Wow, if you want to have stronger pelvic floor muscles, just have sex. For the women, during sex, doing exercises known as Kegals offers some benefits. You will not only have more pleasure, but you will also be strengthening the area and minimizing the list of incontinence later on in your life. As a side note, for a basic Kegel exercise, all you have to do is tighten the muscles of your pelvic floor as you are trying to stop the flow of urine.
