Okay, so there I was, running a 14-mile marathon training run with MM last weekend, and the farther we ran, the happier I became. I was almost giddy by the end. I felt on top of the world. I couldn’t stop gushing how absolutely. Totally. Great. I felt.
Later that night I wondered to MM if there was something unique that triggers in woman when they run or exercise hard. “A lot of women are obsessed with running,” I said. “Men seem more obsessed with the competition, not the actual running.”
Imagine my delight (my delight!) when I opened up Salon the very next morning and there was an article on the very subject (you can check it out here).
According to the article (and I don’t know about you, but I trust the writers at Salon), when women run, do yoga and other exercises, it can trigger (oh, I’m blushing!), a sexual response.
Yes, women can have orgasms from exercising.
And check out the stats from the article, which is titled: Working the Coregasm: New Science sheds light on the unexpected pleasure that some women feel during exercise
