lose weightWe all want to look and feel as good as we possibly can, especially if we are planning on having sex that day. And while some of us may hate the gym there are certain sexy-time acts that will help you to shed calories while pleasing yourself and your partner.

So if you want to kill two birds with one stone, and shed some serious calories while getting it on, start incorporating a few of these sultry moves into your sex sessions to help shape up and tone up, while helping to keep him up.

Make Out Like High Schoolers

When you kick things off with a sensual, and frenzied, make out session with your partner you are kick starting your heart rate, making you breathe heavier, and ultimately helping you to burn some serious calories.

And while we all love a good calorie burn, you can really amp things up by making out in a hot room. Think hot yoga: the hotter the room, the sweatier you get, and the sweatier you get, the more calories you burn.

Change locations a few times, roll around, writhe against a wall, hold your partner’s hands down, or simulate the act of sex on top of them to really shed some sweat, and ultimately more calories.

If you keep this up for only 30 minutes you can burn up to 240 calories! And we haven’t even gotten to the dirty deed yet.

Go Down On Them

I can already feel some women rolling their eyes at me but it turns out that if you are on the giving end of oral sex, you can burn up to 100 calories in just 30 minutes. And while I know 30 minutes can seem like a long time to be doing the same act, you can really mix things up and burn even more calories by incorporating a few aerobic moves into your ‘performance’.

I know, I know, aerobic moves just sound way too complicated when pleasing your partner at the same time. But if you could work in a push up of some sort or even hold a plank position while servicing your man you will not only shed calories but you will also tone your entire core.

After all, these few little moves could help you lose an additional 70 calories, helping to make this sometimes tedious act a little more interesting.

Get On Top

While either person on top has fat burning advantages, having sex with the woman on top is a serious fat blaster.

Not only does it feel much better for us ladies, but your partner will love the view it gives him. On top of that (no pun intended) this position helps women to cut at least 144 calories in only a 30 minute headboard-knocking sack session. And that’s if you are simply rocking back and forth.

Turn around for reverse cowgirl and give yourself a toning and firming butt and thigh workout.

Or if you really want to amp things up, stay in reverse cowgirl position but sit over him in a deep squat and move up and down using your legs. This will firm up not only your legs but also your thighs, butt, and core. Not to mention your heart rate will skyrocket, helping you to melt fat off your body, while rocking his whole world.

Now I don’t know about you but this type of workout makes me going to the gym seem just that much more tedious and boring. So next time you are in the mood to feel the burn, dim the lights, throw on something sexy, and bump and grind your way to a fitter you. All while having some seriously sexy fun.

However, before we all get a little hot and bothered here thinking about our new sensuous workout, it should be mentioned that safety should always be one of your primary concerns. And if you are starting to become intimate with a new partner you should have a discussion about each of your sexual histories.

After all, the last thing you want is to have mind-blowing sex only to wake up a few weeks later with symptoms of genital herpes.

I know that sounds drastic and is kind of a downer, but it’s the reality of the world we live in and it’s always better to be safe than oh-so-sorry.
