What are the Best Sex Positions to Lose Weight?

Everybody will agree that sex is a kind of exercise, maybe the most desirable one for all of us. In fact, the advantages of having sex are very similar to sports activities: your immune system is enhanced, so you barely get sick. Also, sex reduces anxiety and stress, wherewith it is great to start or end the day with sexual activities to be always with a smile on your face.

Among other advantages, you will burn calories as long as your session lasts, and this may not be good news for those who last longer in bed, as a recent showed that men with higher BMI could last longer than the average. So, burning calories might affect this skill.

Another study about energy expenditure during sexual activity showed that men burn 101 Kcal when performing sex during a session of 30 minutes at a moderate intensity, and women burn a bit less than men: 69.1 Kcal.

This evidence shows us that the sex sessions which are performed at a higher intensity might be better to burn calories (and in my opinion, they are better than anything else). Your sex sessions might become workout sessions if you do the following positions to burn even more calories.

Squats on top of you partner

Squats are one of the best exercises you can practice to shape your body and burn calories at the same time. When you perform them, you build your leg muscles, but also you gain strength in your upper body. For women, squats need to be a must to tone up their hips, thighs and glutes, so a great sex session with their partner can be a smart opportunity for them.

Maybe you are wondering how you can perform squats while having sex. Well, this posture is for women, as they have to be on top of her partner, supporting her weight with her legs on each side of her partner’s hips. When moving up and down, she will feel that she is working her thighs intensely, but at the same time, this posture will give her a lot of pleasure, as the penetration will be deeper.

If you are a person of 132 lbs WHO performs squats during 15 minutes, you will burn 230 calories. But maybe you can not keep this posture all this time or this is not your weight, so you can calculate the calories by multiplying your weight by 0.096. Then, you need to multiply the result by the minutes you perform this position, and you will have the burned calories.

Doggy Style, the sexiest exercise

The doggy style is one of the most popular positions when having sex, and there are a lot of ways to perform it. You will burn more calories in this option where you have to support your body on hands and knees.

In this position, you have to press your body over the surface, as you will feel the strength in your arms, shoulders and thighs. Also, you can burn extra calories by moving your body forwards and backwards while your partner is behind you.

However, your partner will also burn calories, as they have to stand up or on their knees or feet. It’s not a passive posture like others.

Stand up and move together

The nature of the human being’s anatomy has been designed to be standing and moving for a long time. So, why don’t you try to have sex with your partner while standing up? You will see that it is more intense than other positions like the missionary one, and you will find lots of ways to perform it.

Carrying your partner with your arms is one of these options. You have to be strong, or you can help yourself by supporting their weight with a wall behind them, or a surface where they can hold themselves on their hands.

If you are 150 pounds, just standing up will make you burn about 114 calories every hour. But if you do any activity or exercise while standing up, your burned calories will increase. And if you want more, check others positions like The Bridge and try to include some of them in your sex routine.

Finally, you need to remember that sex is more than numbers. You won’t worry about calories if you and your partner are horny. In fact, this may be the last thing that will come into your head.

However, these tips are great for those who look for an intense sex activity with their partner. So, we will be glad to know which of these positions is your favourite for your moments of satisfaction.
