There is a lot of confusion and a general sense of misunderstanding on our forum about Reverse Kegels. I hope to clear some of it up with this post. People are mostly aware about Kegels, which is a strengthening exercise. It focuses on strengthening and toning the pelvic floor muscles. On the other hand, Reverse Kegels are a stretching exercise. Its focus is to relax the pelvic floor muscles. Both are equally important to have a balanced pelvic floor. Let me delve into the basics of Reverse Kegels first. Just like regular Kegels, there are two aspects to Reverse Kegels – Front and Back Reverse Kegels. The Front Reverse Kegels are focussed on the bulbocavernosus (BC) muscles, which is present around the inner part of the penis and is responsible for the involuntary contractions. The Front Reverse Kegels work to stretch and relax the BC muscles in order to regularize the inflow and outflow of blood to the penis. These involuntary contractions are an important part of our ejaculation process. But excessive/bad masturbation habits coupled with unusual ways of reaching climax while masturbating creates what we call an unbalanced pelvic floor. This leads to having contractions more frequently than they should occur, which in turn makes a person reach the Point Of No Return (PONR) faster than if they had a balanced pelvic floor. Working on the BC muscles helps people with premature ejaculation. The Back Reverse Kegels are so named because they target the back of one’s pelvic floor. The muscles which are worked upon are the pubococcygeus (PC) and the iliococcygeus (IC) muscles. Many of the regulars focus mainly on the frontal portion with Front Kegels and their P.E. routines, so the front portion is normally the area which is more unbalanced. Back Reverse Kegels can be performed after one has mastered the isolation and stretching of the Front Reverse Kegels. When one is able to perform Back Reverse Kegels expertly, too, they can strengthen their whole pelvic floor. Performing Back Kegels leads to tensing up of the back portion of the pelvic floor. Back Reverse Kegels helps loosen up and stretch that part. Back Reverse Kegels also helps one to work towards achieving Dry Orgasms (DO) and Male Multiple Orgasms (MMO).
