Strengthening the Muscle
Kegel exercises are useful for women who are strengthening the vaginal walls after a vaginal birth or during the later stages of pregnancy. Kegel exercises are also known to tighten the vagina and improve orgasms, and they have a known sexual connotation because of this.
Kegels for Men
Though Kegels are traditionally associated as a women's exercise, men also have the PC muscle. Exercising it aids men with the control of semen and urine, and it has aided in reducing prostate pain. Clench and release the PC muscle for 10 seconds. Rest, and repeat two more times.
Rubber balls come anywhere from 1 to 4 inches diameter. Insert one at a time, then squeeze as if trying not to urinate. Try to tug the ball out to increase resistance.
The Barbell is inserted into the vagina while lying down. Use the PC muscle to lift the barbell slightly. Hold for 5 minutes.
The spring looks like a cross between kitchen tongs and a phallic-shaped sex toy. Instead of lifting, like one would with the barbell, the spring is used by clamping it closed, and strengthening through resistance, as the springs are trying to push apart. Hold for 5 minutes.
