Your day-to-day activities, be it sitting at your desk, doing yard work, or playing on the ground with your kids can lead to sore muscles.

Foam Roller Exercises

Over time you begin to notice that these sore muscles are affecting your ability to be sexually intimate with your spouse. This limits the pleasure and may even keep you from wanting to have sex.

Here’s the thing…

A foam roller can improve your flexibility, joint range of motion, performance (in and out of bed), as well as reduce injuries and add to a better sex life.

Yes a better sex life.


When you use a foam roller, aka Self-Myofascial Release*, your body isn’t sore or tied up in knots. You feel better both mentally and physically. Those aches and pains are gone and now you can get into those positions you’ve been thinking about. 😉
