Ponder How much sex is considered exercise?

We hear all the time that sex is a great workout, but what are the hard facts? How much sex is considered exercise? On a scale from fast asleep to Brangelina, where does the average sexual encounter lie on the calorie-burning scale?

It's supposed to be exercise? Oh. That's why she bought the whistle.

For married men, it's not the sex that burns the calories its the prerequisite house work and errand running that does it.

Realtalk, when I got into my first longterm sexual relationship I lost a whole heap of weight to the point where everyone was commenting on it. The rest of my lifestyle (eating, general exercise) was pretty much exactly the same as before.
Yeah that was a fun new hobby.
