Another Reason why Italian Women are so fantastic – They are in good shape!

A recent study found that 7 out of 10 Italian women believe that frequent sex is imperative to stay in shape. They prefer an hour with their man than eating grilled chicken and salad. The women have spoken, sex is not only fun but can help you get rid of a couple of extra pounds. The article, published by the magazine Dimagrire (lose weight), interviewed their readers between 20 and 45.

According to 74% of the women interviewed, sex is a major contributing factor to maintaining their weight, just as important as working out at the gym. Only 1 out of 10 thought that sex was not an important factor in any diet. It seems that Italian women are taking this very seriously and viewing sex as a physical routine capable of burning as many calories as any other workout. The result is very demanding women counting minutes and calories. They are scheduling longer workouts to increase the number of calories consumed.

Unfortunately for us mortal men, 64% of Italian women believe that changing partners increases the physical benefits. Let’s say it, losing weight with this workout regime can really be a pleasure.

The interview did not just limit themselves to superficial questions but went into great detail about activity and positions. The most efficient seems to be standing upright because it is the most difficult and uncomfortable. The parts of the body to receive the greatest benefit are the legs. For Italian Women it is not just about losing weight. The participants believe that having sex often increases muscular elasticity and reduces the signs of aging while eliminating problems of sleepless nights and stress.

The article finished throwing a bit of water on the popular beliefs about sex. Doctor Bruno Fabbri, of the center for sports medicine of Padova, explained that sex in the missionary position (I was a missionary but never had any sex…) burns about 600 calories an hour. He also indicated that the normal duration for European couples was 13 minutes and 50 seconds.

Italian women are passionate, feminine and interestingly aggressive. I am fine with this tendency. It takes my admiration of these goddesses to an entirely new level. I may not be up to the requirements of my goddess but am always happy to try…
