 Orgasm Not Confined to Sexual Event: Study

Orgasm is no more just a sexual event as an increasing number of women are reporting experiences of exercise-induced orgasms called "coregasms", claims a recent study.

The co-author of the study, Debby Herbenick, said that the findings are interesting as they suggest that orgasm was not necessarily a sexual event because most women reporting EIO said that they were not fantasizing sexually or thinking about anyone they were attracted to during their experiences, the Daily Star reported.


According to the study, any abs-engaging exercise could trigger a "coregasm" and for women, the most reliable piece of gym equipment that resulted in sexual arousal, was the "captain's chair".

Other orgasm-boosting activities include pole dancing, spinning and weightlifting.

This study is published in the journal Sexual and Relationship Therapy.
