Recently, I was sent this video on YouTube from a friend. He didn’t say anything but the title of the video sort of gave it away: Yoga for Sex: Exercises for Harder, Stronger Erections (BE STRONG LIKE BULL!) #yogaformen
As a yoga teacher, I couldn’t help but raise an eyebrow in scepticism. Apart from the obvious click-baity title, I guess what most people, including my friend, wanted to know was: Is there any truth to this? Can yoga, actually, give you harder, stronger erections?
It’s a question that comes up more often than you would think. I once had a private client ask me to teach a class that would make his penis bigger. Another client wanted to know about breathing exercises that could help to sustain his erections. Ever so often, I get asked about yoga positions to have sex in… well, that’s another column for another time.
The short answer to the big question is — it depends.
As a mindfulness practice, yoga can help you to relax, allowing you to feel less anxious and therefore perform more admirably in the bedroom. Pelvic exercises, such as the ones shown in the YouTube video, can strengthen your perineum muscles, which support erectile rigity. Better control over these muscles in your pelvis may also aid in erectile dysfunction, such as delaying premature ejaculations.
Aside from having stronger and harder erections, another way to think about this is that yoga poses designed to strengthen and improve endurance can make you a better lover. While it may not directly impact your erections, your general fitness makes a considerable difference in the quality of the sex you’re having – though, one could argue other fitness modalities offer the same rewards.
Then, of course, there is the flexibility. Yoga is one of the most effective ways to gain flexibility, which may give you access to more, shall we say, options when you’re trying to be creative.
All that said, however, the relationship between yoga and better sex isn’t quite that direct. If the reasons for your erectile dismay is medical in nature, a blue pill is going to be a lot more helpful.
Ultimately, the path of yoga leads to greater awareness of not just the body, but the mind – and there is where a regular yoga practice may prove to be your best bet to becoming a Don Juan in the sheets.
After all, don’t they say, the sexiest organ is not the penis, but the brain?
Every man’s best friend is their penis. Your penis is always there when you need them. Because of how sensitive penises are, the idea of piercing them seems scary, unorthodox, and even downright cruel. Why would someone entertain the idea of piercing through their penis with a piece of metal? BENEFITS OF PENIS PIERCING: Pleasure. […]
There are two types of guys in the world: The Relationship Guy and The Hook-up Guy. Both have their pros and cons, and maybe you’re ready to commit long term, but are you sure the guy you’re seeing is ready too? Sometimes guys aren’t very direct about what they want. Other times, they’re fine just […]
