Study Shows Obese Men Last Longer During Sex

Before I give you the good news, please be aware that obesity is detrimental to your health and can increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.

OK, now that we've gotten that out of the way, allow me to enlighten you with a... well, "positive" aspect of suffering from obesity if you're a dude.

According to a study, obese men last longer during sex than skinnier guys do.

So now, couples don't have to feel remorse after enjoying a pizza pie or a lavish dinner before going to bed (and we all know couples who eat together, stay together).

Researchers at Turkey's Erciyes University concluded men who are obese last 7.5 minutes during sex compared to six minutes endured by thinner men.

Apparently, the research called "Insight on pathogenesis of lifelong premature ejaculation: inverse relationship between lifelong premature ejaculation and obesity," concluded heavier men have a higher amount of estradiol in their bodies.

Estradiol is a female sex hormone, but it can suppress the male orgasm.

Therefore, higher amounts of estradiol in men who suffer from obesity allows them to last longer during sex.

They can last exactly 1.5 minutes longer, to be exact.

Of course, this doesn't justify eating ten Big Macs every week in honor of your godlike sex stamina. For the sake of your health, keep the fatty foods on the down low.

However, it's been proven by the study that men who have suffered premature ejaculation during sex are thinner than men who last longer before orgasming.

When it comes to women, eating healthier will benefit their sex lives by increasing orgasms and heightening their levels of arousal.

A study by Santa Chiara Regional Hospital in Trento, Italy, proved women who eat healthier have better sex lives by comparing women who ate apples on the reg to those who didn't.

In other words, if you're a lady, know that an apple a day makes for a great sex life. But if you're a dude, know that some fries here and there won't hurt your sex life.
