I have heard many people equate sex with exercise, and since February is heart health month and Valentine's Day is a few days away, I thought I should quiz you to see if you know how sex affects your ticker.

So take this short but fun quiz and see just how much exercise you are really getting when getting it on.


Getting It On and Burning It Up: Sex and Calories

T/F: During the typical sexual encounter, the heart rate does not exceed 130 beats per minute during orgasm.
