Working out can be a pain but did you know that when you squeeze your abs, you’re also contracting your pelvic floor muscles? It’s all about stablilizing your core. And since an orgasm is a pleasure contraction of the pelvic floor muscles, chances are you’re going to have a fun workout.
Why not increase the fun factor by adding Elvie to your exercises? The new device is a Kegel tracker for your smartphone and is designed to help develop muscle tone and maintain strength in the pelvic floor muscles.
Resembling a super-bendy tadpole doing gravity-defying gymnastics (hmm, coincidence?), you just pop the Elvie into your vagina and, using Bluetooth and motion-detecting sensors, it gives real-time feedback as the wearer clenches and releases. Kegel exercises have always been a little exciting but with this device, the possibilities seem endless.
There are a series of five-minute workouts that come in beginner, intermediate and expert settings. The game component involves the user keeping a ball bouncing above a certain line through controlling the pelvic muscles. Think keeping perfectly stable on a Wii balance board. The goal? To break records in “speed” and “pulse” challenges, which can improve muscular strength, endurance and control.
But aside from the potential benefits to a woman’s sex life and better core strength, the Elvie — which retails for $199 US — will also helps ladies with back problems as well as help control bladder and incontinence issues. Oh, and it’s small and discreet. No one will know what you’ve got going on down there. Except maybe your happy partner.
