The Sex Pack

by The Next Family October 01, 2010

By: Susan Howard

To be fit, to feel good in your body, you want to stay active in general. What’s the most fun workout ever? Read on and learn how to get the sexiest abs.

Kissing burns 2 to 5 calories per minute, foreplay -95 calories per half an hour, and actual bumping and grinding -150 per half an hour. Where studies get these numbers, I can only imagine. Of course these are estimations, as it depends on the size of the people involved and the vigor of the activity.

There is even an iphone app called a “bedometer” that counts the exact calories burned in bed. I am not sure if you attach the phone to the mattress or where. Warning: If you use this app you might want to hide it from your partner lest they think you are more concerned about your flat stomach than the intimacy you two might share. “Keep going babe; I am almost to my goal weight.”

What does this have to do with fitness? Absolutely nothing and a lot. Beyond the actual calories let’s think about this: sex gets your heart rate up, reduces stress which can lead to over eating, helps you sleep better, and can ultimately get you the sex pack abs.

So what are you waiting for? Grab your partner and get busy. Even if you don’t think you are in the mood, you will be. Just do it.

For you single readers, remember this: If you haven’t got a penny, a hay penny will do. If you haven’t got a hay penny, then god bless you.

Life can get busy.

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

by The Next Family March 24, 2016 1 Comment


By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
