Original Starting post for this thread:
Burning love apparently does not equate to burning fat. A new study from the University of Alabama at Birmingham says the average sex act burns only about 21 calories.

The study, published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine, contradicts many long-standing claims that sexual activity is a vigorous, fat-burning workout. Funded in part by the National Institutes of Health, the study results found that “false and scientifically unsupported beliefs about obesity are pervasive in both scientific literature and the popular press.”

Most online claims about the calorie burning potential of sexual activity are based on one-hour increments, whereas this study worked off an average time span of six minutes per sexual encounter. ----------------------

SIX minutes?

"Very few people have intercourse per se [Latin for by thrust] that goes longer than 12 minutes,"

Wow. That's kinda sad...

If sex is good obviously it's preferable that it lasts longer than 12 minutes. But I never want to be in a position where I'm wondering when is he getting off!

OK - really?

I'm glad I don't know these "very few people".

I stopped reading after the word "coitus".

Anything else I read will be in the voice of Sheldon Cooper and thereby funny by default.

According to the new study "Canadian and American Sex Therapists' Perceptions of Normal and Abnormal Ejaculatory Latencies: How Long Should Intercourse Last?" adequate coitus lasts anywhere from three to seven minutes, not including the Pledge of Allegiance. This data, from all the normal people who see therapists for sexual problems, corresponds closely to earlier studies, which put the average at five to seven minutes. (We can safely blame the two-minute discrepancy on the Canadians.)

"Very few people have intercourse per se [Latin for by thrust] that goes longer than 12 minutes," says sex therapist Barry W. McCarthy.

Maybe it's an average over several partners? 10 partners @ 6 minutes each?

Maybe it's skewed towards Mormons?
