No they really don't mostly because most people don't go fast or long enough. ITs not really much of a workout. Its kind of a weightloss myth. Unless you are doing it like bunnies for hours on end its kinda useless as a workout tool.

I lost about 10 lbs. during our 2 week honeymoon. We ate out every night, but had nothing better to do during the day. We were also both virgins, so we had a lot to figure out.

It can certainly help weight loss if you do it often enough. It's good exercise. :)

Yes it can. Think about it, you are sweating up a storm and moving muscles you never knew you had. Not to mention if you are the kinky type of girl you are becoming an acrobat which then stretching and works out different muscles. If you go longer than five minutes I would say you are definitely working that body out. 

So let's say you have five minutes of four play and thirty minutes of intercourse. I weigh about 180 lbs and calculate that. I have lost 182 calories in 35 minutes.

I see no downside to having more sex.

You burn several hundred calories each time you have sex and this can be beneficial in the weight loss practice... not sure the exact number of calories but it is in the range of 300 or more per sex session ..

I know WebMD isn't 100% reliable, but this may help.

I'm honestly not buying that it does all that much- I mean maybe, but it's not like I didn''t ahve it when I was 239 lbs so...

I think it burns some calories- but I wouldn't call it a "work out" or  consider it as such


unless you are going at it full- on for like an hour nonstop or something
