Do you have a weight loss New Year’s Resolution? Sex can help with that! You have probably heard quite a few sex-minded calories burned estimates online. It is pretty tough to nail down one number, but like any form of exercise, it all depends on intensity.
What sex position burns the most calories? This would be the woman on top position. Also, stand-up sex burns quite a few calories as well. The longer you go, the more calories burned, but just be sure you are healthy for long marathon love-making sessions first.
