Okay, so is it just me here, or do any of you ever become aroused during exercise? It doesn’t happen every single time I work out, but it has happened often enough now that I mentioned it to my friends and decided to write about it here. I have found two primary ways of exercise that tend to arouse me from time to time.
The first would be running. Sounds crazy, huh? I don’t generally experience arousal on the treadmill, although it has happened once. But running outdoors tends to be when it happens most often for me. It’s generally during the first mile or two and then subsides with each additional mile. I mean, for me I’m lucky if I’m still able to breathe properly and form a complete sentence after a few miles, so feeling all tingly down in those parts really isn’t something that I experience when I run longer distances. I wear compression shorts under my running shorts sometimes, but not always. I’m not sure if that matters or not. There is just something about the initial stages of running that tend to set off little sparks and I find myself laughing at how utterly absurd it sounds to be aroused while running!
The other type of exercise that has a tendency to arouse me is using the ab-crunch machine at the gym. The first time it happened I was shocked. I remember smiling and thinking “For real?” 😆 The next time it happened on the same machine I came home and told my husband about it and he found it interesting. This kind of makes sense to me though, because on that machine you have to use your lower abdominal muscles to help lift a set amount of weight while you are doing a crunch…and in the process of trying to use those lower abs, you also end up tightening up your pelvic floor muscles (or at least *I* do!) Those are the same muscles that I use when I’m actively trying to achieve orgasm. So to me it makes sense that if I’m using those muscles, I experience a little arousal. Only once have I come close to having an orgasm at the gym. After that I started doing extra sets on the ab-crunch machine… you know, because I really need help in my mid-section and all 😉
So there you go… the two types of exercise that sometimes leave me feeling funny. Usually it passes though, the harder I work/run. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? If so, what types of exercise or exercise equipment have affected you?
