According to some research, few women expierience orgasm solely as the result of penetrative sex. A good majority of women achieve their orgasms in different ways. The clitoris and its 8,000 nerve endings serves as much popular alternative. Sometimes women are able to access their orgasms through more elusive means.

A team, led by Debby Herbenick, co-director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University, located a total of 530 women to participate in a cross-sectional, anonymous, Internet-based survey.

124 participants reported having experienced an orgasm (coregasm) during activities like as biking, climbing, yoga, weight lifting and running. Out of that group, a lucky 9.6 percent said they were able to “coregasm” from a brisk walk alone. An additional 246 participants reported to have experienced sexual pleasure (though not orgasm) through exercise.

The study does NOT determine how common it is for women to experience exercise-induced orgasms, the authors did note that it only took five weeks to locate 370 women who had experienced sexual pleasure while exercising. These findings have been published the journal Sexual and Relationship Therapy.

Their main findings:

1. Abdominal exercises are the most effective means of achieving a coregasm

2. You don’t have to have sex to experience sexual pleasure

3. Coregasms have been around a long time, but they’re not often discussed

4. It might be possible for men to experience coregasms as well
