Shun exercise, not sex, to burn extra kilos!

Toronto, Jan 9 (IANS) If having pleasure can help you stay healthy then what could be better than this! Scientists from the University of Quebec in Canada have found that sexual activities can be significantly effective in burning calories when compared to moderate intensity exercises. “It indicates that energy consumption during sexual activity appears to be nearly 85 kCal or 3.6 kCal/min and appears to be performed at a moderate intensity – 5.8 metabolic equivalent of task (MET) – in young healthy men and women,” said lead author Julie Frappier. During sex, the authors recorded 6.0 METS in men and 5.6 METS in women, which represents a ‘moderate intensity’ activity – roughly equivalent to cycling or playing doubles tennis, claimed the study.
