A Step By Step Guide To The Coregasm

June 08, 2015 2 min read

Looking for one more good reason to go to the gym? Let the coregasm be it.

Debby Herbinick, sex researcher and author of the new book The Coregasm Workout,says the coregasm is an orgasm experienced by both men and women that is brought about by exercise. Women who have experienced it describe it as less intense than a vaginal orgasm that begins in the abs before heading toward the vagina.

"We don't know how many women are capable of experiencing an orgasm from exercise," says Herbenick, "but we do know that some of the women in our studies started to experience them after following the coregasm program for several weeks—including me."


What is the program and how can you have a coregasm? Herbenick has a step by step guide that will, hopefully, have you adding a little extra bliss to your sweat sessions.

Step One: Get Your Heart Pumping

"Most of the women who experience coregasms start their workout with 20 to 30 minutes of cardio, usually on the elliptical or the treadmill," says Herbenick. And we aren't talking leisurely pace here either. "We've never seen a case of coregasms happening with little to no effort, she says. "It typically occurs after a person has reached what feels like muscular fatigue."

Step Two: Work Those Lower Abs

After your cardio, head straight into an ab workout without taking a break. Herbenick says that research has suggested that cardio activates the sympathetic nervous system which could make you aroused and more likely to orgasm. To engage the muscles at the bottom of your core, try crunches, hanging leg raises, or leg lifts. In her research, she has found these moves to work best although more research is needed to determine why. Herbenick says to make sure you keep up the movement even as you start to get tired.

Step Three: Bring On The Coregasm

You will likely start to notice arousal after your muscles start to quiver and you feel like you can't do another move but keep going for as long as you can, says Herbenick. "Once it feels like it's coming on, you should relax and be receptive to feeling the orgasm without stopping the abs exercise," she says.

What If The Big O Isn't Coming?

If you don't have a coregasm the first time, don't give up on the idea of ever having one. Herbenick says that the stronger your core becomes, the more likely you will be to have one. "I don't want women to feel like this is something they must achieve, but it's a new way to explore your sexuality," says Herbenick.


Look at it this way, your worst case scenario is a killer looking core. Can you really lose giving this one a try?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
