What Dr. Eilber can say in an interview on
Sexual Health & Exercise

You eat right for your heart health, you do yoga for your mental health, so why not exercise for your sexual health too?

    1. Confidence. When you exercise, you feel fit and trim which generally improves self-esteem, and nothing is sexier than self-confidence. 
    2. Endurance. Regular exercise improves cardiovascular health which in turn increases endurance. When it comes to increased endurance and sexual activity, no explanation is needed.
    3. Circulation. Aerobic exercise increases circulation which results in increased blood flow. Increased blood flow to the genitals is what happens with arousal and results in improved erectile dysfunction and increased sensation.
    4. Intensity. An orgasm is a rhythmic contraction of the pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic muscle exercises, also known as Kegel exercises, strengthen the pelvic floor which can potentially make orgasms more intense.
    5. Stress Reduction. Stress has a negative impact on libido, and exercise can help reduce stress to improve sex drive.

Heart health, mental health, and sexual health—all part of your overall well-being.
