Agreed! I think it's 250 calories per half hour.

i totally agreee!!!!
March 17, 2011 12:46 PM
just add it under something else. It would be difficult to add directly, however, because of the huge fluctuations in the amount burned each time.

Even if it only lasts 15 minutes which is normal for us now cuase we have a 10 month old who seems to have mommy daddy alone time ESP! We have to make do with what time he allows! LOL But yes I totally agree!!!!!!

March 17, 2011 12:47 PM

I agree. Plus my sex life is no one elses business and I don't want o know about my friends. It also verys so much per session. I suggest a heart rate monitor and than add it as other.

I've read that some people put it under "cleaning" and change the effort depending on the situation. I, however, would consider it a bonus.

How would you measure the calories though as it's different for different people, and it's not the same every single time?
I suppose you could just guess by how tired/sweaty you are afterwards. Eef, sweat. What a lovely thought.

I think it depends on how interesting you get while you are nvolved in it....
Pretty sure I was told somewhere that "The Italian Hanger" position burns a heck of a lot more than 250/hr....

I thought about that as well...but I too just consider it a bonus. lol. I know I probably don't calculate all of my calories to a 'T', so it doesn't hurt to get that extra little cardio in.

heee....also added it to my cardio list. sure it is not much calories as per the website....but never had the nerve to log it in cause it will show up on your feed......immediately....yikes...lol
March 17, 2011 12:52 PM
You could always call it aerobics.....

If you really want to know, wear a hrm and create the entry. I think there are so many variables and to position, duration, etc that it would vary quite a bit. But unless you are having the kind of sex equivlant to a total body workout, I am not sure I would bother, just know that you had a great time and burned some extra calories.

Ahahaha!
I read a post like this before and one woman said that she put it under "dancing"!
Now EVERY time I see someone "dancing" for 5, 10, 15 minutes I'm all "OOOOOOOOOHHHHH!!! Bow-chica-bow-wow!!!!" LOL!
I think I'm way too immature to handle it if every time I logged in I could see how often someone was getting it on! LOL!
March 17, 2011 12:55 PM
I completely agree!!!love love

I have thought about this myself. I even asked my husband if I could wear my heart monitor and his reply...."you're pushing it Shelia". So what I am going to do is wear it once under a t shirt. I will let ya know!! Best wishes!

Wow, I am new to the site, but I seriously thought that sex would be counted in calorie burning. lol That's one the best exercises that people can do! Come on MFP...add "sex - super vigorous and steamy" to the exercise bank!!!
