In this solo episode, I dive into the research of Debby Herbenick and Dennis Fortenberry in their article Exercise-induced orgasm and pleasure among women. The study had the goals of understanding of exercise-induced orgasm and exercise-induced sexual pleasure. This studied surveyed over 500 women and found out how many experienced orgasms and/or sexual pleasure while working out.


This topic is shared to

  • help reduce how taboo discussions about orgasms are.
  •  encourage more of us to exercise to improve the quality and quantity of our life.
  • Explore the amazing research field surrounding the femme orgasm.


Let's normalize sexuality talk.
