Here's a colleague's wonderful post about playing dress up with her daughter, and how you too, can have princess feet.  :o)

Must read for everyone who's interested in keeping their guts inside them, not falling on the floor.  Jillian's exactly right and spells it out succinctly and with great illustrations.  :o)

The short answer is yes. ( though I'm not a biomechanist, and I haven't studied this specifically, I think there are quite a number of factors which over time accummulate for both men and women making matters dramatic in the pelvis.  Torsional breathing (moving the ribcage) is something few are doing even though it eliminates downward force you create on your own pelvic floor in so doing, but the lack of core engagement (which supports the organs where they're supposed to live) also exacerbates the downward movement of one's innards.

I can't speak to this authoritatively [having wrong equipment] but I'm sure male urinary issues begin here.  I have heard men in maturity speak of how long it takes to pee compared to their youthful selves.  Prostate issues may certainly have their genesis here too, as once the PF muscle is as tight as it can get, then you have very little circulation to the tissues and that means not much food, oxygen, and garbage removal, either.  Neighbor muscles always relate to weakness in the neighborhood, so the sphincter muscles which control your diaper purchasing motivation are undoubtedly affected as well.

So, Kegels aren't going to work for guys either :o)

Great explanations of why it's important to stand up straight. And to be able to do it, you'll have to release your unconscious tensions: so you'll also really feel good all the time....
