Why Fat Guys Are Better in Bed

September 8, 2010

When it comes to sex, size does matter. Belly size. New research has found that men with beer guts are actually better in bed.

After concluding a year-long study comparing body mass index (BMI) and male sexual performance, researchers at Erciyes University in Turkey have found that overweight men last longer in bed. It found that 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 portly men are Don Juans in the bedroom is far from manly. Researchers found that overweight men contain higher levels of the female estradiol sex hormone. This disrupts the body’s natural "male" neurotransmitter chemicals and slows down the journey to orgasm. This gives fat dudes more time to pleasure their partner. So if you gauge long sex as good sex, then the fat men win. But they win because they are more womanly.

Seeing as America is considered the third fattest country in the world, it’s safe to say we can now claim to be among the best lovers in the world.
