SEX is often described as a great workout, but could it actually help you lose weight?

Doing the deed does indeed burn calories, though it might not be the quality cardio you think it is.

How many calories does sex burn?

The amount of calories you burn during sex obviously depends on a few factors.

The sex position you choose, how long it lasts and how active you are will have a pronounced effect on how many you’re burning off.

A 2013 study scientists at the University of Montreal found that men burn considerably more calories than women during sex.

Their results – published in journal PLOS ONE – found that, on average, men burn 100 calories on average, while for women it’s 69.

It was estimated that men burn around 4.2 calories during a bonking session, with 3.1 for women.

This may be because men may be more physically active during sex, but it’s mainly because men weigh more, and so their energy expenditure is higher, even for the same amount of exercise.

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 41

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
