Heavier Men Have Better Sex Lives

A rather amusing study coming out of Turkey.  Men with higher BMIs take longer to reach ejaculation, thereby prolonging their sexual pleasure. LOL Okay, it's easy to giggle a bit here, maybe even an outright guffaw, but this study looked at over 100 men over the period of a year.  The results are going to make you giggle more.  Ready?
  • The lower the BMI, the quicker the man reached ejaculation.  In fact jocks only lasted 1.8 minutes.
  • Those at the higher end of the BMI scale averaged 7.3 minutes.
There are a myriad of possibilities as to why.  The study didn't bother to elaborate other than to say there are both physiological and psychological reasons as to why.  Maybe men who are out of shape find it more difficult to maintain thrusting to reach ejaculation.  Perhaps overweight men feel the need to make sure their partners have full pleasure as well, more so than skinnier guys. We do know that obesity is associated with erectile dysfunction, so perhaps men who aren't at the ED end of the spectrum are on their way there?  Like diabetes, it takes a while to develop in the body. Should you gain a few pounds to increase your pleasure?  Is it worth it to become obese and risk heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and more for a few additional seconds of pleasure?  Isn't doing math problems in your head a healthier approach to longer staying power? I'd like to use this as a wakeup call to the guys.  Being overweight or obese affects everything in your life, from how you perceive yourself to what you are physically able to do to how long you live.  Please think about that the next time you wanna ditch your workout.

    I’m not sure how heavy of men they studied, but I know from experience that as my husband has gained weight that this study is bull. Sorry but the more weight he has gained, the less he has the energy to have any type of sex life. And he’s not lasting as long as he did when he wasn’t heavy. So at least IMO I can’t see this being true.

    Uh-oh! I hope this means that men aren’t going to start packing on the pounds. I wonder how many men would trade in health issues for a longer time to reach ejaculation. Make sure you don’t let this article or your post get out ;)

    Nothing says hot sex better than a study from Turkey.

    Not to get graphic, but when I was over 400 pounds, women could not stop me!!!!!

    From eating that is

    How ironic- my “human” word is uncoming

    Jared and Marsha,

    I think you both bring up amazingly valid points. The study looks at one aspect of health and that’s it. This is posted in the humor section for a reason … ;-)
