    NYT: Pelvic floor exercises can help treat incontinence and perhaps sexual dysfunction in men, too, studies have found. Now the rush is on to persuade middle-aged men to get on the bandwagon.

    “People do cardio exercises for their heart, and they do strength training and work on their six-pack, but the pelvic floor is neglected,” said Dr. Andrew L. Siegel, a urologist and author of a paper in the July issue of Urology that reviews the benefits of Kegels for men. “These muscles are the backboard of sexual and urinary health.”

    Sounds like the jury is still out:

    "While some proponents believe Kegels can enhance erections and orgasms, there’s little evidence to support the claim. But clinical trials have found they can be helpful for men with one of the most common sexual disorders, premature ejaculation."

    Despite the lack of proof, strengthening the pelvic floor certainly couldn't hurt. It's not like it's difficult!

    Sex, sex, sex, that's all you boys think about.

    I believe the findings are conclusive that they help with incontinence/enlarged prostates. That's also important.

    I wonder if this is another one of those exercise books for folks that don't exercise . I bet doing heavy squats does the same thing.

    Look, any dumbbell can use a dumbbell and we know resistance builds muscle. If the pelvic floor is a muscle then it isn't a leap. Quick Google search shows the science is there - couple of peer-reviewed journals and FDA Registration. Hell, better sex? I'm in!
