Win Sh! love Cherries

WIN 1 of 3 Sh! Love Cherries Sets

Pelvic floor health is so important, yet so many women neglect to do their kegel exercises regularly: it’s easy to forget about the muffkin when it’s in good working order.

As we age, so do our PC muscles and this is when a weak pelvic floor will suddenly make itself known. The most common symptoms are unexpected leakages when you laugh, sneeze or exercise, and it can be wet enough for women to wear sanitary towels to avoid dampness seeping through their trousers.

Fast, fun ways of eliminating wet moments!

Sh! Love Cherries are fun sets of three weighted kegel exercisers that offers fast result and we have three of these super-cute sets to give away!

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning a Sh! Love Cherries set of your own is to enter the competition below!

  • Love Cherry 1 = 37g, Love Cherry 2 = 57g, Love Cherry 3 = 85g for increasingly trickier training
  • Made from smooth silicone with super-strong flexible tail for easy removal

Using Sh! Love Cherries:

Coat Cherry no1 in a small amount of water-based lube for easy insertion – simply pop it in and do your pelvic floor squeezes.

Using Cherry no1 regularly (10 minutes per day), you’ll find your pelvic floor getting stronger. When the exercises get too easy, it’s time to advance to the heavier Cherry no2.

Repeat the process until you are ready for Cherry no3 (heavy!)

An added benefit of a strong pelvic floor is stronger, easier orgasms.

Sh! Love Cherries are excellent for pleasure too, and we recommend adding them to your box of sex-toy tricks.

Wear around the house to build arousal, or insert a weighted Cherry for internal sensations during solo play or oral sex. You may find this enhances sensations, making it easier to climax!

Happy Mother’s Day! – Sex after Pregnancy

Happy Mother’s Day! – Sex after Pregnancy

It’s almost Mother’s day and we at Sh! thought the nicest thing we could do for all the mums out there would be to make sure they are still having great sex!

So we we’re giving you a quick guide to sex after pregnancy and particularly, pelvic floor exercises.

Pregnancy changes the body in all sort of ways. After having a baby, it’s not unusual for women to feel their vagina is more loose or dryer than usual, and have perineal pain or pain during sex.  Dryness can be caused by reduced oestrogen levels compared to when you were pregnant and can be more marked if you are breastfeeding. The dryness should pass with time but till it does, the best solution is lots of lovely lube. Lube might also help with pain during sex but it takes different people differing times to heal and you may want to talk to a doctor if you are experiencing pain.

One of the things you can do both before and after giving birth, that will be helpful is pelvic floor or Kegal exercises.  A toned pelvic floor muscle can decrease the chances of tearing during labour as well as helping you to recover more quickly afterwards.

What is the PC Muscle?

The pubococcygeus muscle, or PC muscle for short, is actually a sling of muscles that support the pelvic floor, circling around your genitals and tail bone in a figure of eight shape.

Everybody has a PC muscle – women and men. It contracts involuntarily when you have an orgasm. The PC muscle is not exactly an erogenous zone in the usual sense, but if you strengthen and exercise your PC muscles outside the bedroom and consciously flex your PC muscles during sex – it will enhance every sexual experience you have, so that’s another reason to keep yours toned.

PC exercise also help with repairing tightness lost to childbirth and keeping stress incontinence at bay, a possible consequence of pregnancy, childbirth and general aging.

Before you can exercise it,  first you need to locate the PC muscle.

Do this by halting the flow of pee midstream. Try not to tense any other muscles (like your thighs, back or stomach). If you want to be absolutely sure, if you slide a finger up your bum  whilst squeezing your PC muscle, you will feel the contraction.

How to exercise your PC Muscle .

PC muscle exercise is also known as “kegel exercise” or “Kegels”.

They can be done any time, anywhere; on the daily commute,  or school run, whilst doing the ironing or just while watching the telly…

Anytime you have a spare few minutes can be put to good PC muscle practice, though be aware you may, at first, pull slight face grimaces as you concentrate,  so perhaps not during a meeting with the boss or lunch with the in-laws!

Sh!-Silicone-Love-BallsSh! Silicone love Balls £18

You don’t need any essential kit but it can be useful, as well as pleasurable, to have something inside to squeeze against.

For women, love balls worn inside the vagina are the simplest toys for this.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Never put love balls up the bum as they are not safe for anal play and can get lost.

4 Step PC Muscle Exercise program

  1. Contract and relax your PC muscle 25 times, twice a day.
  2. Once you can easily contract/relax your PC Muscle 25 times, move up to doing it 50 times, again twice a day
  3. Once you’ve mastered that, go back to doing 2 x 25, but this time holding each squeeze to a count of 3.
  4. Work back up to 50, twice a day.

If you follow this routine, we promise you will have a PC muscle worthy of a MS Universe trophy!

 PC Mucles Flexing and Breathing

Work at your Kegel Exercises daily, each time trying to improve on both how many, and how long, you can hold the contraction. Try to co-ordinate your breathing in tune with the contraction so that you inhale as you squeeze tight.

Gussie Grips aka Elaine MIller

Gussie Grips – Comedy & Continence.

Is laughing no laughing matter? Comedy & Continence.

Elaine Miller is a physiotherapist and recovered incontinent with a hobby of stand up comedy – so she’s written a Fringe show in response to her patients’ cries of “Oh, don’t make me laugh, the tears are running down my leg”.

“Gusset Grippers” is a comedy show about the female pelvic floor – what it is, why it goes wrong, how to fix it and why having a good one is smashing.

1:3 women aged 35-55 wet themselves when they laugh.  Most don’t seek help, which is a shame, as most cases of simple stress incontinence can be cured by doing pelvic floor exercises.

Elaine’s aim is to burst the taboo around incontinence by presenting evidence based practice in an entertaining way.

Incontinence is a barrier to exercise, is associated with mental health problems, sexual dysfunctions, hip fractures in older women who get out of bed to pee and slip in a puddle, and of course, the wider health issues associated with inactivity – like heart disease which kills 1:5 Scottish women.  Who won’t do zumba, because they’ll pish themselves.

Audience members leave the show with an information sheet, exercise sheet, bladder diary, twitter link (@gussiegrips – when I tweet,  you twitch your twinkle) and the option of filling out a questionnaire at 3 weeks, 6 weeks and 3 months.  That data will be used for Elaine’s study examining whether compliance is enhanced when pelvic floor exercises are presented informally and followed up with daily reminders to #doyerblardyexercises.

Obviously, no one is asked to share personal experiences, and knickers are strictly kept on.  Vaginal prolapse is demonstrated by Elaine’s knitted vagina and crocheted birthing doll. Yep.  You read that right.  Rude knitting, fanny pad adverts and scatological humour. She’s not your average physio.

Gusset Grippers is part of the Laughing Horse Free Festival and runs between 1-24th August, 1200-1300 at The Newsroom (venue 93) 5-11 Leith St.   Free, non-ticketed.  PG.
