5. 10 minutes on the treadmill feels like an eternity. 10 minutes of sex often feels like it went by in less than 30 seconds.

4. In the gym you are usually surrounded by a bunch of overly muscled dudes grunting and straining. During sex, not only are you the most muscular guy in the room, the person doing the grunting is much prettier!

3. In aerobics class you are surrounded by 20 beautiful women who wouldn’t give you the time of day. During sex you have one woman so beautiful that you won’t remember what time of day it is.

2. Whenever you run the track it seems like you are getting nowhere fast. During sex you know you’re going nowhere (well at least no more than five feet in either direction) and you’re more than okay with that.

1. When you go to the gym after eating pizza you feel guilty for cheating on your diet. During sex you never feel guilty about the pizza, cookies, or cake you ate earlier because, quite frankly, you will have other more pleasant things on your mind.

Caveat: Sex is a wonderful blessing from God and should only be enjoyed within the bounds of marriage. While sex inside marriage is beautiful, pleasurable, and down right great exercise, sex outside of marriage often causes pain, the occasional venereal disease, and is usually too sporadic to count as good exercise. So enjoy- but only within good clean healthy moral limits. HA!

    Now we need your wife to to write it from a womans perspective for all of us gals!

    Amen!…and I can’t stop laughing!

  6. You may want to beef up your caveat. Don’t forget illegitimate children, baby’s daddies who don’t pay child support, cancer….

    You do need a woman’s perspective. After all, single women out-life married women, so the sex can’t be good exercise for us. (Married men, however, outlive unmarried men. Also note that about 2/3ds of divorces are initiated by women.) Perhaps marital sex is the process by which vitality is transferred from women to men….

    /snark (Told you I would be prepared!)

  7. “Perhaps marital sex is the process by which vitality is transferred from women to men”

    That would explain a lot. HA!

    “After all, single women out-life married women, so the sex can’t be good exercise for us”

    I think the consequences of sex (i.e. children) have a lot more to do with that than the act itself. Then again I think we should recognize your particular bias in this.

    Ha! and so true! Love it. To chime in with the gals…You do need a womens view on the subject

    Actually, it’s fascinating. Women are more likely to initiate divorce (about 2/3ds of divorces are initiated by women); women in unsatisfying marriages are generally in much worse health than are women in happy marriages.

    Researchers seem to agree that the main benefit to women in marriage is financial; they are not stressed about income and have more resources. Basically, once you control for socioeconomic status, being a married women does not bring any benefits. Men, however, do well across the board: longer, healthier, and happier lives. The differential between married and unmarried men is pretty huge.

    After a divorce, a woman’s standard of living drops about 27% and a man’s rises about 10%; there is a much larger penalty to divorcing, yet women do it in higher numbers.

    If I’m really bored someday (ha! – like after I get out of law school), I’ll probably blog on this. Fascinating, really, how marriage differentially affects men and women, in terms of health, mental health, happiness, and finances.

    Then again I think we should recognize your particular bias in this.

    Hey, you’re biased, too. 😉 Your bias is to help out your side by encouraging women to get hitched so y’all don’t weed yourselves out of the gene pool through motorcycle accidents or whatever risk-taking initiatives befall unmarried men. 🙂

    —-

    Again, told you I would have my cynicism at the ready.

  10. You’re biased, too. 🙂

    Just pointing out that it’s not all bad for the celibate persons of the world. Actually, if you read too much about the psychological effects of marriage upon women, it makes you want to run to a convent. But such is another rant for another time. 🙂

  11. “Researchers seem to agree that the main benefit to women in marriage is financial; they are not stressed about income and have more resources. Basically, once you control for socioeconomic status, being a married women does not bring any benefits.”

    That study had one major flaw. It didn’t include me in the sample! 😉

    TT:

    I thoroughly enjoyed your post until I read Theo’s comments. Now, I am downright anxious and depressed! The next time the opportunity presents itself in having sex, I just may gracefully decline and explain to her it’s because I love her too much!

    Best,
    Joe

    In the post above, I was referring to my lovely wife!

  14. …at which point, she’ll think you’re such a gentleman that she’ll be begging for it. 😉
