As if there are not enough reasons to have a healthy sex life, let me add one more! Did you know that a 10 minute makeout session can burn 20 to 100 calories!? Just kissing!!!! Say that kiss leads to the bedroom... you can burn 50 to 100 calories or more during 30 minutes of love making depending on your weight, the environmental temperature, duration, intensity, effort, frequency, and even position!!!!!
Other factors can increase calorie burn such as foreplay, or location, and even music... faster music increases calories expended just like during your workout at the gym!
Having intercourse 3 times a week can burn 7,500 to 15,000 calories in a year! That's equivalent to 4 pounds!!! What's more is that love making has other benefits like curing headaches, boosting your immune system, and stress relief.
Sex increases heart rate, raises your metabolic rate, increases energy, can increase strength, and even increase flexibility!
So in these months while you are on vacation and you don't make it to the gym, consider your mattress mambo! Fire up your sex life and burn those calories. Intercourse can benefit your workouts just the same as your workouts benefit your sex life!!!
