London, UK (RPRN) 31/03/09- More and more individuals are joining adult dating sites to find sex buddies not only for the enjoyment of it, but also as a means to lose and maintain their weight, according to My-Fbuddy, a new upbeat and light hearted adult dating site.
Itâ€™s often said that casual sex is the best form of exercise and in fact, sexual intercourse can burn between 100 and 175 calories every time and having sex three times a week can burn as much as 27,300 calories per year. Thatâ€™s the equivalent of jogging approx 273 miles!
For people who arenâ€™t in relationships or indeed, donâ€™t want to be in relationships, having sex as much as three times a week often isnâ€™t possible. As a result many individuals are joining adult dating sites as a way to mix enjoyment and health.
Other ways in which nights of no strings fun can help people lose weight are:
KISSING: Kissing can burn around 120-325 calories an hour, or around 2-5 calories a minute. Engaging in long make-out sessions with your partner is not only good for your relationship; it is also good for your waistline. A 10 minute make-out session with your partner each morning and each evening could burn up to 100 calories a day. Thatâ€™s 36,500 calories a year, or just over 10 pounds worth of weight loss.
UNDRESSING: According to an Italian professor, even undressing can burn off calories. Unclasping a bra with two hands burns 8 calories, while unclasping it with only one hand burns up 18 calories. Unclasping it with your mouth can burn 87 calories.
Andy Hammonds, Founder of My-Fbuddy, commented: â€œIn todayâ€™s society thousands of people are simply obsessed with their weight and with sex being such a good form of exercise, they are now signing up to adult dating sites as a way to enjoy themselves but also to lose or maintain weight.â€
