You know that sexy six pack you’ve been working on? Turns out you might be better off downing a Big Mac. At least when it comes to sex.
Researchers at Erciyes University in Kayseri, Turkey found that overweight men are better in bed, at least as far as sexual stamina goes. The yearlong study looked at the relationship between body mass index and male sexual performance, and found that men with bigger guts lasted an average of five minutes longer in the sack than their thinner counterparts. Five minutes! That puts most regular Joes ahead of super hunks like Ryan Gosling.
So what now, Mr. washboard abs?
We’re already gone, bruh.
In fact, out of the 200 men who were surveyed, the ones with a higher BMI lasted an average of 7.3 minutes in bed. As for the skinny crew? An embarrassing two minutes. If you do some quick math, that’s a whole lot more time to get down and dirty every year.
Sexy, isn’t it?
So why do larger men last longer? Scientists say that more belly fat equals more estradiol, which is a female sex hormone that helps inhibit orgasms.
In other words: screw the treadmill. It’s time to find a nice spot on the couch, crack a beer and pig out.
Because ain’t nobody got time for sit-ups anyway.
