MODERATOR:
Welcome to WebMD Live, Ms. McCloskey. The first paragraph of your book reads: "I have an amazing secret. It has changed my life. It has made me healthier and happier than ever before." Tell us more! What is this secret?

McCLOSKEY:
The secret is that I have discovered a comprehensive new diet program that incorporates sex and actually uses it as a tool to help you lose weight. The plan includes everything from sensual foods to exercises you can do with your partner. This includes sex, exercise that isn't sex, and techniques for igniting desire and boosting your sexual confidence.

MEMBER QUESTION:
My husband bought your book for me/us about a month ago, and I want to thank you so much because it works! We both lost a few pounds, but most importantly to me, is that I feel like we're on our honeymoon again. Anyway, my question is, is it unhealthy to have too much sex? We've been making love about twice a day, is that ok?

McCLOSKEY:
I think it's wonderful and I think twice a day is well above the norm, but I think it's a great thing. As long as no one's getting hurt I would encourage you to continue and have fun. I'm sure that in addition to your increased intimacy you're enjoying the health benefits, as well. You've probably noticed an elevation in your mood and you're probably feeling less stressed and sleeping better, as well. Thank you for purchasing the book, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

MEMBER QUESTION:
Does your book discuss the best positions to use to maximize calories burned during lovemaking?

McCLOSKEY:
Yes, it does discuss some positions that can be used to specifically target and tone areas of the body. Some require more flexibility than others, so you may need to work up to them. Additionally, the book includes exercises that can be used as a form of foreplay that are not sex. These are exercises you can do in the bedroom with your partner where you're using each other almost as if you're specialized gym equipment. So, in a sense, your partner serves as your personal trainer.

MODERATOR:
You talk about floor play "sexercises." Could you describe them?

McCLOSKEY:
Sure. I'll describe a couple of these exercises. There is one called the Chest Press, where literally one person is lying on the floor and first one partner does pushups and they can give each other little kisses in between while the one person is working their arm muscles. Then they can switch and the person on the bottom uses the person on the top as a weight and works their arm muscles. Another one that is fun to do is one called the Libido Lifter, where both partners lie on the floor facing the same direction and lift their top leg together. These exercises may sound silly but they actually work. They are fun and nothing gets you in the mood more than laughing and having fun.

MODERATOR:
The names of some of the exercises are fun themselves: Elvis Pelvis, Crunchy Kiss, Love Squat, Sexy Breath and The See-Saw.
