In the early 1950s , the couple asked to strap on the monitor, blood pressure cuff , oxygen masks and other supplies and copulate , scientifically measure the effect of sex . The emphasis is often on whether sex can kill you with the deposition of a heart attack . Fortunately , this research generally shows that heart rate increased during intercourse , but sensible . In a study in 2008, the heart rate the subjects’ midlife jump to the point of orgasm with only 21 pulses per minute in men and 19 in women , about the same response as if she’d just do some jumping jacks . Heart attack risk in relation to sex is actually negligible, statistics show , but I could point out of wedlock greater action .
Sex Problems as athletic , but still largely unexplored . “Some of these myths , ” including that sex burns at least 100 calories per session , says Antony D. Karelis , a professor of exercise science at the University of Quebec in Montreal , which conducts research , published in PLoS One in October , to see how much force is actually done while having sex . ” But no one tested ” assumptions .
To do this Karelis and his colleagues recruited 21 young heterosexual couples commit their district and jogging on the treadmill for 30 minutes while researchers monitored their energy production and other statistics , to provide a comparison of the physical demands of sex . The following scientists gave volunteers they do not interfere with the monitoring bracelet measuring disability in terms of calories and METs , or metabolic equivalent tasks, physiological measurements to compare the activity of sitting idle, which is the first task – MET . When the scientists send cattle home , instructed to complete the action for a month while wearing the ring , and fill out a questionnaire about how each session they feel , physically and mentally , especially at least one sex per week compared to those running on the treadmill .
When the researchers analyzed all the data generated , it is clear , Karelis say that sex qualifies as ” moderate exercise , ” activity 6 – MET activity for men and 5.6 – MET for women . That corresponds , according to various estimates , from playing tennis or walking uphill double . Jogging , by comparison , more weight , activity 8.5 – MET for men in this study and 8.4 for women. ( . Though some men , according to monitoring their activity , using more energy for short time sex than they do jogging ) sex also burn four calories per minute for men and three for women per minute , for a session ranges 10-57 minutes , including foreplay. ( The average is 25 minutes. ) Men burns about 9 calories per minute jogging and women around 7 .
Overall, the data showed that ” sex can be considered , at times , essential training , ” said Karelis fit on the specified drive failed to work . In Ninety- eight percent of volunteers Karelis reported that sex feels better than jogging . The remaining 2 percent , I think, will be back on the dating market right away.
