It’s common knowledge that the two best things in the world are sex and the iPhone. Well now two whizz kids have made an app that combines the two, calculating how many calories you burn each time you have sex.

For a one-off payment of 59p (69 would have been more apt) you get an app called Bedometer which claims that a 15 minute sex session is likely to burn up to 200 calories. Now here’s the science bit: the app works by placing it on your bed and using the sensitive accelerometer inbuilt in the iPhone; any movements will be recorded and turned into a calorie count.

Other bonus features include an automatic link straight to your Facebook account telling your friends how many ‘thrusts’ you managed and a ‘solo’ version. Has technology eaten itself?
