  • What is Kegel? see this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kegel_exercise

    It's my understanding that you are using the Kegel muscles if you can stop the flow of urine. I can do that and feel it in my butt also so I'm clueless on how to do it otherwise. I would say if you can stop the flow of urine then you've got the right muscle group so don't worry about feeling it in other places.

  • I'm not sure why anyone would say that you can't feel it in your butt. You can feel it tense up kind of, to put it bluntly, in the "under butt crease" lol. You know, where the bottom of your butt connects to your legs.

  • I feel it in my butt a little..but not too much. I do them all the time, they really helped out when i had my daughter. She was 9 pounds 4 ounces and i pushed her out in less than 15 minutes.. They really worked for me.. getting me all toned up.

  • Not only will kegals strenghten your pelvic floor muscles. When practised frequently you can gain much add pleasure for your partner when you do a kegal while your partner is inside you.
