This Week in Sex: Sexercises & Rebecca Romijn’s Hand Bra:

Is Sex a Good Physical Workout?

We’ve long heard that sex is a great way to burn some calories and get fit, but is this just wishful thinking? How much of a workout does one get from a tumble in the sheets?

Bad news: it turns out that the “average” duration of a lovemaking session is only six minutes, which isn’t long enough to get much of a health benefit. That said, if you get up to 20 or 30 minutes of solid action in the bedroom you can get a proper workout. If a solid half hour of passionate sex sounds exhausting, there are a number of ways you can build up your endurance.

Doing the deed first thing in the morning or eating the right foods are just two ways we can “optimize our sexercise.” See all the tips and techniques to firm up in the sack in this article by Dr. Jay Williams on Upwave.com.

Reinventing the Vibrator

Ethan Imboden, the founder of sex toy company JimmyJane, is on a mission to make vibrators “into a lifestyle accessory as commonplace as an electric toothbrush.” A former industrial designer, Imboden is using his skills to produce luxury products which are sleek, aesthetically pleasing and ergonomically pleasurable. Get the scoop on how “the Steve Jobs of sex toys” is shaking up the industry in this interview on AllThingsD.com.

Coffee or Sex?

Choosing between giving up coffee or giving up sex is a hypothetical situation too horrible to contemplate, but it’s this Sophie’s Choice that Le Meridien Hotels posed to almost 8,000 people in a survey spanning six countries.

A shocking 78 percent of those polled said they would take coffee over sex if they had to choose to drop one for an entire year. The survey also asked a number of other questions about caffeine and sex; read the rest of the results on Jezebel.com.

Rebecca Romijn’s Hand Bra

The “hand bra,” the infamous shot of a topless woman covering her breasts with her hands, revolutionized sexy fashion shoots by allowing famous women to get their tops off and still appear on newsstand covers. Model and actress Rebecca Romijn has often worn the hand bra for many great pics in her modeling career, and according to this video from FunnyorDie she’s using it to much satisfaction in her day-to-day life. In fact, Romijn now wants to bring the benefits of the hand bra to other women.

Naturally, we loved this bit because it stars a topless Rebecca Romijn holding her breasts, but it’s also full of solid laughs—Romijn has whip-smart comedic timing (a talent often underutilized in the roles she’s cast in) and here it shines as bright as her stunning looks.

More Than Half of Newlyweds Don’t Have Sex on their Wedding Night

Data from a new survey is showing that a little more than half (52%) of couples don’t consummate their marriage on their wedding night. The reasons why vary, but a major factor is too much drink. Out of those couples who didn’t rock the honeymoon suite, 24 percent of them stated it was because the groom was too drunk to perform. And 16 percent didn’t do the deed due to the bride being knackered. See the rest of the results of the survey at Dailymail.co.uk.
