While slim guys have a reputation of putting it down in bed, men that carry some extra weight have more than gossip to back up these claims as a scientific study shows that chunky men are able to last longer during intercourse than men who weight an average weight.
Scientists at Erciyes University performed a research study on 200 men and compared their BMI (Body Mass Index) and their sexual performance. The researches found that the men who were higher in BMI aka chunkier lasted an average of 7.3 minutes minutes in bed, while the slimmer men lasted just about two minutes on average.
So, how are chunky males able to have more stamina if they are carrying this extra weight? Well men that have more fat around their midsection contain more estradiol in their body; a female sex hormone that helps to inhibit orgasms in males.
Another thing that is interesting to note about this study is that the slim men didn’t just last for shorter periods of times during sex, but a significant amount of the lightweights also suffered from premature ejaculation. “As the BMI increased, the number of patients decreased in the premature ejaculation group.” states the study.
