Kegels- are they bad?
« on: November 23, 2022, 12:12:50 PM »

Since I’ve watched neov’s videos on YouTube I’ve been trying hard to not clench or level during erections. At first it was very hard to do but now I seem to be getting the hang of it. I noticed that I can go longer without the constant clenching and I’m not constantly on the edge of orgasm and having PE. I’ve always had a bad habit of constantly clenching and I think it played a role in my pelvic floor dysfunction and erection issues. However lately when I get morning wood I find myself involuntarily clenching/kegeling and I get mad at myself for doing it, but it’s almost completely involuntary. I have to really relax and focus to stop. I’m wondering if these involuntary kegels are setting back my progress in fighting my pelvic floor dysfunction and pe problems? I reduced the amount of times I masturbate and have been having sex instead with my new gf. I feel like this has helped too although I’ll admit I’ve used 5mg cialis most of the time for backup. But the last time we had sex I didn’t take any pill and I was surprised to have just as successful intercourse. I attribute this improvement to reducing masturbation and possibly from avoiding kegeling/clenching. Any thoughts on kegels are welcome.

Kegels can make your pelvic floor extremely tight and kept in that state. I also have battled cpps, (chronic pelvic pain syndrome).  Clenching can be bad for individuals that deal with this problem. You need to stop edging if you are doing so as it will make things worse. Relaxing the pelvic floor and incorporating some stretches daily will help loosen things up and keep you out of pain. There are videos on youtube as such.

I think it was in 2016 or something I began clenching almost 24/7. Literally at work I would clench, behind the tv, when jacking off, when having sex, constantly kegeling whilst both erect and flaccid. It would make my dick rock hard and increase my erection angle and also made my orgasm shoot like a gun.

6 years have now passed and I quit this habit long time ago. I now have a very dysfunctional/tense pelvic floor for at least 3 years straight. I suspect it was the constant kegeling that contributed to this.

I would advise against doing this clenching.

I also did a lot of kegels for about 6 years straight and I wonder if this has also caused my tight pelvic floor. I also fell on a steel pipe between my legs in 2019 and messed up my tailbone big time. It has made recovery a long process.

Ouch. You literally have balls of steel.  ;D

Read about tons of guys online who got dysfunctional pelvic floors due to constant kegel and clenching.

LOL .. I would wake up in such extreme pain in my rectum and tailbone that I could not breathe. I had to take flexerol and do some serious pelvic stretches to get out of pain, No fun at all!!
