Lose Weight and Have Fun: How Many Calories Does Masturbating Burn and Other Fun Facts

Love makes the world go round as a famous song goes…

One of the very best ways to show love is through intimacy with your significant other. This could be through kissing, smooching, hugging and sex itself.

We have heard time and again that showing your affection through mere hugging can make anyone feel loved, warmed and relaxed. How about getting under the sheets where lovers really get to express their love and desires to each other?

In this article, we want to detail various expressions of emotions through body contact. We will also look at the many benefits to your health and wellbeing.

How Many Calories are Burned Through Kissing?

Studies say that a quick and simple kiss can expend about 3 to 5 calories. Some say 70 calories can be burned in an hour while others will plainly label kissing as nothing other than a plain expression of affection which does not deliver any calorie loss.

There are reports, too, that kissing releases the love hormone oxytocin. This hormone creates bonding and excitement that regularly leads to making love. It is also proven that the bacteria in saliva can actually kill some viruses in a partner’s mouth.

Engaging in kissing can relieve stress through the production of the happy hormones dopamine and endorphins. It can also lower blood pressure and pain due to the dilation of blood vessels caused by it. Moreover, kissing can also help tone the facial muscles through constant lip locking and it not only boosts the immune system but your self-confidence as well.

How Does Undressing Each Other Help?

No matter how urgently you feel the need to make love, never undress each other in a hurry for this limits the romance brought about by intimacy. As much as possible, include slowly undressing your partner as part of foreplay.

Look into each other’s eyes as you do this. This will make both of you feel wanted and loved and not simply a sex object.

Very few know that merely undressing can also burn anywhere from 8 to 60 calories each time it’s done. You could explore other fantasies while removing each other’s clothes like asking your man to remove your underwear with his teeth and tongue. Be inventive.

Just by slowly undressing, the thrill and anticipation of getting naked afterwards can further heat up the moment and it helps to shift unwanted calories in the process.

Does Giving a Massage Help With Fat Loss?

Believe it or not, giving each other a massage can actually work wonders for a couple. It not only burns fats but can also lead to very pleasurable sex. Some couples give massages as a form of foreplay and this doesn’t just relax them but also tends to arouse their sexual desires all the more.

The simple rubbing of oil or lotion onto the body is titillating in and of itself. The giver is the one who benefits more because they are the ones who do the hard work of physically massaging their partner. Usually, an hour massage gives at least a 290-calorie burn. But, since the real aim here is how to have glorious sex while losing fats thanks to massage, we are pretty sure it won’t take that long!

So, assuming you give a maximum 10-minute massage, from 290 calories an hour you will burn 48.3 calories in just 10 minutes. Now, that is an awesomely good figure!

Is Masturbating Useful Too?

We all know that masturbation, although not actual sex itself, still involves a lot of handwork and movements, especially in men.

And, as you move, you also imitate the actual deed itself. Constant movements until you climax make the muscles tired and the body hot. As you sweat, fats automatically burn too.

According to research, frequent masturbation helps prevent prostate cancer as little or no sexual intercourse can tend to lead to this disease. This routine also increases sperm motility and your ability to “stand” longer and harder.

In women, 5 calories are burned in 2 minutes using a vibrator and 5 without it. And, what do you know, it’s a whopping 100 calories lost for men in just 5 minutes.

By going through with this sexual act, you could lose anywhere from 6 to 300 calories a day. Moreover, masturbation also relieves stress and anxiety while you can absolutely guarantee sexual pleasure on your own. You can even lessen your chances of contracting STD’s or HIV/AIDS by not hooking up with a stranger whenever you feel a sexual urge.

Sexy, Romantic Dancing

It is a proven fact that a little slow dancing paired with a lot of cuddling and smooching burns up about 100 to 170 calories in 20 to 30 minutes as it stimulates the love hormone while you are gliding and gyrating skin to skin.

It won’t hurt a bit to try a little strip tease or pole dancing with your partner to get both of you in the mood.

Oral Sex

Kissing is almost the same as oral sex for the simple reason that this type of sexual play also uses the mouth and tongue but with added work and energy as you try to pleasure each other. Using the mouth and tongue instead gives the same enjoyment as the normal method of sex does.

Studies show that at least 100 calories are burned whenever oral sex is carried out, most especially in women. This amount is equivalent to doing yoga or biking for 20 minutes.

Actual Sex

After all the kissing and snuggling and foreplay, it always culminates in having sex.

With all the above-mentioned calorie burning even before the deed itself, anyone is assured of losing unwanted fats in the body. To maintain this weight loss, though, you should have scheduled sex at least 3 times a week.

How many calories are lost in performing the real act of love making then? Well, it depends on how many times you do it but at least we already have a vision of what benefits this can give to our bodies.

With all of these foreplays, the heart muscles are always the prime focus of the workout. And we have already heard time and again that sex is great exercise for the heart. This is true if your heart is in good condition so don’t overdo it if you have any kind of cardiac problems.

Important Note: It doesn’t mean people with heart issues can never make love again. There are simply limits to how long somebody with heart complaints can have sex. It’s wise to consult your doctor if you’re in any doubt.

Here are some notes on different sexual positions and the calories each can help you to use…

  • Doggie Style: This position can burn away 24 calories in just 5 minutes
  • The ever-famous missionary position: Gets rid of 250 calories in 10 minutes
  • Standing: This is hard work but even more exciting. You’ll see off 300 calories each if you make love standing up. Get a full body workout while having fun at the same time!
  • Woman on top: The pressure of work is on the woman here but that doesn’t mean the guy won’t benefit from the heat of the moment in which 900 calories are burned for the woman and 390 for men in a 30 minutes romp

A Quickie

Quickie sex is carried out in haste without any foreplay or what-have-you. As quickly as it can be all over, a couple can lose up to 240 calories apiece in just 30 minutes. Sometimes less is more!

In closing, whatever types of intimacy you want with your loved one and however quick it might be, the bottom line is always to make your partner feel happy and loved with the combination benefit of losing unnecessary fats in your bodies.

Now isn’t that a very welcoming treat? You don’t even need to hit the gym at all!

Happy adventuring under the sheets!
