While we’re still fresh on the subject of calories… Here’s one with a twist. It’s not that often I find something interesting enough on someone else’s blog to quote on my site, but this one’s just too interesting to miss! Now, I don’t know to what extent the facts below are true, but they sure did get me thinking! Check it out:

KISSING: Kissing can burn around 120-325 calories an hour, or around 2-5 calories a minute. Engaging in long make-out sessions with your partner is not only good for your relationship; it is also good for your waistline. A 10 minute make-out session with your partner each morning and each evening could burn up to 100 calories a day. That’s 36,500 calories a year, or just over 10 pounds worth of weight loss. When was the last time you made out with your partner.

UNDRESSING: According to an Italian professor, even undressing can burn off calories. Unclasping a bra with two hands burns 8 calories, while unclasping it with only one hand burns up 18 calories. Unclasping it with your mouth can burn 87 calories.

ORAL SEX: 15 minutes of oral sex can burn off the calories consumed in a long sip of wine. There are calories present in semen, though, so if you swallow, there are around 7 calories in a teaspoon of semen. Since the average volume of ejaculation is 1-2 teaspoons, you can expect an average of 7-14 calories per ejaculation. That will easily be burned off during the course of your lovemaking, though.

MASTURBATION: You don’t have to have a partner to enjoy the calorie-burning effects of sex. Masturbation can burn up the calories, as well. You can lose between 100-150 calories for each act of masturbation, according to the Young People’s Reproductive and Sexual Health & Rights Organization. You can raise that amount to around 300 calories, though, through a 5 minute vigorous masturbation session, according to Japanese scientist Dr. Shukan Tokuho.

INTERCOURSE: The average lovemaking session burns between 50 and 100 calories. Having sex 3 times a week burns 7500 calories per year. That’s the equivalent of jogging 75 miles. The more intense the sex, the more calories are burned: up to 15,000 calories annually (at a frequency of 3 times weekly). 15,000 calories wquals over 4 pounds of weight loss per year!

ORGASM: Experts estimate that an orgasm can burn between 60-100 calories.

***Writeup taken from This Mom Blogs.

Anyway.. what bothers me is that it says average lovemaking sessions to only burn between 50-100 calories? Isn’t that ridiculously low? Maybe the couple should ‘bump up’ the intensity a bit? He he. Maybe you could use these facts to con an unsuspecting partner… ? Anyway.. makes you wonder doesn’t it… which would you rather choose? The gym, or the bed? or the dining table.. or the floor.. the sofa.. garden bench…car… in the shower.. Heh heh. Have a great long & naughty weekend people. Wink

LOL, too funny. I've always said that sex should be an option on the exercise list to choose from. This calorie counter has it though! http://www.csgnetwork.com/caloriesactburned.html Even has 3 levels! Active, Moderate and Passive. LMAO How does one have passive sex??

And I agree, you'd think it would burn a lot more calories than that...

Is it a bad thing when I try to enter sex into my exercise diary and it responds with "you're kidding right"?
First goal: 299 lbs - completed 11/8/14
Second goal: 280 lbs - completed
Third goal: 260 lbs - in progress
Fourth goal: 240 lbs
Fifth goal: 220 lbs
Final goal: 200 lbs
I'll review where I want to be at this point.

How much do you burn just daydreaming about all of the above?

Outstanding! Further proves my point it should be a daily occurrence.
Sex every day keeps the doctor away, unless of course your playing doctor.

There are different ways it can be done.... With different intensities...
Sometimes whole body is used in the act, sometimes only 1 or 2 organs...

Sometimes it last for few mins, sometimes for 30-40 mins, so how should we calculate the calories burned?

Really a complex mathematics.... Very Happy, LOL

Musicmamma, I was thinking the same thing! If I use my whole body for intercourse (presuming I'm the one using my body, which (a)makes my husband happier and (b) burns more calories I presume) and only hands for masturbation (I'm presuming it's limited mostly to that anyway), the math doesn't add up. Either way, I can't think of any better way to make up for slacking off during my HIIT!

50 to 100 calories sounds a bit low. Doesn't say much for that couple. Wink

I think it's time to put my husband and myself on a strict exercise regime.

Hahaha nice - but wow - how is it that masturbating can get to 300 calories while intercourse is only 50-100? That CAN'T be right, can it? I googled - Huff post has a calculator that takes into account you and your partner's gender and age, and then you can select from 18 different positions to get your total. LOL. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2015/09/18/calories-burnt-during-sex-online-calculator_n_8157122.html
