Should I log sex as workout/exercise?

And how many calories does it burn? I'm actually really serious!!!!

I totally do if it was a great session. If I'm sweaty and utterly exhausted when it's over, of course it was a workout. If we were doing it missionary, and I spent half the night rocking my hips up off the bed- I consider that an ab workout. If he's seated, and I've got my back to him in a squat position- total leg work, above an beyond the cardio aspect of it :)

I find this thread offensive and think it should be removed. There are may teens on this site now. Just figure it out on your own. There are plenty of places to look up the calorie burn from intercourse.

Dear god, teens know plenty about sex, probably more than many adults on here. This thread is really not going to traumatize or corrupt them.

hehe, I think we should start a thread brainstorming ways to get the best workout out of *ahem* "the best way to workout" ;) I mean, why not try and double up on the benefits of sex? :)

From what i found for a 200 pound person having sex for half an hour burns about 400 calories.. i would totally count it as exercise!!!

You should wear a heart-rate monitor and see how many calories it burns to be most accurate. I don't know if I should try it... I bet my BF wouldn't be too thrilled ;)
