A spokesperson for Total Shape commented on the findings: “Discussions around sex and the habits during the activity vary enormously from country to country and person to person. Having sex with a partner brings many benefits on top of burning calories, such as improving blood circulation, producing endorphins and boosting mood. It’s important to note the number of calories burned during sex varies widely from one session to another as different positions and how fast-paced the session is can burn a different number of calories.

“The research may surprise some to see which countries are burning the most calories on average during sex, but it’s a great piece of information to gain more insight into sex across the world and highlight how it can bring similar mood and physical benefits to exercise. It’s worth noting if you are looking to maximise the calorie burn during sex, then having a healthy diet and taking vitamins can be a great suggestion to help you last longer in bed. Vitamins such as Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B3, and Vitamin B9 can all aid in boosting a healthy sex life.”
