How to get to single-digit body fat with sex
Would you wear your fitness band during sex? If you said yes, you’re not alone – according to a new survey, 36% have, just to see what how many calories they got through.
And the results? Well, they’re impressive. Very impressive. In fact, send your partner this article next time she moans about her spin class. According to a study from the University of Quebec, an energetic sex session can torch as many calories as half-an-hour of cardio.

Researchers fitted 20 couples with fitness-tracking armbands, then analysed their coital exertions over a month. They found men burned an average of 4.2kcal a minute, compared to their partners’ paltry 3.1kcal. Finally proving whoreallydoes most of the work.
The study also compared participants’ between-the-sheets performance to their toil on a treadmill. Though running taxed them twice as much on average (so it's probably best not to swear off regular cardio quite yet), at certain points during sex, men’s calorie burn climbed above the 9.2kcal they logged while jogging. You can think of those spikes as a raunchy form of HIIT.

She found 98% of participants preferred sex to jogging. Which does beg one obvious question: do 2% of people really find a treadmill more alluring than their partner?
The average sex session clocked in at 24.7 minutes, but with our guide to lasting longer you can approach a more marathon workout (and torch hundreds of calories doing it).
