Yes, you read the title right! Sex counts as exercise not only because it is physical activity but also because it increases your heart rate, stretches your muscles with different positions, helping you with your strength and working your body.
There are all kinds of stretches and yoga poses you could do from downward dog, Kapotasana and a few other. Do not do these if you are not comfortable and cannot stretch this far.
You are working out most if not all of your muscles bouncing up and down, going in and got and changing positions. This can also allow you to burn calories while getting your pleasure on! Women typically burn 69 while males burn 101. Sometimes you can also burn from 100 to 300 calories while having sex for about 30 minutes.
Sex is extremely healthy for you so if you have a high sex drive then just go for it rather it be the whole thing or just a quickie to get you off til later.
The dirtier, the nastier, the longer the sex the better it is. If you just get tired of having plan ol' sex then spice it up with some toys, role play and whatever it is that you like!
Get your self all tangled up, hot and sweaty this can also help you sleep better at night. Having sex releases endorphins and dopamine that helps the body release stress and pain. This can help you relax and actually calm you down and make you calmer.
Sex is a great reliever to a lot of things so it is okay to have sex more than once a week since it does not do much harm to the body.
