The sex positions that burn the most calories revealed – and ladies, it’s good news if you love reverse cowgirl 0 226

LET’S be honest – when we’re between the sheets with our partner, burning calories isn’t exactly at the forefront of our mind.

But if burning off that second slice of cake is a byproduct of some, ahem, quality time with our other half, then we’re all ears.

So what sex positions burn the most calories, you ask? GolfSupport.com gave Fitbits to 112 heterosexual couples and told them to wear it while doing the deed.

If you’re a lady who likes it on top then it’s good news for you, because the results revealed that women burn the most during The Squat –  188 calories to be specific.

But if you want to burn off more than just the chocolate bar you ate, you can ramp it up a notch by going faster and lose up to 224.

Why not try switching it up and going reverse instead. You’re bound to drop 137 calories while your bloke burns just 48.

If you consider yourself a pro in the bedroom then why not experiment with the Butter Churner position, which is certainly more advanced.

If you are brave enough to try it, you can lose approximately 179 in 30 minutes, while for men this position burns even more calories.

The Kneeling Wheelbarrow is not only fun, but it also burns loads of calories.

Women can lose approximately 149 calories in this position, while men will burn around 167.

Another one that favours the brave is the Standing position, which is the second most intense position for men.

Blokes can burn around 198 calories trying to have some fun while not dropping their partner – ouch.

Spooning 55%

Spooning and The Eagle are the positions burning the least calories for women, while men put the least effort in during Cowgirl and reverse Cowgirl.

The trusty missionary didn’t make the top 12 positions for women, but it comes close in number 13 with ladies losing about 47 calories per 30 minutes session.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 47

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 30

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
