Wonder Device To Restore Women’s Confidence

image

If the sexuality of a woman depends upon her ability to satisfy her man, would she feel inadequate if she can’t? There could be a number of reasons why a woman is subjected to such feelings & one of them is purely medical. Let me share what I’ve learnt in the launch of a very cute & sexy medical device designed to restore a woman’s ability to maintain her grip on her man.

Puan Suhaila - physiotherapist

When the good people at BioInfinity asked me if I have heard of Kegel’s exercises & would like to know more about a revolutionary device to help women, I said yes. At the launch, Puan Suhaila, the physiotherapist from HUKM, gave a tremendous insight to what women suffer from when they begin to age, after childbirth or when their pelvic floor muscles are weakened leading to incontinence problems. Pelvic floor muscles? Well, it’s not muscles you can workout in the gym, I assure you but it’s the part of the woman’s anatomy that holds her pee inside & prevents her from leaking. That will happen if your pelvic floor muscles are weakened or injured from childbirth, surgery or if you lack targeted exercise. We will get to what targeted exercise is about later.

Bloggers & press people

Many women prior to being Puan Suhaila’s patients, couldn’t understand how to exercise that part of the anatomy, being hidden & obscured from their vision and so her instructions had to take them through on a journey of self-discovery & practice. That’s when the workshop became hilarious with Puan Suhaila’s descriptive & suggestive gestures! Soon, the floor (not the pelvic) began to open up with questions, a few being quite bizarre. We were, after all, in a room filled with ladies only, making it perfect to ask everything under the sun and about areas where the sun don’t shine. We were shown pictures of how a woman’s uterus can fall out of place (and into the open) when the pelvic floor muscles weaken. This is definitely not sexy. I can’t imagine anyone telling their spouse, “Honey, can you go down on my uterus?” during foreplay. Some things are just not on when out.

So when the room is full of 20 somethings & 30 somethings, unmarried & married women, it becomes a place of free expression. When we were taken to the gym to work out our pelvic floor with exercises that required us to gyrate, we made heads turn, although it’s ultimately what some women want to do in the bedroom after these exercises! After going through some hip-tossing movements & back-arching workouts, I definitely want to know if my muscles will keep my organs from falling out, not that anything is out of order but from the medical perspective, it is a very good idea for a self-assessment.

We each took home the Vibrance Kegel Device to test & give a full review on what the device does for a woman’s esteem besides the main purpose that it was designed for. Wait for my review on how it functions after I lay my hands on this little wonder of a medical device in a week’s time! Watch this space!

Pedalling Alongside Thousands

I joined a women’s rally on 18 March for the first time, cycling alongside with 4000+ women from all over the country as they gathered to march, picket & chant to call on women voters to choose a clean government for free & fair elections, to end violence against women, better wages for women and a few other demands. In conjunction with International Women’s Day (8 March), the march started from Taman Jaya carpark to Padang Astaka in Petaling Jaya.

Seeing that there were just a few of us who wanted to cycle on that day, Women on Wheels supported Wanita Suara Perubahan & we headed to have a two hour lunch at a cafe before returning to the meeting point to find hoards of people in purple! The theme for the march was to be attired in purple & the wearing of white gloves symbolises a clean government.

Passing cars slowed down considerably to honk in support of the slogans on the placards that women AND men were jostling up & down to make their demands known. I was so inspired by fishmongers, estate & factory workers as well as the indigenous women who took the day off work just to be present to make a stand. Many of the rural folks were uneducated, some illiterate but all were united in making a stand to call for change. Accompanied by several men who were in full support of women’s demands, we marched 3 kilometres to the rally site, like a wave of purple boring through the town on a Sunday afternoon.

There on the field, I was with my Oribike, making new friends with people on my right & left as they asked questions about my foldie & I told them we are part of WOW – Women on Wheels gathering momentum to make a difference one crank at a time.
