As if the female orgasm wasn’t complicated enough already, the male species has received some perplexing new information about the mysterious sensation.

According to a new study from the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University women can get off simply by working out. No wonder our girlfriends are always at the gym. That’s a lie. We don’t have girlfriends. You probably saw right through that joke.

Of the 530 women who participated in the study, 124 reported having a full on orgasm during exercise and 246 said they’ve had sexual pleasure that was short of an orgasm. While the majority of the women get these orgasms during abdominal exercise, it seems activities such as weight lifting, bike riding, yoga and even a brisk walk can trigger the “big O.”

Our first instinct, upon hearing this new information, was to try to figure out a way to use it to our advantage. Sadly, we couldn’t so instead we’ll remain terrified by the notion that men could be less sexually adequate than a brisk walk.
