Girls, you may think they want a man with a chiseled abdomen like that of movie actors, but it turns out that science says that a man with a little belly can make sex wonderful. Surprised?
A recent study by Erciyes University in Kayseri, Turkey, whose researchers took a year to complete, analyzes the relationship between body mass index and male sexual performance. Their findings revealed that men with a slight overweight or with a somewhat less than flat belly last the amazing amount of five minutes, five minutes! more during sex, unlike thin men.
After surveying 200 men, the researchers found that men with a higher body mass index (that is, somewhat thick) last an average of 7.3 more minutes in bed. The thinnest man in the group barely lasted two minutes and the slender ones, in general, were more prone to suffer from premature ejaculation.
Why have a bigger belly makes a man be able to maintain relationships for longer?
Experts suggested that having more fat around the stomach area may mean that a man has more estradiol, a female sex hormone that helps inhibit orgasms in men.
So: to eat has been said guys! but not too much, because even though excess weight can make them last longer in bed, it can also have a negative long-term health impact. The important thing is to maintain an ideal weight, take care of the diet and exercise, right?
