Ready to celebrate Valentine’s Day? The Sexercise Calculator shows you the most calorie-burning lovemaking positions, from vigorous “butter churning” to more relaxed “spooning.”
- The best calorie-burning sex positions can be easily calculated with a new tool
- British company FROM MARS created a calculator using sex research
- A butter churn can burn the most energy, using about 100 calories in 15 minutes.
- But the laid-back “cowgirl” consumes only a measly 20 calories per session.
The new Sex Exercise Calculator shows you which positions will burn the most calories during your Valentine’s Day heatwave.
The calculator calculates the best between-the-sheet workouts by taking the number of minutes spent in common sex positions and multiplying that by the number of calories burned in each position.
Curious amateurs can calculate their potential energy expenditure in 12 different positions, including the ambitious “churn”, “squat” and “lap wheelbarrow”.
According to the British company FROM MARS, which created the calculator, the possible energy consumption varies greatly depending on which position you choose in the bedroom (or anywhere else).
Those who enjoy a steamy romp this Valentine’s Day can also burn a lot of energy, according to a calculator that calculates which positions burn the most calories.
According to the calculator, which ranks the churn as the most energetic position for men, spooning burns only about 51 calories in 15 minutes of sex.
The biggest burner is the churn, which can burn about 211 calories in 30 minutes of sex, which is the equivalent of seven calories per minute.
The position takes its name from the churn, an old-fashioned device with a whipping tool that sits above and plunges into the butter to soften it.
Described as a position for those “dared enough to try,” this maneuver, also known as the “crouching pusher,” involves a woman lying on her back with her legs raised above and behind her head, with a man penetrating her. above.
Another option that requires a lot of energy is standing, which burns 6.6 calories per minute of sex.
FROM MARS has created a calculator showing how many calories you can burn by having sex in different positions. These calculations show the energy consumption for a 15-minute fuss.
However, as FROM MARS points out, this position has one of the lowest orgasm rates among women, at just 17 percent.
Unfortunately, the pose that burns the least calories is the cowgirl pose, which only burns about 1.3 calories per minute, or 39 calories every 30 minutes.
Canine styles come in third, burning 182 calories in men in 30 minutes of activity. Women burn about 103 calories at the same time.

As a major bonus, studies have shown that doggystyle is the position in which the majority of women experience orgasm (79%).
Although the calculator shows men how many calories they can burn, it is based on previous studies that have found how much energy men and women expend during sex.
A study based on a survey of 112 couples with Fitbits found that the squat position was the most effective for women when it comes to calorie usage, burning 188 calories in half an hour.
Then came the “churn,” which is almost as energizing for women as it is for men, with a possible burn of about 179 calories in half an hour.
Meanwhile, the “lap car” ranks third among women, burning approximately 149 and 167 calories, respectively.
