Sex is awesome.
Sex is empowering.
Sex is hot.
Sex is….good for you?
We all know that a good romp in the sack feels good (great, wonderful, orgaaaaasmic), but now there is an even better reason to strip off the clothes and hop into bed: losing weight.
According to Kerry McCloskey, author of The Ultimate Sex Diet, doing the naughty is the newest – and most pleasurable – way to shed those extra pounds. So instead of ditching your man to make that 6:00 Pilates class, you can stay home, get into bed and have yourselves some good old fashion passion.
Don’t believe it? Well, according to McCloskey, a half hour of sex can burn anywhere from 150 to 350 calories depending on your level of friskiness. That is the same amount of calories you would burn running on the treadmill for 30 minutes! And as much fun as running in place is, I would much prefer sweating with my man.
Even better, sex can also help you tone those not-so-firm body parts, reduce your risk of disease and make you an all around healthier person.
Feeling a little self conscious about your thighs? Why not try the Crouching Tiger, Aroused Dragon? Simply squat above your man (think, catcher’s position) and rest your arms on your favorite spot on his body for support. This will work your thighs while also giving your boy better access to your G-Spot. Not only will you tone those thigh muscles, but you will also enjoy yourself. A lot.
If you want to tone your tummy, the Humpty Bumpty is the way to go. This unique position forces you to use your stomach muscles to support your weight. You will never have to do crunches again.
And it gets even better. Seriously, this is the best thing to happen to dieting since….well, ever. I mean, dieting is not fun. Counting the calories, watching your skinny friends eat cake and crying cuz you can’t. But now, now dieting can be fun for everyone. In fact, I think I am going to find someone to diet with right now.
