Self-love: An Intimate Education

Self-love: An Intimate Education

Let’s stop beating about the bush

Self-love is saying no to dinner plans when you have too much going on and need a night to yourself. It’s standing up for yourself. It’s asking for help when you need it. It’s taking the time to prioritise your pleasure (and no, we’re not just talking about bubble baths and treat yo’ self moments, although we’re a fan of those too). We’re talking about sexual pleasure.

Despite the obvious connection, self-pleasure often gets left out of the self-love conversation. It’s 2018 and women are taking control of their pleasure, and asking for what they want in bed… or elsewhere. But how do you know what you want?

Embrace your inner strength and learn your body

Women want to feel sexy from the inside out. Forget the satin lingerie, confidence and feeling comfortable in your body is the place to start. When we are taught about sex, we are taught about the practicalities rather than the pleasures, so often a woman's journey to orgasm is one of self-discovery, of trial and error.

Experimentation can be fun and fulfilling but to feel confident in your body, you have to know yourself. Elvie Trainer, the award-winning Kegel trainer, is empowering women around the world to learn about their bodies and get connected with their most intimate muscle group (aka the pelvic floor) by making pelvic floor exercises fun and easy.

The science of self-love

When it comes to sex, pelvic floor exercises or Kegels build muscle strength, increase sensation and boost blood flow to the vagina, which in turn helps you control those muscles and experience stronger orgasms!

We’re not making this stuff up. Studies have shown that women with a stronger pelvic floor have more intense and longer lasting orgasms. This is because it’s the pelvic floor muscles that contract during orgasm. Simply put, strengthen your pelvic floor and you can strengthen your orgasms. And let’s not forget that research has also found that pelvic floor exercise training led to greater sexual desire, arousal, lubrication and overall sexual satisfaction!

‘Me time’ just got a whole lot more exciting

If the possibility of mind-blowing orgasms isn’t enough to convince you that sexual pleasure should be at the top of your self-love list, there has never been a better excuse to take five minutes, three times a week for yourself. That’s all you need to see results in as little as four weeks with Elvie Trainer. And let’s not forget all the other benefits of Kegels, including a strong core, bladder control and a toned pelvic floor for life too.

Spice up your self-care routine and get to know your body more intimately for newfound sexual confidence. Workout now, orgasm later.
