They say having sex can burn up to 200 calories!
I guess it also depends on what you’re doing during sex, and how intense it is – but about 30 minutes of sex can burn up to 85 calories. A bit disappointed if you’re not even having 30 minutes of sex…well hopefully this will cheer you up. Adding up how many times you have a sex a week, or a day, will add up those calories! 42 half-hour sessions of sex can burn up to 3,570 calories, more than a pound lost!! Yeah, that’s right you better get on it!
Here’s a few other fun and beneficial facts of having sex:
- sex boosts immunity
- relieves stress
- improves heart health
- improves self-esteem
- improves imtimacy
- reduces pain – unless you’re really kinky and throw out a hip! hehe
