Has anybody heard of a core-gasm before?

November 14, 2007

OK, here’s that odd news story that I promised you from yesterday. I was doing my day job looking for new publishers when I came across THIS ARTICLE. In it, they talk about a pleasurable sensation that some women are feeling when they do abdominal or core exercises.  Now I could go a lot of places with this, but I’ll stick to the exercise.

Can you imagine if more people could experience this?  What about the men?  I don’t like to exercise, but I know that I need to.  If we men could get a similar sensation just by exercising our core, (get those pictures out of your mind) you probably couldn’t stop men from going to the gym.  We would become  a nation of six pack having men and women.  And I don’t think anyone would complain about that.   Besides who wouldn’t want to come home to a healthy happy spouse.  🙂

I found it interesting…I hope you do too.
