WORKING out during lockdown has been a challenge for most but we might have just found the right motivation to get us through – and trust us, you'll be thanking us when you're done.
As it turns out, "coregasms" are a thing as fitness fanatics have revealed online that doing ab exercises causes them to experience an exercise-induced orgasm.
New York-based fitness trainer Bec Donlan, 32, kicked of the conversation on Instagram when she shared a screen grab of an article from Medium – an online publishing platform -and was met with a slew of responses from women admitting that they often climax while working out their abs.
Many women voiced that theypreviously thought the phenomenon was something only they had experienced, and others insisted that the climax is "even better than sex with a man".
The writer of the story confessed that she only "works out her abs for the orgasms," and Bec, founder of Sweat With Bec, joked that "coregasms" could be the perfect "selling point" for her training programs.
"Coregasms are totally a thing," the Medium writer said in her piece, while adding: "Sometimes, they're better than sex with a man."
To Bec's surprise, many of her followers admitted that they often experience "coregasms" while working out – and have done so recently while completing an ab challenge set by the trainer herself.
Bec's challenge calls for participants to do 50-100 reps with an ab roller every day, which clearly proved too much for many as it left them in a state of pure joy.
"I had an ab roller orgasm during your 100 challenge and tbh it was one of the best things ever," one woman revealed, while several others confessed to thinking that they were the only ones who experienced "coregasms" while working out.
One woman even admitted that she avoids going to group workout classes altogether for fear of climaxing in public while doing ab exercises.
"This is literally why I don't like classes that use ab rollers or certain other core movements," she wrote. "It's awkward af in public!"
You don't need to tell us.
Another person chimed in and said: "Omg! Happy this is a real thing and I'm not just some weirdo getting turned on by ab rolling."
Meanwhile, one Instagram user said that she had tried to find answers about her coregasms in the past, and said that she has actually asked several of her trainers about it, but, unsurprising, she was met with confusion and shock.
She said: "Ahhhh my whole life I had this issues and every trainer I asked about it always thought I was crazy. Nice to know I'm not alone."
According to Healthline, coregasms are not entirely uncommon (hooray) particularly for women, and even men,who are regularly working out their core.
The website states the a coregasm is achievedby "contracting the pelvic floor muscles that can be essential to achieving orgasm", something that many women naturally do while engaging their core muscles during exercise.
For men, however,it is believed that coregasms "may be tied to prostate stimulation", but unfortunately for some, experts say that not everyone has the ability to achieve an orgasm while working out.
Additionally, those who can may not feel it in the same intense way as an orgasm experienced during sex.
Ladies, get your ab rollers ready.
