Are "coregasms" normal for females? I have orgasms during my workout?

I'm 21 now, and only just realized this now... But ever since I was 6 years old I've been doing this in some fashion! I was at the gym today and used the "captains chair" in which you hang with your arms as if you are going to sit on a seat but there is no seat, and you just hang there. I only lifted my legs 90 degrees 3(!) times and I came to an orgasm. I repeated it 2 more times and came each time. What's so weird is I have never orgasmed with the 2 men I've slept with before... And here I orgasmed in under a minute while not even sexually aroused or thinking of sex. Is this common?

  • I get pretty horny when I've worked out hard or ran a long way. The "runners high". I think that's what it is. Maybe it just gets your blood pumping hard and stimulates you? After a hard workout, I sometimes get unbelievably horny. I don't actually orgasm, but I get pretty close sometimes and feel like I'm going to. Maybe it's the same thing. Or maybe it's completely different. I dunno. But when I lift weight, it doesn't happen. Only after the exercise. Had you worked up a sweat and been working out for awhile?

    Or, I suppose it's possible that you touched some other area of your body or tripped a nerve that ended up releasing oxytocin in the brain, triggering uterus or vaginal contractions. Maybe raising your legs tripped a nerve. Somewhat like how if you pull a hair somewhere on your body, you get a tingly feeling in a completely different part. Some women can orgasm from nipple or breast stimulation, alone, as well, because there's a nerve that connects the nips with the genitals. Some very few.

    Mmm. I think that is abnormal, though. Is it only when you lift your legs in that position? Or is it just exercise? Or is it after you've been working out for awhile? Luccckky.

    • no i think I've read its an actual thing that happens to women. i know what you mean about getting horny from exercise. i think tat happens bc everything is pumping. but this is not getting horny its actually having an orgasm. its not from contact-at lest not in my case. its just the culmination of exertion. not sure how it works but now how it feels.

  • I've heard of this before. It isn't common, but not unheard of.
    Next time you go to an amusement park, try the sling, where they strap you in and catapult you. Supposedly some girls orgasm from that, too. Maybe you do.

    At the very least, you now know you will be fit for the rest of your life. If working out makes you cum, over and over, I expect you'll be at the gym a lot!

    Just... don't be surprised if someone catches on, and a few people start watching you work out just to see you cum.
    Might wanna get some home gym equipment...

  • Yyyyep this is a thing.

    For me, this happens when I do ab exercises that involve holding my entire body straight as a ramrod.
    I get 'em from planks -- if I hold a plank for more than about 30 seconds, it can happen.

    But, in the past couple years, I've built up to the point of being able to do Bruce Lee's "dragon flag" exercise (google it if you don't know) -- and ohhh holy fuckermother.
    If I have a 5lb dumbbell between my legs and I shift around a little bit at the top of the exercise?

    I usually work out at like 3 AM, anyway, so, I can get visibly hot and bothered and no one will really notice -- sometimes I'm the only person on the whole floor.

    In any case, nope -- you're not weird. Rare, but, not weird.

    When I... uh... found out about this, I went and searched for it, and I found this:

    • As if your explanation wasn't hot enough you had to add a gif...

    • @Shaft50 ahah well... lol. Funny, but, looking back through my explanation, it's pretty clinical, except for dat gif tho. I mean, I've written a few things on this site that are so hot that it turned *me* on to write them... but this wasn't one of 'em. To each his own, I guess. Speaking of "to each her/his own" -- If there's one serious piece of learning you should take from this whole thing, it's that the search for G-spots and A-spots and all these other super-specific "spots" is pretty overrated, and that getting to know yr woman INDIVIDUALLY is the key to absolutely everything. Right? I mean, I'm not arguing against the existence of the "spots" or their importance in SOME women, but, the fact that "coregasms" are a thing... pretty much proves that there's absolutely no one-size-fits-all approach to female pleasure.

    • Exactly, and that's the fun with sex... it's never the same with everyone. Different stroke for different folks... literally :-)

    • Show All
  • I've heard of it but it's not something I or any of my friends experience ourselves. So it happens but it's not very common. I guess you can count yourself lucky to have found such a great motivation :P

    • And then some...

  • I've never heard of that but God bless your vagina.

    If that happened to all of us, everyone would be fit as fuck

    • Haha, definitely gives me motivation (;

  • i know i've heard of women having orgasms in yoga so i guess that's totally a possibility too. don't think it's common but it's def normal. i am slightly jealous i will admit hahaha

  • Cosmo published an article about them and a bunch of other orgasms like 2 months ago. They're not sure common but they're not uncommon either. Who care though as long as you're enjoying yourself and it's not interfering with your life

  • first orgasm was unintentional from exercise. i was 6. i didn't know what ute was but i figured it out later. its how i learnt to masturbate-- by cumming from exertion, then locating the source and causing it manually.

    • i dont know if its common for women but it is for me.

  • There's a name for this?

    I've had it happen multiple times.

  • I'm glad this doesn't happen to me at the gym.

  • I'm not sure I believe you or I'm not sure you had an orgasm. Orgasms are far more intense than having one in a gymnasium

    • Well I don't know what to tell you because I felt what I felt. I don't think the surroundings matter quite frankly.

    • not in high school anymore..

    • When I have an orgasm if I were in the gym, the entire gym would hear me

  • You said it's the only orgasm you know. Maybe you just don't know what a real orgasm feels like? I end up clenching all my pelvic muscles when I deadlift and it feels good, but I've never orgasmed or even come close.

    I'm not saying you don't know what you're talking about, all I'm saying is you might be perceiving stuff wrong.

    • no its a real thing. I've been experiencing it since i was a kid and its as real as any other orgasm I've had of which I've had many.

    • @Azara really. That's fucking awesome😄 But I'd probably get really embarrassed if it happened to me in the middle of the gym.

  • yah it happens to many women, while men relax and turn down after a hard day at gym most women get aroused and even have orgasms from hard squats or some machines with chairs, it's because of pushing the kegel muscles hard, so don't worry it happens and it's good motivation too ;)

  • I dunno...
    But I orgasm when I pee so I guess to each their weird kinks lol

    • Amazing! I learned something today. . .

    • @TadCurious 😂😂 Well I am glad 😛

  • damn lol

  • To everyone her own.
    (those men must have been a bit clumsy or egocentric)

  • not a common thing but it's a thing, it's not new and there's tons of articles you can read about and support groups, most of those groups are masturbation routines you can do.

  • Wow, you'd be at the gym all the time... can I be your workout partner? Hahaha

    I've heard of it happening but I don't think it's common, but I do believe you...

  • I would have to ask friends tomorrow. Was it the same type of orgasm like during sex or masturbation?

    • It's the only orgasm I know lmao. Never had one during sex

    • Ok. Just wondering. Now i am curious. Lol

  • No, that really doesn't seem normal lol

  • That's kinda hot for a woman to orgasm while working out. :P

    • Hehe :b

    • Even more wonderful smells on dem leggings tho <3

  • your weird. 4D personality
