I Took A Sexercise Class With My Husband

With their motto of "Couples that work out together stay together & have better sex," I was intrigued.

I Tried It

Living in Los Angeles, I've learned quickly it is definitely a workout city and everyone has their thing. From trap yoga to high yoga, hiking to HIIT, pilates to crossfit to biking on Venice. There are endless places and types of workouts to do here and I have yet to find my niche went it comes to fitness.

When my friend Angel first told me about Evoleros, her exercise studio that combined yoga with fitness and sexercise, I nodded along but I really didn't get it. She went on to explain that her classes were a way for couples to become more fit while learning new sexual positions to spice things up in the bedroom while building intimacy. With their motto of "Couples that workout together stay together & have better sex," I was intrigued.

When she asked my husband and I to take a free private class, I agreed but had no idea what to expect as we walked into her studio.

The studio was dimly lit and the mirrors that lined the room were accented with blue lights, creating a sexy atmosphere. That, along with the soft music that played in the background, helped set the mood. We removed our shoes and positioned ourselves on our mats as Angel began to instruct us. Within minutes, I knew this was no fu fu workout.

After stretching, she had us do different workouts together as a unit. We did sits ups facing each other, where we would kiss after each sit up, and push ups where we would clap hands after. The physical touches that we did while being physical tapped into an energy I didn't know exercise could hit. Despite the inevitable workout pain, it was a pleasurable experience to be able to work out with my husband outside of a crowded gym in a sexy one-on-one environment.

After a lengthy warmup, my husband and I both looked at each other knowingly. We were ready for the sexercise portion the Evoleros experience promised.

Angel read our minds.

After the beginning warmup, we did yoga poses together and workouts that prepared our bodies for the sexual poses, aka the sexercise portion of the workout. The mission behind sexercise is to do fitness exercises that strengthen your body while giving you stamina for different sexual positions, aside from the usual few positions most couples pull out in the bedroom as their default moves. Being that it was our first class and we are not being active members of #teamyoga or #teamfit, we took a more beginner's class where the exercises and sexual positions were more catered to our fitness level.

We tried a few different sex positions. Some were more basic ones like reverse cowgirl but there were also newer ones like the the arc, where I straddled him and basically bent completely backwards while keeping my waist on his; the wheelbarrow which is just as you'd imagine. In the position, my husband stood up on his knees from a seated position and I held my arms on the ground while my legs were wrapped around his waist. We also tried the lotus, which was a very easy one where I sat on top of him with my legs straddled around him.

In each position, we had to hold it for up to a few minutes after each workout. Some were definitely more comfortable than others. The wheelbarrow was really fun, but the arc definitely requires a level of flexibility I have yet to master. Some of the moves were hilarious for us to maneuver into after having a few shots before the class. (Don't drink before working out guys.) Laughter also made the whole experience more sexy for us. I caught my husband giving me the eye quite a few times, which made us want to ditch the class and head home for the real workout...

After taking quite a few breaks, learning a few new moves for the bedroom, and getting an amazing workout in with my husband, the hour-long session was up, and we survived our first sexercise class. All in all the class was fun, sexy, and is definitely something I would recommend to married couples who want to add some spice to their life while becoming more active in general.

I'm still searching for my thing when it comes to a workout I can be consistent with, but this is definitely a class I will be taking again and tips I will be using in the future when it comes to working out in and out the bedroom!

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
