Better form is synonymous with better sex

Practice a healthier, more intimate relationship

A recent European study found that overweight women had more difficulty finding a sexual partner than women who were not overweight. Well, that goes without saying, right? I mean, aside from a couple of "chubby hunters," people were conditioned by advertising and television to favor women who were poor. There are exceptions to this rule, but for the most part, the women in the ads are not Queen Latifah.

And I say shame for that. Most women (and most men) are not small and the average size of a woman's dress is not a single figure. Far from it. But you have to put everything aside and accept the fact that if you want a better sex life, two things have to be there. The first is that you should be in a healthy weight range, but more importantly, you need to have a positive body image. It's amazing for me to see how people take this body image away from the norm or perceived beauty standards, but some people do.

The same study has shown that obese men find it much easier to find a sexual partner, and I think this is entirely due to what is going on in their heads. For some reason, men are often blind to the truth about their appearance, and because of this, they have a better self-image and more confidence, and this is projected outwards. I don't want this article to be just about self-confidence, so it's done, but it should give you something to think about.

Other facts found in the study are that overweight men tend to have more problems with erectile dysfunction and that overweight women tend to have more unplanned pregnancies. That last fact made me sit down and say "HUH?" That doesn't sound intuitive, but it is there.

Now that's the thing. How do you find out what is overweight, healthy, or obese? They used the body mass index scale, which I have some problems with, but it's usually a good indicator of your position. A BMI between 18 and 24 is considered healthy, 25 to 29 as overweight and 30 and more as obese. To calculate your BMI, multiply your weight in pounds by 703 and divide it by your height in square inches.

For example, a 70 "tall man weighing 190 pounds would work as follows: 190 x 703 / (70 x 70) = 133570/4990 = 26.7, which means" overweight ". The BMI is only a general and considered guideline not whether your body weight is fat or muscle, but that gives you something to consider.

If you bring the article back to the starting point, a reduction in your body mass index is likely to have a positive effect on your self-image and your sex life.
