    Yes sex does burn calories. Although it is not a reliable form of exercise. It is not simple to track. It varies depending on position, duration, intensity, what time of month it is for the woman & the temp of the room.

    It may not be the traditional idea of exercise, but technically, it is. It takes physical motion, it gets your heart rate up and burns calories.

    It's listed as one of the exercises on the My Fitness Pal app, so it must count
