Like any exercise...: Like any other exercise, the amount of weight gained or lost that day depends on whether or not having sex causes a person to eat more or eat fewer calories than he burns off that day. So, eating a box of chocolates after sex would cause a lot of weight gain after a week of sex and 7 trips to the Godiva store. If there is no food intake related to sex, then sex as exercise may cause weight loss.

Yes : Sexual activity just like any physical activity will help you burn calories & potentially help you lose weight . Safe sexual practice is safe and not a concern if you do work out on daily basis .
