Without a doubt, working out on a daily basis is beneficial for both mind and body.

However, if there is one thing that is more enjoyable than hitting the treadmill to burn those calories, it’s sex. In case you don’t know, you and partner can shed a number of calories while sweating it out. Yes!

Sex positions do work a person’s muscle groups. To give you a clearer picture, here’s how many calories you burn on an average, based on your sex position.


Light sex including a short making out session for around 30 minutes burns almost 60 calories which is equivalent to swimming for 8-12 minutes. On the other hand, a 46-minute hook up can help you shed more than 100 calories. And if you want to burn almost 280 calories, try alternating between different sex positions such as doggy style, 69 and reverse cowgirl. You probably won’t believe that the number of calories burnt during this 80 minute sex-session is equivalent to a 4-km run.

Of course, it will not replace your need of a gym membership but doesn’t it feel better to have a little fun sometimes? What do you think?
