Khloé Kardashian Uses a "Sex Calculator" to Lose Weight — But Is That Actually a Thing?

Khloé Kardashian, potential future sister-in-law of Blac Chyna and possible kidnapping victim of Kris Jenner, enjoys counting. Counting calories, to be exact! Counting calories burned during sex, to be even more exact!

In a new post on her website, Kardashian wrote that she has assembled a research team to investigate her primary mathematical interest: the correlation between sexual positions and caloric expenditure. Says she:

I had my team put together a list of sex positions that burn the most calories, because what's more fun than getting down??? LOL.

Every mathematician has a favorite counting device. Some prefer the TI-83 graphing calculator, while others prefer something a little more basic. Khloé wrote in her note that she has recently discovered the perfect instrument for her current research interests.

I even found this "sex calculator" that tells you exactly how many calories are burned between the sheets based on your gender, weight, position, style ("slow," "frisky" or "fast and furious," haha) and time frame.

While Khloé didn't specify which mathematical device she used, there are a number of options available on the internet, such as the Sex Calculator app, which allegedly determines how many calories you burn between the sheets based on your gender, body type and how long your sexual encounter lasted. 

It's unclear, however, whether you can actually determine how much weight you've lost in a given boink session. Researchers who have previously dabbled in such areas have come up with varying conclusions.

A group of Canadian researchers once reported that men burn an average of 100 calories per sex session, while women burn an average of 69 (listen, that's the real number). Another study from the New England Journal of Medicine found that most people only last about six minutes and therefore burn around 21 calories per sex session, which, honestly, is probably the most honest/accurate takeaway in the history of academia.

"I doubt I've worked off the calories in a stick of Carefree gum," some might say to those unimpressive figures. (Although technically they would be wrong, since Carefree gum actually only has 5 calories per stick.)

Nevertheless, one may have reason to believe that Khloé Kardashian's sexual liaisons are more aerobically intense than most. Last month, Kardashian revealed that she has experienced weight loss in her vagina. Coincidence? Or the result of many late-night exercise sessions?
