Does sex count as a workout? If so, how many calories do you stand to lose in bed? And how often should you take on this, um, “exercise?” In a rather conservative country like the Philippines, these are probably some questions we can categorize as things-you-always-wanted-to-know-but-are-afraid-to-ask. How about we save you the trouble and research this stuff for you? Yes, sex lets you burn calories; but the real question is how much? Experts say it really depends on the quality of sex you’re getting. According to health and fitness blogger Sarah Jio, every activity you take before, during, and after sex comes with its own set of calorie loss count. For instance, a full hour of passionate kissing lets you shed 68 calories. So in realistic terms, 10 minutes of kissing is equal to about 11 calories lost. Those who take the effort for a long foreplay are rewarded with more burned fats. Thirty minutes of romantic dance is equivalent to losing 103 calories. Passionate petting and necking burn a massive 238 calories per half hour. A half hour of oral sex delightfully obliterates 100 calories.  And finally, sex lets you burn 144 calories per 30 minutes. Just like any workout, a good post-coital cool down, like giving your partner a massage lets you lose 80 calories per half hour easy. Like running, sex favors (no pun intended) those who do the marathon than sprints. A routinary five minutes of kissing and 15 minutes of sex let you shed a measly 77 calories. A half cup of rice gives you 102 calories, just to give you a picture. In contrast, 30 minutes of romantic dance, followed by 30 minutes of make out session, then 30 minutes of oral sex, another 30 minutes of sex, and finishing everything off with a 30 minutes massage lets you shed 665 calories. An hour of light swimming session only lets you lose about 450 calories an hour. source : Philcare

Since the dawn of time, seemingly every male who has ever existed has been plagued by the same question: Does size matter? According to a new study from, the answer might just be not as much as you’d think — but it greatly depends on where you’re from. Based on data from 2,121 test subjects, the study hoped to discover what men and women believe the average penis length to be, as well as what they’d consider ideal. In their initial findings, they found that women believe the average penis size to be about 13.8 centimeters (5.4 inches), while men thought it would be about 14.1 centimeters (5.5 inches). (Neither were too far off from the actual average, which is 13.12 centimeters, or about 5.2 inches.) When it came to ideal size, however, both went with the logic that “bigger is better”: Women increased their estimate by 2 centimeters (0.7 inch), while men increased theirs by 2.5 centimeters (0.9 inch). They then decided to divide the data by country and found that perceived average and ideal penis size range drastically depending on location. Poland, for example, believes the average penis length to be 15.7 centimeters (6.1 inches) — almost an inch bigger than global estimates. Along with the United States, Austria, and Italy, Poland also had the highest standards for ideal length, each clocking in at 17 centimeters (about 6.7 inches) or higher. The United Kingdom, on the other hand, reported the lowest numbers for both, at 12.4 centimeters (4.8 inches) for perceived average length and 14.2 centimeters (5.5 inches) for ideal size. The study then went on to delve deeper into regional findings, including perceived average and ideal lengths by state. According to the study, Maine, Idaho, and Hawaii estimated the highest average length; and Nebraska, Arizona, and West Virginia estimated the lowest. When it came to ideal sizes, Maine, Kansas, and Arkansas reported the highest numbers; while New Mexico, Tennessee, and West Virginia reported the lowest. It’s worth noting that across the board, ideal lengths all skewed greater than perceived averages, but rarely by more than a couple centimeters. Of course, that size discrepancy is so minimal that it’s hard to imagination it’d make that much of a difference when it comes to sexual pleasure — which might help prove that the “bigger is better” mentality is exactly that: purely psychological. For the rest of the study, check it out at here. (c)
