Chances are you've heard that having sex burns calories, but how many? WebMD claims that thirty minutes of sex burns roughly 85 calories. Let's face it though. Not all sex is the same. Some couples are more laid back, while others like to swing from the rafters. Obviously, not everyone is going to burn the same amount of calories. Let's take a closer look at how many calories you can really expect to burn during those hot nights.
An article on Woman's Day laid out the nitty gritty details of various sexual acts and how many calories we can expect to burn during a thirty minute period. For example, let's say you enjoy going down on your man. The act can actually burn 100 calories! If you throw in some pushups and yoga positions, you may burn even more. A hand job can also burn up to 100 calories. Heavy petting burns over 200 calories. This is due to the build up of excitement that increases the breathing and heart rate. What does this all mean? It means that taking a bit of time before the main course can burn a lot of calories.
But, what about the final event? Can sex really burn calories? Yes. The key is to put effort into it. Try the riding position, doggie style, etc. The more you have to move, the more calories you'll burn. Be inventive because just laying there will not burn a lot of calories.
If you want to burn the most calories during sex, you need to make it last. Engage in foreplay, especially heavy petting. The excitement of what's to come can burn more calories than actually having sex. What are you waiting for? Slip into something more comfortable and work that body to burn away those extra inches
