The verdict is in: No matter how out of shape you are, you are never too far gone to lose weight by having copious amounts of sex. In fact, if you're Pauline Potter, the Guinness Book of World Records' Heaviest Living Woman, you can shed 100 pounds — an entire person — in seven months by having marathon sex sessions. Upwards of seven times a day.

According to the UK magazine Closer, Pauline weighed 643 pounds and was consuming 10,000 calories daily when she decided to call the folks at Guinness to basically shame herself into losing weight. But her newfound fame garnered the unlikely attention of an old flame — her ex-husband Alex. He got back in touch with Pauline and the two embarked on an epic sexathon — and they're not done yet! She says she wants to lose even more weight and has been adjusting her eating habits in addition to amping up her bedroom antics.

In the interview, Pauline said, “I can't move much in bed, but I burn 500 calories a session. It's great exercise just jiggling around."

Um. Guess you have to start somewhere.

All kidding aside, this is the strangest yet most uplifting news I've heard all day. In the spirit of Pauline Potter, grab your significant other and take these six calorie-burning sex moves for a spin. Maybe you can set a Guinness record of your own tonight!
