Men love to work out their bodies and gain muscle strength and definition in all areas – except the penis. That’s why I wrote the first part to this series called “Why Kegel Exercises Can Change A Man’s Sex Life” where I outline all the benefits.
It doesn’t usually occur to men that the whole pelvic region is an area that can be strengthened and toned. As a sex therapist, of course I know the benefits of male kegels, but when I suggest this training to clients, I often get a look that says, “Huh?”
Now with products like the Private Gym, I can refer clients to a training program that’s easy to follow and gets results. It’s important for me to keep up with what’s new and cutting edge for both my clients and students, but first I had to put my money where my mouth is and do the training myself to make sure this is a product I can fully endorse.
Private Gym has a lot going for it even before you start the regime – it’s an FDA-approved male Kegel training unit that comes with a book, Male Pelvic Fitness, by Andrew Siegel MD, a DVD to demonstrate Kegel exercises, and penile weights for resistance training. The packaging is very appealing to men with its steel grey and vibrant orange color scheme – it looks like a fitness training program, which is key.
The Private Gym program calls for an 8-week regimen made up of two 4-week programs. The first 4 weeks is the basic training and the second 4 weeks is the resistance training. I started with the second 4-week program as I do Kegel exercises regularly. I recommend for everyone else to start with the beginning basic training or you could strain your muscles.
I tried on the plastic/metal ring that goes around the shaft of the penis. It’s snug, adjusts to most erect penises and the weights are magnetized to fit securely on the ring. I found the magnet design creative and comfortable.
Porn For My Own Good
The training begins with 3-times-a-week weight lifting exercises. You need to have an erection to do the training, so….I decided to trade in my Private Gym repetition counter DVD for a porn DVD. I’m sure the creators of the product hear this a lot. I kept count myself and used the ‘inspiration’ to keep it up, literally. I actually enjoyed connecting Kegel exercises with porn. It made the idea of Kegel exercises more erotic and less like homework. I quickly got the feel and the balance. The training is quick, just a few minutes using the DVD.
The DVD has great graphics that show how to do Kegel exercises, and the clear images provide a useful template for your penile and pelvic training. It also offers support with counting your repetitions, but as I mentioned, you might need some more interesting visuals to maintain an erection during the exercise time.
The book that accompanies the kit is excellent. It’s filled with important educational information about penile pelvic health, something that most men never think about, even as they work out the rest of their bodies. It’s really a must-read for anyone who wants to take good care of their penis. And who wouldn’t? I especially like chapter 11, which shows pelvic exercises to do to improve circulation and loosen tension in the pelvis. I recommend it to clients with erectile difficulties, premature ejaculation, and performance anxiety erection concerns. Dr. Siegel is a urologist who has seen it all with his male patient clientele, and his knowledge and insights are extremely useful when it comes to how your anatomy works, and what specific issues you can resolve with exercise.
After the first four weeks, I felt new confidence with my penis. I have been doing kegels for many years, but to have a training program that keeps me on schedule is really helpful. Also, I don’t usually incorporate resistance training as much as I should, so the penile weight system is going to get a lot of usage in the future. These kinds of exercises make an enormous difference to penis strength and truly make sex better. I encourage you to read another ‘hands-on’ review by Ben Greenfield here, where he quotes his wife’s reaction!
For someone with urine leakage, a softer erection, an early ejaculator, or anyone who wants to strengthen their penis now to prevent future penis difficulties, Private Gym would be a wise investment at $100. If you ask me, as many of my clients now do, it’s an excellent long-term investment in sexual health and performance.
