Simple 10 second exercise for better sex

As people age, they start facing problems in their sex life due to erectile dysfunction (inability to get a proper erection) or premature ejaculation (ejaculating too soon). Women too lose their vaginal tone and don't enjoy sex that much. Kegel exercises which take only 10 seconds per rep can come to the rescue and help both men and women facing these problems.
