As reports, intriguing new research reveals that exercise-induced orgasms are more common than you might think. Researchers at nearby Indiana University gave 530 women an anonymous online survey, and 124 reported experiencing exercise-induced orgasms (almost half of them had 11 or more in their lives) and 246 said they’ve felt exercise-induced sexual pleasure (meaning they were aroused but didn’t achieve an orgasm).

All signs point to abdominal exercises, with nearly 52% of the women who experience these fitness orgasms saying they’d had one in connection with ab work in the past 90 days. So before you head to Londo Mondo to get your one-piece for beach season, gear up and have a little fun in a crunch class or two.
