Could Your Pelvic Floor Use a Renovation? 

What Lies Beneath

Page 3 of 3

Bonus Prize: Better Sex
Even subtle improvements to the pelvic floor can bring tremendous quality-of-life changes, from baseline health to some unexpected benefits in the bedroom. "When you strengthen these muscles, guess what? You get a better sex life," says Leonard. Kegels for men not only help with continence issues but also can increase the size and intensity of erections—and pelvic floor vitality can give both sexes more pleasure with intercourse. "I had a male patient who was very happy about that," adds Leonard, who is expanding her much-needed physical therapy program to a second facility opening at Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie (though she will continue treating patients in Rhinebeck). "We've created this safe, warm environment where you don't feel like people are pointing fingers at you. Even with their difficult diagnoses, I often get comments from patients that it just feels good to come here."
