Is Sex Exercise?

Posted by Aaron W. On 6/09/2011
From Harvard Men's Health Watch:

At some time in his life, nearly every man gets exercised about sex. And as many men get older, they wonder if sex is a good form of exercise or if it's too strenuous for the heart. These questions may sound like locker room banter, but they are actually quite important — and they now have solid scientific answers.
♥ Sex
  1. Treadmill vs. Mattress - the treadmill won.  During sex, the men in the research (avg age 55) raised their heart rate only 72% as high as a treadmill workout.  The women in the research basically yawned during the experiment.
  2. Sex as Exercise - A man's heart rate rarely gets above 130 beats per minute with systolic blood pressure rarely exceeding 170.  The research suggested that a bout of ping pong in your man cave uses as much oxygen consumption (METS) as sex.  Their conclusion: if you can walk up 3 flights of stairs without difficulty, you are safe for sex.
  3. Sex as Sex - Fewer than 1/100 heart attacks and 1/200 fatal arrhythmias is sex-related.  Overall, a healthy 50-year old man's risk of a heart attack during sex is 2 in a million.
  4. Sex and Survival - Sorry, sex itself can not be proven to be protective to the heart.  However, Harvard suggests that the positive findings in several studies probably has more to do general life satisfaction... which probably leads to better sex.
  5. Viagra? - Apparently, 70% of men with erectile dysfunction respond to ED pills.  As the commercials say: men taking nitrates in any form should NOT use ED pills.  There are other ways...seriously.
  6. Safe Sex - Avoiding tobacco, exercising regularly, eating healthy, staying lean, and avoiding too much alcohol is the best way to keep sex safe.  That and a prophylactic.
