Sex is not only an intimate interaction between two individuals, but also a great way to burn calories.

According to Laura Berman, PhD, LCSW, a clinical assistant professor of obstetrics-gynecology and psychiatry at the Feinberg School of Medicine of Northwestern University in Chicago, sex is a form of exercise, especially when the individuals spice it up with different positions. Additionally, the more sex you have, the more the brain releases feel good hormones such as endorphins. Endorphins are known as the "feel good" hormones, which can also signal you to stop eating. No matter your choice of position, always remember to engage in safe sex.
