Are you tired with your daily routine of morning jog!
Have you ever wish to replace, your morning jogging or cardio after the gym with more pleasant body movements.
At University of Montreal, with 21 pairs of volunteers, the question raised in the headline was examined. And here they have reached: in the study for man the average sexual act burns 100 kilocalories , the woman (don’t get embarrass) is 69 kilocalories.
An average, sexual intercourse, if counted from the beginning to the happy ending of at least men, who lasts to 25 minutes. But, of course- sex, sex is different – both in length and intensity of the load.
For example, among the acts studied, the acts lasted from 10 to 57 minutes. We are sure that there will be readers who easily spit the 21 Canadian pairs both in the larger and smaller.
But nevertheless, the data on the cost of calories correspond to the average of the intensity and length of the act.
Therefore, if you want to calculate how many calories you spend during sex, the researchers found it by multiplying the number of minutes of the act with 3.1 calories (for women) and 4.2 (for men). That is, for 10 minutes of sex a woman will spend on average 31 kcal, a man – 42 kcal.
The expenditure of calories was counted using a sex analogue of Fitbit device used to measure physical activity. In addition, they compared the costs of calories for the testers at a run at a moderate speed and found that they ran much more calories than running sex. Girls spent an average of half an hour’s run of 213 kcal (against, we recall, 69 kcal for the average 25-minute act).
At the same time, the researchers found that during intense sex(you can say wild one! 😉 ), you can spend a little more calories than you spend by habitual walking.
