Doctor Reveals How Many Calories You Burn During Sex

A doctor has revealed how many calories you burn after a steamy session (that lasts an hour):

Dr Faith Coats - who uses the TikTok handle @faithfuldoc - posted the clip days ago with the caption: "Surprising way to burn calories."

The video begins with the statement 'you burn 100 calories during one hour of sex,' before she goes on to explain that's false, adding 'it's more'.

Then the doctor wrote: "You burn 100 calories in 30 min. Go out and burn some calories... safely."


The video has been watched over 3.6 million times and has generated nearly 800,000 likes with over 18,000 comments and 54,000 shares.

Many of the comments were from people joking that sex doesn't usually last an hour. One wrote: "If the guy could last that long."

Someone else added: "You think all guys last more than 30 minutes? HAHAHAH," while another asked: "Even if you lay on your back through [sic] it all?" Hmmm... not too convinced.

When someone asked 'well how about 2 minutes?' The doctor replied to say that would probably 'get your heart racing'.

Many of the other comments were from TikTok users tagging their partners and asking if they fancied a workout. Bold.


Dr Coats took it upon herself to address people's suggestions that sex doesn't last long enough to burn 100 calories anyway. She filmed another video with the caption: "How long do men last in bed?"

Speaking to the camera, she said: "The comments on this video are hilarious. So let's do a little bit of research, shall we?

"Apparently the average time to orgasm is about six minutes but it ranges from six seconds to 53 minutes.

"The majority of men last between four to 11 minutes.

"Let's be real - the common cut off for the medical community to define premature ejaculation is about two minutes but you know, many men who deal with premature ejaculations have a hard time lasting past 30 seconds.

"This is actually normal because of the fact that men were meant to be quick triggers so we could have enough population on this planet or we'd have a really small planet. So I guess the next time you could always just blame it on science..."
