How Many Calories Do You Burn During Sex?

On average guys burn 100 calories per session. Sadly, women only burn 69; the irony of that number strikes me a bit. This considers the average sex session to be around 25 minutes from start to end. It’s common sense that the longer the session, the more calories burned. Undressing, if done properly burns roughly 8 calories. Probably didn’t think about that one now did you? If you are looking for something a bit more fun, a researcher found that a guy who attempted to remove a bra with his mouth burned up to 80 calories. That’s pretty impressive. If you up the energy you put into undressing your partner, you can get in some extra calories.

If you really want to get a sizzling foreplay session on you can burn up to 238 calories per half-hour making out. Kissing is a calorie blaster which is something you might have already known. It gets your breathing up and is a great way to burn calories. However, if you’re just casually kissing for an hour, you only burn 68 calories. Opt for the more exciting choice.
