In a relationship, eating out, watching television together, and holding hands while walking is not enough to get a relationship burning. SEX makes a relationship stronger, happier, and complete. Aside from the fact that sex makes both partners feel great with each other (caused by the release of hormones in the body), it also makes both partners healthy by actually burning some calories off their body. So, how many calories do you burn during sex?
Calories burned during sex depend on many factors such as age, sex, height, weight and role of the person. One rule of the thumb regarding calories burned during sex is that the person who does much of the work during sex is the one who loses more calories than the passive one. Calories are burned during sex because the body is in constant motion (brought about by pumping activities and position changes) and the heart rate is racing up. Below is an estimate of how much calories are burned during sex and the numbers are based on a 150lb woman.
Intense kissing for 30 minutes can burn as close as 90 calories and it can even burn more when done in unusual positions. Simple yet romantic kissing for 30 minutes can however burn calories but 21 less calories than with intense kissing. A good position when kissing is like having a push-up where the man lies flat on bed and the woman is on top. Pushing yourself up after a kissing session and back again for another one can burn you 171 calories if done for 30 minutes. This is no doubt the best push up experience one can have!
After your kissing session, undressing is the next part to take. Undressing can actually steal 8 to 10 calories out of you. This depends on the type of clothes and the way you undress your partner or yourself. Studies have shown that if a man undresses a woman’s bra using his mouth, he loses 80 calories for that action. To lose more calories and be more romantic while doing this thing, remove your partner’s clothes in a slower passion and use your mouth instead. Do not take the clothes is a split seconds. With this, you will surely enjoy burning more calories and the same time intensifies the heat of your foreplay.
Sex comes next after all the clothes have been removed. Having sex for half an hour can burn 144 calories. This is just the average calories burned. More calories will be burned if there is frequent position change, more actions done and more moaning being taken out. These extra activities can add 18 to 30 calories to the average calories burned during sex. Adding extra activities while doing sex does not just arouse your partner more but also helps you burn more calories. One example is when the woman is on top, try to sway the hips or rotate it as if doing belly dancing. Doing this would surely make you and your partner want more sex!
