Sex is great! For several reasons! There are all kinds of surprising health benefits you can experience — or should I say SEXperience — whenever you have sex. The most straightforward health benefit, though, is the fact that having sex burns calories. Now, thanks to science, we can tell you what kind of sex you should be having if you're looking to burn the most calories.
Exercise can be boring. Unless poodles are involved, that is. Poodles make pretty much everything amazing.
But if you don’t have a poodle handy, your workouts probably tend to get repetitive and bland after a while.
If you’ve grown tired of your crunches and your burpees, I have an amazing new workout for you to try. And you’re gonna like it.
Or SEXercise if you’re a fan of puns (as everyone should be).
Sex means movement, and movement means calories are burned. But how many calories are we talking, here? Well, it depends on the position. Luckily for us, scientists have discovered how many calories you burn in each sex position.
(Keep in mind the actual number of calories you burn may vary depending on several factors, but this is a good baseline to go off of.)
1. Oral sex.
For every 30 minutes you spend performing oral sex, you’ll burn 60 calories. (That’s equal to about one Babybel cheese.)
And good news! You also burn 60 calories for every 30 minutes you spend receiving oral sex. High five!
2. Making Out
A good ol’ fashioned makeout sesh lasting 30 minutes can burn up to 230 calories!
That’s almost equal to a whole chocolate bar. I repeat: That is almost equal to a Whole. Chocolate. Bar.
Bring on the chocolate and bring on the kisses!
3. Missionary Position
Hey, it’s a classic for a reason.
A bout of missionary-position sex burns about 60 calories…depending on how *ahem* aggressive you get with things. Those who are more *AHEM* emphatic could double the number of calories burned.
If missionary is too vanilla for you, though, there’s good news…
