    I have seen this come up before - a lot of people said they just list it as walking the dog. I guess so they aren't embarrassed if their diary is open.

    Ive known of people to list it as wrestling lol

    It's not really a workout. I mean, sometimes I go for a bike ride because the sun is out and the wind feels good on my face; other times I go out because I'm trying to beat my fastest time on a 40 km course. Now I don't know about you but for me, sex is pleasant and enjoyable, but doesn't have any specific performance goals. I mean, as far as I know, nobody makes a sensor that measures your thrust rate per minute like people do with running cadence.

    I think in theory this is probably supposed to be part of your general activity level. I doubt most people fill out their MFP profile and say "Well I bump uglies five times a week so that means I'm not sedentary."

    Also, I think the way most people who aren't me do it, it's really not that much of a workout anyway. I've heard some horror stories.

    For some it's a quick sprint and not a marathon to be considered a workout...lol

    I've heard a lot of euphemisms for it, but that's a new one. :)

    Now that I read it, it sounds a bit "mood killer" and creepish, a lot of folks went right to the moment for data, I was kinda thinking the after thought of the act

    Do you pump full out for an hour without a break or slowing down? Because that would be at most 300 calories. It's counted in your TDEE. This question has been asked many times before,

    Because wearing a HRM during sexytimes is not particular sexy. Unless it's leather.

    "Indoor cardio."

    Well, sometimes outdoor cardio. Maybe it's a "lap" in the hike.

    It's part of your normal daily activity level. Or did you add this as purposeful exercise when you began to lose weight?

    In my single days, I should have been asking the ladies if they'd like to help me do something about the obesity epidemic. What a missed opportunity!

    Because according to a study, the average length of sex is 5.4 minutes. That's hardly worth recording. Just consider it a bonus.

    If I were on top and we banged for two straight hours, I STILL wouldn't burn as many calories as I do during a five mile jog.

    For everyone who really, REALLY needs to know how many calories you're burning during sex, here you go:

    Because it's included in the concept of NEAT for sedentary people.
