That’s how to reach the finish-line! Running can boost women’s orgasms and make them more intense, study says

  • Running may lead to better and more intense orgasms for women, a study found 
  • Experts say more pleasurable climaxes likely from stronger pelvic muscles
  • Those who ran longer distances were 28% more likely to reach better orgasm 

Running – especially at longer distances – can help women enjoy better and more intense orgasms, a study has found. 

Researchers said strengthened pelvic muscles as a result of the exercise help improve bloodflow to key areas and may prove for a more pleasurable climax, as well as potentially higher self-esteem and better body image.

Of 180 volunteers whose sex lives were analysed after they jogged at least once a week, those who ran longer distances were 28 per cent more likely to reach a better climax and it was found to be a third more intense, according to the International Urogynecology Journal.

The study looked at groups – one ran more than 12 miles every seven days and another ran less than 12 miles – and compared them, asking about the runners’ love lives.  

Researcher Shanny Sade, from Ben-Gurion University in Israel, told The Sun: ‘Our study found women who ran the most experienced more intensive orgasms.

‘It may be explained by better clitoral circulation, better working of pelvic floor muscles, better self-esteem and body image, or a combination of these.’

Sex therapist Phillip Hodson also told the outlet: ‘Running, it appears, is the perfect sex aid – especially for women.’

It comes as earlier this month researchers in New Jersey found that the phenomenon of the ‘orgasm gap’ – in which men climax more than women in heterosexual relationships – affects a woman’s desire to even have an orgasm in the bedroom.

The experts surveyed men and women in straight relationships about sexual satisfaction, how often they orgasm and how often they’d like to orgasm.

They not only found that the orgasm gap exists, but that women who climax less during sex have less desire for an orgasm, and less expectation of having one too.

When men and women have more frequent orgasms in their relationship, they want and expect more orgasms.

But the opposite happens when a person climaxes less often – they start to want and expect orgasms less.

But because of the orgasm gap, women are more affected by this decreased desire and expectation than men.

The study was conducted by three researchers at Rutgers University’s Department of Psychology in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

‘Our expectations are shaped by our experiences, so when women orgasm less, they will desire and expect to orgasm less,’ said study author Grace Wetzel, a social psychology doctoral student and ‘sex educator’ at Rutgers.

‘If women do lower their expectations in this way, the more orgasm inequality may perpetuate in relationships.’

The experts surveyed 104 sexually active couples about how much they orgasm, the ideal amount they’d like to orgasm, their expectation for how often people should orgasm (‘orgasm expectation’), and perceptions of their partner’s orgasm frequency.
