Lift Your Clit

If you’re a woman and have taken a class or had a session with me, you’ve heard me say the following:

Lift your Clit

In fact, I say it so much that a client of mine had a tee-shirt made for me.

Here’s the deal: I say this phrase in my little private one-on-one studio in New York City where no one else can hear me aside from my client sitting there who is experiencing pelvic pain or weakness, or the desire to stay strong during her pregnancy, or the calling to finally connect with the sensuality that lives in her pelvis.

But I haven’t been saying it out loud. I haven’t been sharing all of me, and my wisdom, with you because this felt like a taboo subject.

Well, I got over that.

It seems fitting in a period of time when the word “pussy” is, for better or worse, part of the mainstream language and consciousness that I’m sharing with you — not just my inner circle — that I want you to Lift. Your. Clit.

I want you to do this because your pussy is FULL of muscles that can be strengthened, lengthened, and exercised. A healthy and balanced pelvic floor brings you more pleasure (hello sweet orgasms) and less pain (goodbye pelvic pain) and there is NO SHAME to be had for either of those scenarios.

Do you know how many women are misdiagnosed even though they’re experiencing pelvic pain? Are told to just live with pain? Don’t know who to turn to? Or struggle through pain during sex, are experiencing a prolapse, can’t run or jump because of leaking, want to have more intense orgasms, or simply feel that something is just not right?

The answer is: A LOT OF WOMEN.

So if you’re reading this and you know I’m writing to YOU, then take a sigh of relief because you are not alone. 

And even better news – there are treatment solutions to any sort of pelvic floor dysfunction. Meaning, you can get better.

But first, silence has to be broken around this subject. Lucky for us, we are in the midst of women speaking up about their bodies and finding many other women who have been through or are going through similar experiences. A celebrity just shared her story about multiple doctors disregarding her pain for over half a decade until she was finally properly diagnosed by a (female) doctor and told she had options, starting with physical therapy.

You won’t be disregarded anymore. If you know something is off, speak up. I’m listening and others are, too. Know that you have options. 

Every woman needs a different treatment plan whether she needs to get stronger, release some tension, connect with her pelvis, or all of the above. In my Pilates program with these women, I always start at the very beginning, which is, LIFT. YOUR. CLIT.

(For those of you who might not know exactly what that means let me break this down briefly — the clitoris isn’t necessarily part of your pelvic floor muscles. It is a female sex organ that is externally located above your vaginal opening and extends deep within the female pelvis (and offers pleasure during sex for women.) Since you will most likely find it easier to engage the back of your pelvic floor (fondly called, the butt) I’ve found that most women have an easier time locating the general area of the front of their pelvic floor when they can imagine they are lifting their clitoris with muscles surrounding that area.)

Try it.

That’s your pelvic floor working.

(Pelvic floor is just a fancy word for all the muscles that weave together and make up your Pussy.)

Whether you’re blushing, laughing out loud, finding your pelvic floor for the first time, feeling you are ready to break your silence or simply remembering to do your Kegels right now, You’re Welcome.
