A new study claims that having sex for an hour burns AS MANY calories as jogging for 30 minutes... and sex is WAAAAAY more fun, right?
According to The Daily Mail:
"Men expend 120 calories during half an hour of sex and women use up 90, say researchers from the University of Quebec in Canada.
That is just under half the amount they would burn in a 30-minute jog. For brief periods during sex, some men used more energy than they did while on the treadmill.
The study, Energy Expenditure During Sexual Activity In Young Healthy Couples, found that, on average, men burned 4.2 calories a minute during sex compared to 9.2 on the treadmill. Women burned 3.1 calories a minute during sex and 7.1 jogging."
