Debate Rounds (5)
1.activity requiring physical effort, carried out especially to sustain or improve health and fitness:
"exercise improves your heart and lung power"
synonyms: physical activity " a workout " working out " gymnastics " sports
According to the definition of exercise: Exercise is carried out especially to sustain or improve health and fitness
Sex is Not carried out to sustain or improve health and fitness so, sex can not be considered exercise.
1.an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment:
"team sports such as baseball and soccer"
synonyms: (competitive) game(s) " physical recreation " physical activity
Sex is also not a competition for entertainment either.
Sex should not be categorized as a sport/exercise just because you can burn calories.
Normal breathing requires the diaphragm to move and you burn calories. However, that does not make it a sport or an exercise.
1.activity requiring physical effort,'
Sex requires physical effort, since the man must move his pelvis back and forth so his penis can rub against the vagina and cause ejaculation. This takes effort. Also if the women is giving oral sex she must move her head back and forth to properly suck the penis and it takes muscle power.
Also, in many studies, it shows that sex improves health.
So, you did not debunk my argument because burning calories is not the main reason for sex.
Sex is not used to work out!!!
Thanks for agreeing with me.
I HIGHLY doubt that people have sex to develop more muscle or to lose weight.
I know the purpose is not what you said. But sex should be considered an exercise just like push-ups.
