Obesity is absolutely detrimental to your health and increases several risks including heart disease and stroke. But despite the risks, there is one bright side for those who are big around the belt, if you catch my drift. According to a new study, obese men last longer during sex than skinner guys do!
Researchers at Turkey’s Erciyes University concluded heavier men lasted for 7 and a half minutes on average compared to their skinnier counterparts who only lasted 6 minutes.
If that doesn’t want to make you devour anything in sight I don’t know what will!
Can I also add the study is called “Insight on the pathogenesis of lifelong premature ejaculation: inverse relationship between lifelong premature ejaculation and obesity,” which is a pretty impressively hilarious title? Just had to throw that fun fact in there!
They discovered that heavier men have a higher amount of estradiol in their bodies. Believe it or not, estradiol is a female sex hormone, but it can “suppress the male orgasm.” With that being said, the higher amounts an obese man has, the longer he can last in bed. And although it sounds like a bad thing for them; it’s a fantastic thing for us women.
In another hit below the belt to those who are thinner, most men who suffer from premature ejaculation during sex are those who are slimmer around the waistband. Owch.
I know what you’re thinking men, “Yes, I’m going to go eat three Whoppers, and half a cake, and sleep with my girlfriend so we can have the best sex ever!” But you have to resist the urge to indulge in the sweets. Having an unhealthy diet to the point of having severe health complications is not worth an extra minute and a half of sex!
Contrary to what most men believe, women don’t really care that much if men cross the finish line a little early. We know it’s something they can’t control and that sometimes it’s easier to than others, it’s not their fault. The news just comes as shocking!
On a flip side of the spectrum, eating healthier helps women drastically enhance their sex lives. By having a better diet it helps increase orgasms and arousal. The Santa Chiara Regional Hospital in Trento, Italy, proved this fact by comparing women who ate apples regularly to those who didn’t. So an apple a day might keep the doctor away, and help you during foreplay.
But men, don’t use this as a justification as to why you should continue to eat McDonald’s and other forms of fast foods. The risks of obesity are far worse than wanting the ability to last in bed. We as women want you healthier so we can keep you around longer with minimal risks!
