Pelvic Floor and Sexual Function

The pelvic floor may be considered to be the muscular and connective tissue that attaches, in front, to the pubic bone and, in the back, to the coccyx bone.

The pelvic floor forms a sling-like structure that supports the three pelvic organs - bowels, genitals and urinary system.

At a fundamental level, sexual activity requires movement of the pelvis.

A coordinated and healthy pelvic floor should be associated with flexibility, mobility, endurance, absent pain and absent concomitant bowel or urinary system problems.
