Size Does Matter
Fat is fun! At least, that’s the word from Turkey this month. Researchers at Erciyes University in Kayseri have just completed a year long study correlating body mass index (BMI) and male sexual performance. Their findings: Men with excess body fat last longer in bed. In fact, heavier men were able to make love for an average of 7.3 minutes, while slender men could count themselves lucky if they held on for a mere 108 seconds.
The reason? Female hormones. Men with excess fat showed higher levels of the female estradiol sex hormone. This substance apparently disrupted their bodies natural “male” neurotransmitter chemicals and slowed their progression towards orgasm.
