We all know yoga offers several benefits to both the body and mind, but did you know it is the secret to a steamy session in the bedroom? Yes, you heard it right. That’s because yoga is known to reduce stress levels in the body, and that means less cortisol levels. When you are perpetually stressed, your sexual desire goes for a toss. All in all, when you practice yoga, you also become more aware of your body and even your partner’s, helping you understand what both of you like and dislike.

There’s evidence to prove this claim. A 2009 study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine observed that yoga can improve sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, and overall sexual satisfaction. Why may you ask? That’s because yoga increases circulation to the pelvic region, and activates and engages the body’s core, and increases oxygen levels in the body. Everything put together helps you reach the big O. And we anyway know, it is not easy for women to reach an orgasm, unlike men who climax much faster. 

And guess what? There are several yoga poses that are more beneficial than the rest. Want to find out? Well, here are three yoga poses that can help you orgasm:
