Exercise burns more calories than sex

According to a recent study by Canadian researchers, more calories are burned during exercise than during sex. Men each have a higher energy consumption.

Love act in your own four walls According to a current study, significantly fewer calories are burned during sex than during sporting activities. This was the result of a study by the University of Québec in Montreal, Canada. The subjects had to jog for half an hour at moderate pace. And as study author Antony Karelis explained, the participants were allowed to perform the act of love in their own four walls because "the couples feel more comfortable there." In both cases, the participants were equipped with a fitness measuring device.

Men consume more than women Then the effort compared with which the energy consumption was higher. The men burned an average of 276 calories, or 9.2 calories per minute, during the 30-minute run. However, the consumption among women was only 213 calories. In contrast, the values ​​were significantly lower for sex lasting around 25 minutes. The men burned an average of 101 calories, i.e. 4.2 calories per minute. The energy consumption of women was even lower, they only consumed 69 calories in the act of love.

No explanation for the differences The researchers have no explanation for the generally lower energy consumption of women. Karelis speculated that this may simply be due to the increased weight of the men. For the study, he and his colleagues examined a total of 21 heterosexual couples between the ages of 18 and 35.
