Are you ever caught up in a romantic moment with your significant other and then plagued by the realization that you have no idea how many calories you'll burn if you do Missionary vs. The Bridge? It's cool, Khloé Kardashian and her "sex calculator (opens in new tab)" are here to help.
"I had my team put together a list of sex positions that burn the most calories, because what's more fun than getting down???" she mused on her app. "LOL."
The entrepreneur calculated how many calories an average woman burns based on gender, weight, and speed ("fast and furious" is an option, FYI), and analyzed the health benefits of several positions.
Missionary: 40 calories. By the way Khloé is "not a missionary girl" and does not "belong in a missionary." Noted.
Doggy Style: 50 calories. Khloé points out that this position is a "really great workout for your abs and arms."
Reverse Cowgirl: 75 calories. Please keep in mind that "it'll give your core a hardcore workout."
Head to Khloé's website to see results for The Bridge, Lotus and other positions, some of which might inspire you to skip the gym in favor of sex. (Honestly, any excuse not to be on an elliptical.)
