Sexercise with Miranda Kerr

A new website has pulled together some very scientific data to prove to us that sex is way better for you than all that boring working out. Health Status claims that, based on data from people weighing about 180 pounds (no comment), they found all this good stuff to be true:

1 hour of sex (lucky you!) equals 36 minutes of jogging

1 hour of sex (damn, you're on a roll) equals 74 minutes of strenuous weightlifting, which would probably kill you

1 hour of sex outfoxes 28 minutes of lame yoga or goofy skiing

1 hour of sex beats (try not to laugh) 28 minutes of packing a suitcase. Really? What is so difficult about packing?

1 hour of sex equals four hours of writing, which probably explains why bloggers never get laid. I hope.

1 hour of sex equals the ridiculous idea of 101 minutes of brushing your teeth. Unless you're from Britain, you don't need to brush for that long. (Joke!)

1 hour of sex is the same as 69 minutes of carrying around an infant. Try telling your spouse you need some 69 after carrying a baby all day.

These and more bizarre statistics can be read and laughed at courtesy of the Daily Beast.
