Ladies, you may think you want a man with chiseled abs like Idris Alba but it turns out a romance with a larger gentleman could do wonders for your sex life, so dey say!
New research has shown that men with larger bellies make better lovers due to having enhanced stamina in the bedroom.
Scientists at Erciyes University in Kayseri, Turkey, surveyed 200 men and compared their body mass index (BMI) and their sexual performance.
The year-long study of 200 men took place at Erciyes University in Kayseri, Turkey, and looked into a correlation between body mass index (BMI) and sexual performance.
The results of the study found that men who are overweight, and who have more protruding belly fat, last on average five minutes longer in bed than those without.
The thinner members of the research group lasted on average just above two minutes and were more likely to suffer from premature ejaculation, compared to those with a higher BMI who lasted an average of 7.3 minutes.
According to the study, belly fat is the reason the men could last longer, as it increases the amount of estradiol, a female sex hormone which helps to delay orgasm.
So eat up fellas – but not too much, because in all seriousness, while being overweight might make you last longer in bed, it can also have a negative impact on your long-term health.
