Why isn't SEX listed under available exercises ??? I hear a 30 minute or hour session burns a lot of calories, but it isn't listed (or at least I can't find it)under the fitness options.Very Happy

why do we have to make the word SEX all capitals?


it's roughly 145 per half hour. just add it in manually

Because, like many other things, you would have to have it in a bunch of different categories.. such as crazy monkey sex, half-sleeping drunk sex, just-laying-on-the-bottom sex, or I-did-all-the-work-cuz-my-husband-is-a-lazy-pos sex.... You burn different amounts of calories depending on how hard you work.. so it's tough to make 1 generic entry... Wink

This is from my favorite webcomic - XKCD.com. It's so funny and yet sooo true!

I actually looked this up because I was wondering too. From what I've found on average a 150lb man will burn about 72 calories per 15 minutes. That again, varies on how vigorous it is.

Sex is a pretty hard thing to gauge. Some people just LAY THERE. And others have acrobatic sex. I’ve found myself all worked up and more sweaty than a half hour on the treadmill a many a time.
