Does releasing sperm make you lose weight? I’m a really skinny guy and some of my friends taunt me by saying “you must be having sex on a daily basis because of your weight.” But is that actually true?
Well, we all have to agree that sperm is made primary of water and protein, and protein is made up of amino acids, which are the building blocks of body cells.
Therefore releasing sperm means you’re losing some amount of water and proteins as well which may lead to weight loss especially when practiced more frequently.
Haven’t you noticed that when you have sex, there is high tendency that you may sweat? In fact having “quality sex” may translate to workout or an exercise.
Also, let’s consider what science has to say. How many calories do you burn during sex?
When it comes to intercourse, women can burn 69 calories per session (including foreplay) according to a small 2013 study of young, healthy couples who spent 25 minutes having sex.
The study also states that heart rate, oxygen consumption, and blood pressure were higher with orgasm, so finishing is equivalent to slightly more of a workout.
By comparison, the study also tested the participant’s calorie burn after running on a treadmill for 30 minutes, and women tended to burn about 213 calories, so yeah, running is obviously much more of a workout in a similar time frame.
Most couples probably aren’t having sex for half an hour either. A study from The New England Journal of Medicine found that most sex sessions last only about 6 minutes, so the average calorie burn might be only about 21 in that time.
And since that figure refers to men, who may do more of the calorie-burning thrusting in straight, missionary-position sex, the study authors suggest that one round of sex might burn closer to 14 calories for straight women, on average.
Luckily, there’s plenty you can do to make sex last longer, if you aren’t in the mood for a quickie.
To up the fun and burn more calories when it comes to sex, try getting on top of your partner, Dr. OReilly says.
Reason because in most positions, being on top requires a bit more movement and will increase calorie burn.
Changing up your positions throughout a sex session can also make it more of a workout, she says.
In fact, men burn 100 calories during the average sex session, which lasts about 25 minutes, according to research from the University of Montreal.
“The level of intensity that is exerted from sexual activity could be higher than that of walking at 3 miles per hour but less than that of jogging at 5 miles per hour,” the researchers write in the study, which was published in the journal PLOS ONE.
Even better: The longer you do it, the more calories you burn.
Also, partnered sex is going to burn more calories than masturbating, because it typically involves more pumping and rolling movements and lasts longer.
But reaching orgasm on your own will still release the hormone endorphins and the feel-good hormone oxytocin, just like finishing your last set at the gym would.
However, releasing sperm can make you lose weight, but on the other hand, being skinny does not actually mean the guy is a sex addict.
Some people always appear skinny despite the amount or type of diet they eat or how regular they have sex.
