Brilliant. Put on your HRM and say, "But darling, I still need to burn off 200 calories today."

Well if you aren't putting it down for a significant amount of time (5 mins is not significant) I don't suggest you try to count anything. Personally, I'm focused on the task at hand at that time with my mind, thoughts, and actions focused on everyone reaching maximum incline (fitness jargon for this forum). Those discussing incorporating a HRM are clearly distracted and need to focus!!!!!! To a degree some of this a tongue and cheek response and to a degree not.

I have a friend who used to put their three-four year old in the living room with a tape on whenever they wanted to sneak off to the bedroom during the day. One day, for whatever reason, he came into the room and caught them in the act. They told him they were "wrestling", although he never referred to wrestling as wrestling, he always called it "the rock" (a popular wrestler at the time).

Long story short, many times after that when they'd come over, or I'd see them somewhere, their little one would announce, "Mommy, Daddy...the rock today" (LMAO).

I personally think they don't include it as a choice because (as the pounds fly off) our "Sexercise" totals will go up dramatically and THAT might be TMI for this site! Hahalaugh

Um, I am VERY focused to my weight loss! VERY FOCUSED!
I think many just meant it jokingly. Sheesh. I would totally wear my HRM just out of curiosity. How does that make me distracted or not focused?

Why would you want to consider sex an exercise? Do you log your weekly shop as 30 minutes of walking, slow pace?

Love it! I usually drink a glass of wine and call it even.

I kind of feel like counting calories after sex makes it more work and less play. Sure, if I'm faced with a choice between working out and sex I'm going to choose sex but I'm not going to try to justify it. I'm just saying, that's what I'd rather do.

For those of you curious about calories burned during sex and foreplay this calculator separates them.
