Men don't have pelvic floors, that's what women have!
Many years ago I had a guy referred to me for Pilates from a local Spinal Specialist. He was clearly dubious about coming and didn't know anything about Pilates. So we got started and as always I talked about what muscles we would be working and looking to improve to help with his back pain and that included the Pelvic Floor.
He was quite insistent that he didn't have a pelvic floor, that's just for women. When I pointed out that incontinence pads are like nappies and you get boy ones as well as girl ones he was quite put out! Sadly we just had the one session, he wasn't a convert. However, the pelvic floor is pretty vital for all of us and more importantly it can also help support your back and in our Pilates classes it's always part of the muscular recruitment process for each exercise.
I had a C Section, mine's ok.
