Why isnt sexual intercourse available as a choice for excercise?

It certainly burns more calories than standing, sitting, resting, or sleeping.

Another website says intercourse is good for about 330kcal per hour depending on your weight.

I imagine it would also depend significantly on style etc but Im not trying to debate finer points here. I just think it should be an option in the list.

This has been discussed on another thread:


Someone who is busier than you is working out right now.
There will come a day when you can no longer do this. Today is not that day.

5 times a week = 150kcal....kcal per hour is 330. 150/330 = 27 minutes. 27 minutes / 5 times = 5 minutes 27 seconds per time.

Clearly you are doing it wrong =)
