Between The Sheets – Sex Workout Playlist

After a long day at work, you’re most likely ready to relax at home with your special someone – but you may feel as if you should hit the gym instead. Why not combine what you want to do with what you feel you should do? Be efficient and make your workout an intimate one. Sex qualifies as exercise and can burn a significant amount of calories.

The sex workout playlist I created below is geared for those of you who want to share a workout at home with your loved one. It has all the right songs to set the mood. Just light some candles, play these sexy jams and make the workout last as long as you want it to.

Benefits of sex

Having sex regularly can do more than make you feel closer to your partner – it qualifies as exercise and can contribute to your overall physical health. Sexual activity:

  • Lowers stress
  • Decreases risk of heart disease
  • Increases levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA), an antibody that improves the immune system
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Improves sleep
  • Reduces pain

…and burns calories!

Sex IS exercise

To validate that sex qualifies as exercise, a 2013 study published in the Public Library Of Science Journal (Plos ONE) concluded that sexual activity may be considered, at times, as a significant form of moderate intensity (5.8 METS) exercise. The results of this sex study showed that among healthy men and women (age: 22.6 ± 2.8 years old):

  • The mean energy expenditure during sexual activity for men =
    • 101 kcal (same as 101 dietary calories), or 4.2 kcal/min
  • The mean energy expenditure during sexual activity for women =
    • 69.1 kcal (same as 69.1 dietary calories), or 3.1 kcal/min

…indicating that energy expenditure during sexual activity is approximately 85 kcal, or 3.6 kcal/min – a little more than the amount of dietary calories in a standard chicken egg (which is about 78 calories).

    Hmmm, my only complaint with this list is that I see Sade did not make the cut. Sacrilege darling.

    I highly recommend “love is found” and “soldier of love”. 😉

    1. 🙂 So funny – I WAS going to put Sade on – but I hit a musical impasse while deciding which song of hers to choose. Shame on me for making this error. I have remedied this by adding BOTH of your recommendations to the list. Thanks!! :):)
