Sex or Exercise: Which Is Better?

Which Would You Rather Give Up For a Month — Sex or Exercise?

The annual Bicycling Readers' Choice survey is out, and after reading through it, one statistic stood out to me: 58 percent of female respondents would choose cycling over sex, if they had to give up one or the other for a month. Men were split down the middle, with 50 percent responding that they would choose cycling over sex.

I admit, I am pretty shocked at this statistic — Bicycling's readership are a passionate group of cyclists! It made me wonder, if forced to choose, how many fitness devotees would do the same if they had to pick between exercise or sex for a month. When you think about it, a good amount of the benefits from each activity are identical: stress relief, improved heart health, and better sleep, to name a few.

Since I ride a bike for transportation and not exercise I'd give up exercise.

Nah! Exercise... For me sex is worth it. Plus it can be a workout too!

Sex - only because getting back into it would be a lot easier (and a LOT more fun) than getting back into exercise after a month of inactivity. ;)
