While we’re still fresh on the subject of calories… Here’s one with a twist. It’s not that often I find something interesting enough on someone else’s blog to quote on my site, but this one’s just too interesting to miss! Now, I don’t know to what extent the facts below are true, but they sure did get me thinking! Check it out:
KISSING: Kissing can burn around 120-325 calories an hour, or around 2-5 calories a minute. Engaging in long make-out sessions with your partner is not only good for your relationship; it is also good for your waistline. A 10 minute make-out session with your partner each morning and each evening could burn up to 100 calories a day. That’s 36,500 calories a year, or just over 10 pounds worth of weight loss. When was the last time you made out with your partner.
UNDRESSING: According to an Italian professor, even undressing can burn off calories. Unclasping a bra with two hands burns 8 calories, while unclasping it with only one hand burns up 18 calories. Unclasping it with your mouth can burn 87 calories.
ORAL SEX: 15 minutes of oral sex can burn off the calories consumed in a long sip of wine. There are calories present in semen, though, so if you swallow, there are around 7 calories in a teaspoon of semen. Since the average volume of ejaculation is 1-2 teaspoons, you can expect an average of 7-14 calories per ejaculation. That will easily be burned off during the course of your lovemaking, though.
MASTURBATION: You don’t have to have a partner to enjoy the calorie-burning effects of sex. Masturbation can burn up the calories, as well. You can lose between 100-150 calories for each act of masturbation, according to the Young People’s Reproductive and Sexual Health & Rights Organization. You can raise that amount to around 300 calories, though, through a 5 minute vigorous masturbation session, according to Japanese scientist Dr. Shukan Tokuho.
INTERCOURSE: The average lovemaking session burns between 50 and 100 calories. Having sex 3 times a week burns 7500 calories per year. That’s the equivalent of jogging 75 miles. The more intense the sex, the more calories are burned: up to 15,000 calories annually (at a frequency of 3 times weekly). 15,000 calories wquals over 4 pounds of weight loss per year!
ORGASM: Experts estimate that an orgasm can burn between 60-100 calories.

Anyway.. what bothers me is that it says average lovemaking sessions to only burn between 50-100 calories? Isn’t that ridiculously low? Maybe the couple should ‘bump up’ the intensity a bit? He he. Maybe you could use these facts to con an unsuspecting partner… ? Anyway.. makes you wonder doesn’t it… which would you rather choose? The gym, or the bed? or the dining table.. or the floor.. the sofa.. garden bench…car… in the shower.. Heh heh. Have a great long & naughty weekend people. ;)
