The theory is that certain hip-opening poses like a “Wide-Leg Squat”, “Lizard Pose” and “Frog Pose” encourage blood flow below the waist, while loosening and opening up the hips, thighs and pelvis. They also strengthen pelvic-floor muscles (which promote deeper and better orgasms) and inner thighs and hips, making it easier to get into a variety of playful sexual positions.
