Is clenching and unclenching my sphincter the exact same thing as doing a kegel exercise?

In brief: No, but can be part

Your sphincter can be contracted during kegel exercises, but kegel exercises also include contracting gluteal (buttock) muscles plus thrusting the pelvis forwards.

In brief: Kegel

That is part of the kegel exercises.
However, you want to make sure you feel all of your pelvic muscles tightening and untightening.
