Sexercise The Night Away

There are many ways to stay fit. You can buy some washed up actresses fitness video and bounce around in lycra in the comfort of your own front room or maybe take up smoking and puff away those hunger pangs.
Alternatively you can follow the advice of the NHS which is usually along the
lines of eating a varied diet and leaving the cakes on the shop shelves but no, this time the NHS is advocating a good old bonk. Cor blimey matron.
Calling it 'sexercise', the NHS suggests you forget about jogging round the block and instead indulge in some bedroom gymnastics because making the two backed beast lowers the risk of heart attacks and helps people live longer.
"Endorphins released during orgasm stimulate immune system cells, which also helps target illnesses like cancer, as well as wrinkles," they reckon.
"Sex with a little energy and imagination provides a workout worthy of an athlete because sex uses every muscle group, gets the heart and lungs working hard, and burns about 300 calories an hour."
Maybe that explains why the 23 year old Mick Jagger looks like he does. Anyway, if having sex for an hour burns 300 calories, Kelly Osbourne's boyfriend better put the coffee on because it is going to be a loooooooong few months.

Lucy, this is the first time I plan on forwarding your posts to my wife. Wish me luck, I plan on living to 100. Here is how I envision the conversation. "Please honey, Lucy said it's OK, No, she's not my girlfriend, she's just a friend from England, No, I've never met her, but she thinks we should have sex, no you and I. No, I don't know what she looks like, No, she's not a Doctor she writes a blog, NO, not that type of blog. No, I don't like her better than you. No I don't think you look fat, and I don't think Lucy does either Would you just get naked for God sakes, NO NO NO, she's not watching on the Webcam, get a hold of yourself women"

Maybe I'll just forward the link to the article instead.

That title alone is going to earn you rave hits, Miss Lucy.

Every so often some 'study' comes out with this. Sex would have to be VERY energetic to burn that many calories!

The Intolerant One said...

Good advice. Even it turned out to be false I will pass it on to the wife as scientific fact that we must adhere to immediatley :)

RaeJane said...

Someone do the math for me.. how many calories do you burn when you have sex for 3 minutes?

Cheezy said...

Depends how good those 3 minutes are, I reckon! :D

Great idea for a workout video, no?

Of course, as in most workouts, the biggest problem is in getting the proper equipment. In this case, the right partner.

But shopping for it would be fun.
