Today in Sex News: Condom Delivery in Dubai and Sex Burns Fewer Calories Than Previously ThoughtS

If you ever find yourself about to have sex in Dubai but you don't have a condom, then you're in luck; instead of risking disease and/or pregnancy or having to ruin the moment by running to the store, you can now have condoms delivered via a Durex app or their website. (Note: This will likely still ruin the moment, but at least you won't have to go outside).

And if, somehow, you've managed not to let your partner know you're ordering a condom, don't worry, Durex has you covered, so to speak. The condom delivery guy will disguise himself as a pizza delivery guy (or a tourist!) and will "slyly slip you the goods without your date noticing." Of course, if your date is the sort that wouldn't notice a random encounter with a pizza delivery guy or a tourist, then you might want to reconsider. But still, what an amazing technological advance. Condoms from your phone. What's next?

The bad news, however, is that if you manage to get that condom and have actual sex, you won't get as much exercise as scientists previously thought. According to recently "exposed obesity myths," your average roll in the hay only lasts six minutes and burns 21 calories, far fewer than the 100-300 calories commonly cited. For comparisons sake, you burn 21 calories walking around or seven calories watching TV. In other words, if you're having sex as a replacement for working out, you're probably better off just ordering condoms from your phone while walking around your apartment.
