WOMEN who jog enjoy more intense orgasms — and the further they go the better the climax.
Experts say running strengthens pelvic muscles involved in the big O and helps improve blood flow to vital areas.
Researchers say GPs should use the findings of the study to remind women that jogging has more benefits than just helping to keep you fit.
They analysed the effects of running on the sex lives of 180 volunteers who jogged at least once a week.
One group ran more than 12 miles every seven days for the study, the other for less than 12 miles.
They were also quizzed about their love lives.
The longer distance runners were 28 per cent more likely to have a better climax, and their orgasms were found to be a third more intense, the International Urogynecology Journal reported.
Researcher Shanny Sade, from Ben-Gurion University in Israel, said: “Our study found women who ran the most experienced more intensive orgasms.
“It may be explained by better clitoral circulation, better working of pelvic floor muscles, better self-esteem and body image, or a combination of these.”
Sex therapist Phillip Hodson, said: “Running, it appears, is the perfect sex aid — especially for women.
