    Cheating sex burns more calories. All that guilt and worrying really burns the fat.

    sex is exercise, definitely. As long as you are active during sex. If you just lay there then you really aren't burning that many calories.

    I don't think of it as excerise but I read somewhere a couple months ago that half an hour of sex a couple times a week is actually fairly effective cardio.

    From WebMD

    Thirty minutes of sex burns 85 calories or more. It may not sound like much, but it adds up: 42 half-hour sessions will burn 3,570 calories, more than enough to lose a pound. Doubling up, you could drop that pound in 21 hour-long sessions.

    "Sex is a great mode of exercise," says Patti Britton, PhD, a Los Angeles sexologist and president of the American Association of Sexuality Educators and Therapists. It takes work, from both a physical and psychological perspective, to do it well, she says.

    Sure! We get pretty active. If you need to have a cold drink waiting for after and you're so out of breath and sore (exercise sore), then you might as well have been at the gym or out running. Not only do you get cardio, you get plenty of muscle work, too. ;)

    I read in fitness magazine that it does..... Now i think it depends on weather or not you are moving your body and get sweaty. or are you just laying their and letting the hubby do all the work then he is burning more calories.
