Many think that sex may replace physical activity since, you know, it requires lots of physical effort... But let's let the science answer this time.
There was actually a study on determining energy expenditure in kilocalories (kcal) during sexual activity.
The couples were then asked to engage in sexual activity at least once a week.
A month later, the scientists began to gather the data.
Briefly, only 5% of all participants reported that sexual activity was more strenuous when compared to the 30 min treadmill exercise.
But there are other dynamics to be counted.
However, both men and women reported that sexual activity was a highly enjoyable and more appreciated than the 30 min exercise session on the treadmill.
Not to forget that sexual activity is an important and relevant activity to human life and appears to impact on the mental, physical, and social health as well as on the quality of life of the individual.
