You know that the penis itself contains no muscles, but exercise still might be able to help your sex life. We’re not sure exercise helps, but some sex therapists suggest that Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic muscles may help you prolong intercourse. (Kegel exercises have for years been recommended to women who want to increase their sexual enjoyment.)

In order to exercise the pelvic muscles you first have to find them. There are two ways to do this, according to sex therapist-Bernie Zilbergeld, Ph.D., the author of Mate Sexuality. You can pretend you are holding in a bowel movement; the muscles you squeeze are the pelvic ones. Or, when you are urinating, stop and start your flow several times; when you stop the flow, you’re squeezing the muscles you want.

Once you know where the muscles are, you can try squeezing and relaxing the muscles 10 to 15 times, twice a day. Dr. Zilbergeld suggests you gradually increase your workout to 60 or 70, twice a day. And once you’ve mastered that, you can try holding the squeeze for a bit longer and then relaxing. However, it’s important not to overdo it and to increase gradually, because, as with any exercise, too much too soon can make you sore.

Some therapists say that strengthening these muscles can help you last longer and control your ejaculations more easily. If you tighten these muscles just before you ejaculate, you’re doing a kind of internal squeeze technique.
