Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle website, is advising women to start peeing in the shower so they could possibly have better sex.
It sounds crazy, but it's reportedly an effective way to strengthen your pelvic muscles, which support the organs on your pelvic floor, like your bladder and your uterus.
If you have a weak pelvic floor, you might accidentally pee when you cough, laugh or sneeze, or feel like you have to pee all the time.
You also may have less than stellar sex.
To fix all of this, Goop suggests,
Try peeing in the shower squatting down. When you squat to pee as opposed to sitting up straight on the toilet, you automatically engage your pelvic floor and it naturally stretches and tones.
Engaging with your pelvic floor in this way not only helps to improve control of your bladder, but it also apparently improves your sex life. Having a strengthened pelvic floor can increase feelings of sexual arousal, reduce pain during sex and create more lubrication, Dr. Laura Berman explains.
The squatting part is what's most important here. Goop says,
Getting in the habit of deep squatting (envision going to the bathroom in the woods) will actually help create proper alignment in the pelvis, raise pelvic awareness and help lengthen an 'uptight' pelvic floor.
Lots of women already know about the importance of doing kegel exercises to engage with their pelvic floors, but peeing in the shower while squatting is certainly worth trying, too.
Anything for good sex.
