Sex! Sex is a good form of exercise, yes?
Walking with Judah and Estelle along the water at Port Macquarie yesterday, we ran into an incredibly nice, older Italian gentleman walking his cute little brown pomeranian. We got to chatting and after telling him what I do for a crust (Australian term for what you do for a job), he asked “Sex! Sex is a good form of exercise, yes?”.
After initially giggling at his statement/question I quickly realized he was being serious so, I replied: “well, on average you will burn 100 calories an hour during sex so, maybe, if you could go for a few hours then it would be a decent workout”.
“Perfect, I take these little blue pills that my son got me. They help me”. Once again I started laughing because I just found the whole situation funny. We literally met this man 2 minutes ago and we’re in deep conversation about his sex life. Now, he was super nice and it didn’t come across creepy at all but, why does this always happen to me?
15 minutes before this I struck up a conversation with one of the mums at the park where Judah was going around to all the other kids and roaring like a lion (he watches a lot of lion videos on Youtube at the moment” when she noticed Estelle was pregnant. The conversation quickly went to how she didn’t have sex for 8 months after her last child out of doing even more “damage” down there (her words not mine).
Anyhoo, back to the whole “is sex a good form of exercise”. Well, I don’t really track how many calories my clients burn during a workout as it’s more important their overall caloric balance but, 100 calories an hour isn’t anything special is it?
Now, of course, you could go beyond that if you were just super in the mood and going for it but, who wouldn’t get tired after 10 minutes of high-intensity hanky panky?. Plus, (99.9% of people reading this will be female), whose partner lasts for hours at a time?. Let’s get super personal here… I never have in my entire life lol, maybe I need one of those little blue pills?
So, look, if you’re looking for a super great workout then no, sex probably isn’t your best bet.
