The Kegel Project: End of Week One Update

Monday was the final day in Week One of the Kegel Project.  What a great week!  Each participant did their own workout however they wanted to do it.  Some saw improvements after just a few days, some haven’t seen improvements yet.  As far as I know, all participants will continue with Week 2 except one, who bowed out after a few days due to unrelated health issues (her info will not be included in this post).  So, we dropped from 9 total participants to 8.

Need a reminder of what we’re doing here?  See the introductory post and the brief update from a few days ago.

Now, some of the participants tell me they are doing something else this week.  Some are going to try Kegels during intercourse, some are going to try Violet Blue’s suggestions, some are going to see if their squeezing can get longer and longer!

So, here we go!

Week one: 7/16-7/22
K (That would be me.)
Day 1:  Morning: Wore the Je Joue Ami size 2 (weighing roughly 78g) for 2 hours while doing housework.  Afternoon: Did a few squeezes occasionally to see how long I could hold it.  I was hoping for ten seconds; barely made it to 5.  Squeezed for five seconds, release for five seconds for 10 reps.

Notes: I thought I’d be able to hold for 10 seconds at a time with no problem. I can barely squeeze and hold it for 5 seconds, and really struggle to get to 7.
Day 2: Afternoon: Wore Ami 3 (weighing roughly 106g) for just over an hour. Most of it was sitting. Fell out twice and really struggled to keep it in. Evening: squeeze and hold for 5 seconds, 25 times through the course of the evening.
Day 3: Early afternoon: Squeeze and hold for 5 seconds, 10 times. Notes: can now squeeze for 10 seconds. Evening: Squeeze and hold for 10 seconds, 10 times. Was difficult to get to 10 seconds tonight.
Day 4: Dropped down to Ami 2 to give my muscles a little break. Wore for two hours.
Day 5: Wore Ami 3 for an hour before I couldn’t keep it in anymore. Notes: G-spot orgasms are stronger and easier to achieve.
Day 6: Squeeze and hold for 10 seconds ten times. Decided to see how long I could hold for.  Made it to 30 seconds comfortably.
Day 7: Wore Ami 2 for two hours.
Notes: It was very encouraging to be able to jump from 5 seconds on Day 1 to 10 seconds on Day 3 to 30 seconds on Day 6.  G-spot orgasms now come fairly easily and I feel like my resting position (when I’m not Kegeling) is not as relaxed as before, as if I’m now tensing without realizing it.

Princess Consuela Banana-Hammock:

Day 1: Squeeze for 5 seconds, rest for 5.  Repeat for 5 minutes, 5 times throughout the day.
Day 2: Squeeze as hard as possible 25 times, 3 times throughout the day.
Day 3: A few squeeze and holds 3 times throughout the day. Evening: a few squeeze and holds; made it up to 10 seconds. Notes: She is pleasantly surprised she made it up to 10 seconds today.
Day 4: Miss due to accidental back injury.
Day 5: 5 second squeezes, 15 times.
Day 6: Squeeze for count of 12 five times.
Day 7: Squeeze moderately (let’s call it Stage 1) for two seconds, harder (Stage 2) for 2 seconds, relax to Stage 1, then relax completely. Stage 1-Stage2-Stage1-relax for 10 reps, twice throughout the day.
Notes: Having less accidental leakage during workouts by day three.  And you see how she made her own workout for Day 7?  Love it.

    • I got with a few educators to see if there were any studies on Kegels in women in their 60s and 70s. That doesn’t mean they don’t exist. We just don’t know of any offhand.
