Women love reading Cosmo for their sex information and how to be better in the sheets. And men love that women do that. But what Cosmo is telling women is that they can burn up to 85 calories per half hour of sex, and those calories are all fat. It also suggests that sex is a great substitute for snacking.
However, according to cnn.com, sex typically doesn’t make it the full half hour. In fact, sex, on average, lasts about six minutes. So, it’s obvious the sex will not and cannot replace eating healthy and going to the gym. Even though sex does not help you burn 100-300 calories per bout, like some rumors say, there are some ways to help burn some extra calories (if that’s what you are looking for during sex).
-Get creativeThose that are yoga-goers, incorporating some of your yoga moves help burn some extra calories. This will help keep you limber as well for your next yoga sesh.
-Eat foods that help you last.For men, those foods are figs, oysters, celery, blueberries and even chocolate. These foods will help you last that full half hour.
-Don’t be afraid to mix it up.
By incorporating new positions, you will surprise your body. This will help you use different muscles and get a better work out during sex.
-Go back to the gym and start again.
According to cnn.com, women that train at the gym and work out during the week actually have more active sex lives. So, when you’re all tired out in the bedroom, go back to the gym and tire yourself in a new and more appropriate way for the public eye.
