How many calories are burned from sex?  I got the answer for you!  This has been an old wives tale for some time and it’s important to clear it up once and for all.  Many tend to believe they’ve gotten theirexercise in for the day when they’ve done the deed.  But the truth is, having sex only burns about 5 calories a minute, according to Dr. Lauren Streicher, an OB-GYN and author of ‘Love Sex Again.’

“I wish it was true too”, says Streicher, adding, “Most people only have sex for maybe 10 or 15 minutes, so it’s about the same number of calories you’re going to burn going up a couple flights of stairs.”  Although you won’t get super fit from having sex, burning any calories is better than none at all so don’t fret, just enjoy your time between the sheets!
