With the New Year, there are plenty of people who have decided that they want to get in shape for 2018. But, if going to the gym, jogging, or taking up a sport are not really your thing, you could perhaps try sex as a way to lose weight – it’s got to be more fun, right?
But how many calories are you going to burn? That all depends on your level of activity, but here are a few pointers to get you going…
Let’s keep things clean to start with! Just making out for 30 minutes burns 230 calories – which is pretty good going to get some calories burning as you build up to something more ‘active!’
A 30-minute hand job burns 50 calories, according to research, but we have to wonder who wants to be doing that… and just for 50 calories?
Giving or receiving oral sex for 30 minutes burns around 60 calories – however that isn’t even equal to half a Snickers bar. Seems like we will need to up the activity to make any real difference to your weight in the bedroom…
How about good old-fashioned Missionary position That’s got to burn a few more calories, right? Well, no actually! This position only burns 60 calories per half hour – although if you up the intensity you can burn double that…
Are you ready to go to the next level?
Upping the ante somewhat, Doggystyle apparently burns through 110 calories per half hour (if you’re the one at the back), and slightly fewer if you’re not. Which, frustratingly, is still less than just making out…
How about switching things up and letting the lady go on top? ‘Cowgirl’ and ‘Reverse Cowgirl’ let the ladies burn up to 110 calories every 35 minutes….
So, what’s the answer to slimming through sex?
It seems that plenty of foreplay and switching positions is the way to go if you want to burn some calories in the bedroom.
OK, so we were surprised at how few calories were getting used up there, but it’s still got to be better than going to the gym though, right?
