Is Sex Better With Weight Control?

Okay, I know I have your attention now. “Sex Sells” is an expression used in the marketing/advertising worlds because they know that human nature is such that people tend to be interested in reading/watching stories about sex. So here goes: How does weight control impact on sex?

Let’s first focus on men. Obesity has a great chance of negatively impacting on sexual desire and performance. Obesity is linked to erectile dysfunction as well as lower libido. There is also a chance of “Buried Penis Syndrome” that is essentially a skin/fat fold issue where the penis is hidden. Anxiety about performance and “look” also add to the sexual dysfunction.

Women also suffer from sexual dysfunction issues caused by poor circulation to the genital area as well as libido decrease. Additionally, poor self-image brings about a lessening of sexual satisfaction and desire.

Controlling weight provides a whole bunch of positive physical and psychological benefits. Count a better sex life as one of these benefits.

And see, a story about sex in a completely PG manner!
