Despite the widespread attitude in many societies that fat bodies aren't sexy, plus-size women can have satisfying sexual relationships if they accept their bodies, a small study finds. Overweight women who feel shame about their weight, however, tend to have less satisfying sex lives.

The subjects were classified as obese or morbidly obese based on body mass index, with their weights ranging from pounds to pounds 98 kilograms to kilograms.

Not only are there health risks to being overweight, but for most women, a lean physique is much more attractive. Even more important than how other people see you, is your perception of your body. Maintaining a healthy body weight encourages self-confidence and promotes a healthy and positive outlook on life. In addition, if you are overweight and looking down at your penis from above a big belly, you might start thinking of your penis as small because layers of fat obscure so much of it. Remember, the penis comes from under the pubic bone. If there are two or three inches of fat above the pubic bone pre-pubic fat , your erect penis will need to traverse that distance before it sees the light of day. That, in turn, will cause you to think small about your penis power.
We examined sex hormone blood concentrations in a group of 33 obese non-hirsute premenopausal women with normal menses and in 14 age-matched normal-weight controls, and evaluated their relationship with anthropometric parameters, dietary habits and insulin levels. Obese women showed lower than control sex hormone-binding globulin Despite their consensual behavior, the correlation coefficient between 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone and sex hormone-binding globulin was not significant in the obese while in controls it was 0. This suggests that mechanisms operating to lower the plasma levels of these compounds may be regulated differently in obesity. Body Mass Index, per cent body fat and its distribution showed a highly significant negative correlation with sex-hormone binding-globulin and 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone values.
