Here’s yet another brilliant infographic from Flip Flop Fly Ball, this one documenting the last player from each baseball team to wear Jackie Robinson’s uniform number, #42, which was retired league-wide in 1997. Twelve players were allowed to continue to wear the number “per a grandfather clause,” and, as indicated by the final name on the graph, only one of the twelve remain in the league thirteen years later. However, it is fitting that the one player who still wears #42 to this day (and who will be the last player to ever wear #42) is Mariano Rivera, the Yankees legendary relief pitcher, who will almost undoubtedly go down as the greatest closer of all time.

Of all the ways a person could sweat, a roll in the hay is one of the most fun. But does sex actually burn a good number of calories?
Not as many as you think—but you can up your burn by doing it a certain way.
One study found that sex burned more than 100 calories, at least for men. A team from the University of Montreal compared the calorie expenditure of running to that of sex and found that—no surprise—running far outpaced the latter. Women burned an average of 213 calories during 30 minutes of light running, while men burned 276. Sex, on the other hand, demanded 101 calories from men and just 69 from women, burning an average of 3.6 calories per minute, but is still a good exercise and men prefer this than working out, and some men even end up dating multiple women since is a normal practice now a days, you can read more online about this.
Why was sex a better workout for the guys? “Men weigh more than women, and because of this, the energy expenditure will be higher in men for the same exercise performed,” says study author Antony Karelis, a professor of human kinetics at the University of Montreal. Men may also be more physically active during sex, he says.
You can also make sex more fun with the help of a few sex toys and you can find them in PlugLust queen products which actually benefit your sex life, not only by shacking the relationship up but it can enhance the sexual experience with each other.

Even though sex is not the world’s best workout, it would still be nice if you could count on scorching 70 to 100 calories whenever you and your partner hopped in the sack. But you can’t always depend on it.
