscles, improving cardiovascular function, maintaining a healthy weight, controlling stress and boosting our intellectual performance. But training regularly can ‘give us’ a pleasant experience known scientifically as orgasm exercise induced (EIO) and, popularly, as coregasm.
The term was coined after a study published by researchers Debby Herbenick and J. Dennis Fortenberry, Indiana University professors who surveyed 530 women, 370 of whom were between the ages of 18 and 63, asking if they had experienced any type of placer sexual while exercising.
The answer was surprising: yes, it had happened to practically all of them. So they came to the conclusion that there was women reaching climax during the practice of exercise or came to experience some sexual pleasure. “In the middle of the last 20th century, Alfred Charles Kinsey, a sexology researcher, carried out a very powerful study in which he stated that 5% of the women interviewed had experienced an orgasm by exercising, especially abdominal exercises,” said the sexologist. Ana Sierra.
The specialist from Madrid said that it is “an orgasm that triggers spontaneously during exercises that actively involve the ‘core’ area, that is, that space that goes from the ribs to the pelvic floor”, explains Ana Sierra, a sexologist from Madrid.
How to get a coregasm
To achieve a coregasm, you have to perform various exercises in the gym. 51% of the women surveyed said that they succeeded Doing cruncheswhile 27% said they were lifting weights, 20% practicing yoga, 16% cycling, 13% running and 10% just walking.
“The most common exercises associated with exercise-induced orgasm are abdominal exercises, climbing a pole or rope, bicycling or spinning, and weight lifting,” said Debby Herbenick, co-director of the Center for the Promotion of Sexual Health at Indiana University.
However, those who are considered star exercises to achieve coregasm are the sit-ups that are performed in the so-called “captain’s chair”: that machine that makes our abs burn can also be one of our best friends in terms of orgasms.

Another recommended exercise is suspended sit-ups on the bar (hold on to a bar with the hands with a distance a little more open than the width of the shoulders and leaving the feet in suspension. From there, we raise the knees to the chest putting the tension in the abdominals and return to the starting position slowly and without rocking the body).
