How much sex you need to have to burn hundreds of calories

Is sex a good form of exercise?

One study found that sex burns up to 100 calories for men.

In comparison to a 30 minute light run which burns 213 calories in women while it burns 276 calories in men.

Sex demands only 101 calories in men and 69 in women burning an average of 3.6 calories a minute.

Men weigh more per unit of area that women therefore they burn more energy in physical activities. This is why men use more calories.

On average, most sex- including foreplay- takes less than 25 minutes. A study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that banging lasts only 6 minutes.

Top positions consume more energy than bottom positions.

Using sex for exercise is discouraged though as studies found that 75% of sudden deaths from heart attacks occurred during sex with an extramarital partner.

Exciting sex provides something more pumping action.

However, sex shouldn't just be used as a source of exercise. Since you need to have near-impossible bouts of sex just to burn 100 calories, it's best to just go for a run or do some aerobics instead.

Other physical benefits of sex

Sex does have physical health benefits though. It has been linked with lower rates of cancer, improved mental health and boosts healthier sleeping.

Get it on more often, but don't do it for the weight loss.
