"Weight loss: Yes, you may have read those women's magazine articles about how being physically intimate can help you shed pounds. However, a 120-pound woman burns only 57 calories during 15 minutes of sex. That's less than half a Hostess Ho-Ho. The sweat could do nice things for your skin, but your waist will remain the same size."

Talk about your disappointment.

    I'm a cup half full person. Every little calorie burn helps. And 15 minutes? Maybe I'm doing something wrong because that seems like an awful short period of time. If you keep your heart rate accelerated for a longer period of time, maybe burn more calories???? Hope of hopes.
