Here's a healthy benefit to being fat.
One study says that overweight women are having more sex than normal weight women.
According to this study--I first saw it reported on That's Fit--big girls have more fun in bed.
The research is based on the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth, found that bigger women simply have intercourse with men more often than normal weight women.
On one hand, the study in itself is offensive if it started out assuming the stereotype that fat women can't get any. That's just wrong. But objectively, it is interesting, and researchers aren't sure why overweight women reported more sexual activity.
What do you think of this study? Why would bigger women have more sex than skinnier ones?
