In young people, sex burns an average of 4.2 calories a minute for men and 3.1 calories a minute for women. That is considered moderate intensity, which means that sex is better exercise than a walk, but not quite as good as a jog.
A popular myth says that a typical session of sex burns between 100 and 300 calories, but no one has measured the calories burned.
Couples wore an armband called SenseWear and researchers tracked their energy as they had sex in their homes. They were told to have sex four times over the course of the next month while wearing the sensors.
The recorded sex sessions lasted for an average of 24.7 minutes, with the shortest lasting 10 minutes and the longest stretching out over 57 minutes. Men expended more energy getting busy than women. On average, a sexual encounter cost men 101 calories, or 4.2 calories per minute. That's compared with 276 calories, or 9.2 per minute, on the treadmill.
Women used an average of 69 calories during a session of sex, averaging 3.1 calories per minute.
