What is the Pelvic Floor?
The pelvic floor is a mass of muscles located in the base of the pelvis. These muscles form a protective sling from the pubic bone to the tailbone. According to the Association of Pelvic Organ Prolapse, we have 14 muscles in the pelvic floor. Muscles are masses of fibrous tissues and they can be long or short, tight or lax, misaligned or aligned, overworked or underdeveloped. Our pelvic floor muscles are similar to the muscles in our biceps. In order for the pelvic floor muscles to function properly they need full range of motion and be the correct length. Tight muscles do not have full range of motion. Without full range of motion it is hard to have pelvic floor coordination.
What is Pelvic Floor Coordination?
The ability to easily contract and relax the pelvic floor muscles on demand. Basically you are doing a little pelvic floor twerk!
When it comes to pleasure what role does the pelvic floor play?
Our pelvic floor muscles ensure our sexual organs stay in place. If these muscles are not functioning properly the bladder, uterus, and the anus could start to shift, slide and fall out of place. Literally. This condition is called pelvic organ prolapse. Those with this condition describe it as an intense pressure that feels like their insides are falling out. As you can see properly functioning pelvic floor muscles are vital! Not only for pleasure but for having a healthy fully functioning body.
