Some sex-diets involve a routine of partner-supported exercises designed to tone muscles and improve flexibility. One such program, documented by Kerry McCloskey in her book, The Ultimate Sex Diet (ISBN 193311150X), includes a sensual eating program that focuses on food as an aphrodisiac.
Other sex-diets focus on improving emotional intimacy. One such sex-diet is the one documented by Laura Corn in her book, The Great American Sex Diet (ISBN 0066212782), which recommends having sex four times a week for twenty-eight days.
Another type of sex-diet focuses simply on improving the experience of sexuality by extending and amplifying the orgasmic response. For example, Donna J Brauer and Alan Brauer, in their book, ESO: How You and Your Lover Can Give Each Other Hours of Extended Sexual Orgasm (ISBN 0446677620), suggest setting aside two half-hour sessions and one hour-and-a-half session per week to practice giving and receiving sexual pleasure for extended periods of time.
The benefits of a sex-diet have been proclaimed by actress Angelina Jolie in the London Daily Mirror (2003) and model Lisa Snowden (2001) for an interview on Salon.com.
However the actual weight lost in this diet is highly debatable since the use of sex alone as exercise does not expend as many calories (though significantly higher than any normal activity). Moreover the "diet" aspect is highly suspect and the only reason for its existence seems to be the "feel good factor" this diet advocates.
