Well, sleeping alone burns calories, so yes, it is true that sex does too, but I think the whole "weight loss" factor is hardly what people believe. People tend to think they'll lose so much weight from sex.

How many calories will depend on the workout. In our case, my lovie burns more calories because he's having to do more work (thrusting, sometimes holding me, etc) and me, I don't get much calorie burning since I'm either bouncing or moving in less tiring motions.

You burn calories doing everything, like I said, including sleeping, so thinking that sex is an accurate workout to stay healthy would not be correct, but if you're really working up sweats each time, you'll be getting your workout!

Sure, just don't use whipped cream!

Sitting even burns calories so yes, sex burns calories. And adding to GirlOnGirl's comment, don't add chocolate syrup either If you want to burn calories that is. Otherwise I highly recommend it

The amount of calories burned depends on how much you're moving around and everything... same as with any movement!

It depends on how vigorous you are, but in general, I've heard that 200 Calories an hour is about average.

The best exercise is one you enjoy doing, and will continue to do. A woman recently lost stupid amounts of weight from sex. The worlds fatest woman actually 98 lbs from marathon sex. link

doing anything burns calories, so yes sex burns calories. You get the best burn from 45 minutes of sustained activity though.

yes but you have to have some pretty rough action for it to be anything of any significance

any physical activity burns calories so yes, the common myth is how many calories, which of course depends on how rigourous the activity is

Go to this site and choose the activity calculator. It'll help you figure out exactly how many calories you burn during sex, or any number of other activities.

Any physical activity burns calories (just sitting and breathing, sleeping, or doing household chores), so why wouldn't sex? I think the amount depends on your body/weight and how vigorous you are about it, like all exercises.

True! It can be considered a form of exercise. But, you really do get a work out without knowing it. It definitely burns the cals!

I say yes. I give this as a proof. When someone has a heart attack Doctor usually advise that you are able to easily walk up and down stairs before having sex.
To me that say that sex is at the very least sex is cardiovascularly taxing. I certainly would rather having sex than going jogging. However the amount of calories burned would depend on the kind of sex.

I think that if done right it would be better for toning muscles...but yes...everything burns cals

Well of course. Any cardio activity burns calories. It depends on what kind of sex for how many calories you burn.
