There a number of activities a person can indulge in to sweat, dancing, jogging, stroll in the neighborhood. But the question here is, does sex burn calories? Calories are units of energy and we as humans have to / need to work out to burn this calories to keep fit.
As the phrase goes “Work out, then make out.”Meaning you first hit the gym for a healthy dose of exercise—you burn about 100 calories in 30-45 minutes of full cardio/weightlifting/aerobics— then dive between the sheets and torch another 100 with an hour of foreplay and sex.
Apparently sexual arousal raises your heart rate and can burn some serious calories too. Kissing and making out is a great way to show/display love and affection and improve your bond as partners but it can also help you burn calories. “If and once the kissing gets vigorous it could be even mean up-to 90 calories burned in an hour,” says Jaiya Kinzbach, a Los Angeles–based sexologist
Most of us have this notion that sex is not a workout, but who knew that a 45-60 minute “sex-capered” with your partner could burn off the French fries you ate in the ‘drive-through’ or Dessert/beers you had after dinner? To make sure that you actually burn over 250 calories in a sex session the secret is making it intense / hot and making it last for longer.
BUT the best and ULTIMATE way to maximize calorie-burning during intercourse is to make sure you and your partner get orgasms. It is estimated that women who orgasm during sexual Intercourse burn more calories during lovemaking than those who do not.
Other benefits of sex: a healthy heart, its stress relieving and participants get a stronger pelvic muscle
Bottom line: Different research give different results on the number of calories burned during sex, but it’s safe to estimate around 3 – 4 calories per minute. Sex has very many other health benefits apart from burning calories, but don’t count on sex for your quota of physical activity ,get out there and work out when/if need be that is just but a bonus .
