SURVEY: Pleasure/Orgasm During Exercise?

Our research team at The Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University Bloomington Indiana is conducting a study about women, sexual pleasure and exercise. Anecdotally, some women will talk about having experienced sexual pleasure or orgasm while performing physical exercise, such as sit-ups, weight lifting or other forms of exercise. However, there has been very little scientific research on the topic.

Women who are at least 18 years of age are invited to participate in a study about their experiences related to sexual pleasure and/or orgasm during physical exercise.
