BROOKFIELD, WI (September 12, 2013): According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, 43 percent of women experience sexual issues such as low sexual desire, vaginal dryness, orgasmic dysfunction, difficulty maintaining arousal, and painful intercourse at some point in their lives. Women who are postpartum, menopausal, and the aging population can experience weak pelvic floor muscles causing not only painful intercourse, but in some cases, the inability to orgasm. NEW Intensity, Intimate Health and Stimulation Device, used in the privacy of your home, is designed to help women exercise the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) for improved sexual health and responsiveness.
“More than 50 million women use devices to stimulate sexual pleasure. But women should not confuse Intensity with a vibrator,” says Dr. Lauren Streicher, Associate Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Northwestern University’s Medical School. “Intensity tones the pelvic floor using mild muscle electrical stimulation and an active resistance balloon to exercise the PFM. The gentle massage of the internal muscle stimulation combined with vibration of the external clitoris and internal clitoral root can result in an orgasm. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that support the bladder and other pelvic organs. A strong, healthy pelvic floor is vital to many female sexual functions as these muscles create an internal sling around the vagina. So, a strong pelvic floor facilitates stronger orgasms.”
The combination of muscle stimulation and active exercise acts as a “trip to the gym” for the pelvic floor. A study in the International Urogynecological Journal, shows that exercising the pelvic floor muscle enhances orgasm and arousal for women while helping them control urinary incontinence. “Strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles results in improved sexual desire, performance during coitus, and achievement of orgasm,” says the author of the research, Dr. L. Lowenstein.
The study of 176 women completed in 2010 found that stronger pelvic floor muscles were directly related to arousal, achievement, and quality of orgasm. If the pelvic muscles become weakened through vaginal childbirth, smoking, trauma, or aging, women may feel significantly less sensation in the vagina during intercourse, which can make achievement of orgasm almost impossible.
Intensity is available to women nationwide through Pour Moi LLC, a Wisconsin-based company devoted to women’s pelvic health and wellness.
