Good News: James Deen’s Doctor Says Sex Is A Workout — But Only Porn Sex

By: Jessica Wakeman / April 30, 2013

“My doctor actually told me that sex doesn’t count as cardio and working out. And then the next time I saw him he had seen one of my scenes, and he told me, “You are OK.” In the film world, people don’t realize you’re not just having sex. Sex on camera can be anywhere from 20 minutes to four hours. It all depends on the production and type of scene. It’s also not just standard sex, like, “Let’s just make each other’s bodies feel good.” It’s physical, entertainment-style sex. So while you might ride a motorcycle in a certain way when you’re driving to work, if you’re a stunt person and you’re going to ride that motorcycle on camera, you’re going to do a totally different style of motorcycle riding. My whole point is that because of the on-camera sex, I have this insane style of stunt sex. It actually is very physically strenuous. It’s a good workout. All the positioning and weird things. My doctor said so! Doctor-approved workout.”

And here I was thinking that sex, my preferred (and, um, only) form of workout, was a super-sneaky way to get some serious cardio. Not true. Like, at all. Damn you, James Deen’s doctor, damn you! [GQ]
