Sewing vs. Sex

So I had a stress test this morning to check out the ol’ ticker (everything seems to be fine, if you were worried/wondering — or in Tino’s Larry King voice, “Heart still beating.”).

Now, if you’ve never had a stress test, this usually involves getting hooked up to an EKG monitor and then walking/running on a treadmill for a while to make sure a little exercise doesn’t make your heart go wonky. Bonus, they shaved these funny little patches on my chest in order to attach the EKG leads, so I look like I got into a fight with a cosmetology school dropout or engaged in some sort of S&M play involving hot candle wax.

Anyway, my treadmill faced a wall that was covered with pamphlets and cartoons about getting enough exercise and maintaining a healthy weight — not a single mention of the health benefits of bacon, so I cry foul — but what caught my eye as I was trying to pretend that I’m in totally great shape and exercise, like, ALL the time, was this list of MET values for various activities.

A MET is the Metabolic Equivalent of Task, or a comparative measure of how much energy/oxygen your body requires to perform an activity — sitting down and watching TV is 1.0, sleeping is 0.9, walking ranges from 2.3-3.3 depending on speed, butchering an animal is 6.0, etc.

Now, I’m uncertain how current this list was, but two adjacent entries, since the list was alphabetical, caught my eye:

Sewing: 2.0
Sexual activity: 1.0-1.5

Which leads me to the question I now pose to you, gentle readers/listeners:

Am I doing this sex stuff totally wrong, or do I just not understand sewing?

Addendum from Chris, on sabbatical: “And where does Tino’s Sewing vaginas shut hobby fall on that range, because it seems like a combination of the two. 3.5?”

UnPR Archive – Sex and Sexuality

 

In this pre-run (as opposed to re-run), we share a podcast from our development phase.  This was the episode Chris first revealed his antipathy for bisexuals.  Also, this was the first time everyone but Tino decided it would be hilarious to make fun of Tino’s age.  In this episode: We overshare our sex stories.  We push deeper into twinks.  A beloved football coach is honored and shamed.  We all play the crying game.  And robots make sweet, sweet love.
