Next time when you look at your overweightpartner, do not get frustrated as he is the one who can beat slimmer men atleast on one front -- in between the sheets.
According to ayear-long survey involving 200 men in Turkey, overweight men with obviousbellies can last an amazing five minutes longer during sex than slim men.
For the study, theteam from Erciyes University in Kayseri, Turkey, looked at the correlationbetween body mass index (BMI) and male sexual performance.
On an average, menwith a higher BMI lasted an average of 7.3 minutes in bed.
The slimmer of thegroup barely lasted two minutes and were more likely to suffer from prematureejaculation, newvision.co.ug reported.
"So let us saya guy has sex 100 times annually. If he has a belly, he is going to spendapproximately eight hours -- an entire work day -- more per year in sex withhis lover than if he has a six-pack. That is a substantial amount oftime," the report added.
According to theresearchers, apart from lifestyle issues, more belly fat could be a result ofmore estradiol -- a female sex hormone.
Men with slightlyhigher estradiol are more likely to develop a big belly, they added.
