As guy, we are always taught to get fit. There are many reasons, varying from looking better, to not dying of a heart attack. However, let us face it, there are many of us who do it because we want to be better in bed. A healthy lifestyle surely means a healthy dick? That is at least what all the premature ejaculation articles tell us. However, recent research has showed that obese men last longer in bed. I shit you not!
This is according to a study by researchers at Erciyes University in Turkey.
The study showed that the larger men with more stomach fat and a higher BMI could last for an average of 7min 30 seconds in bed.
The study also found that “patients with lifelong PE [premature ejaculation] were leaner than the healthy control cases and the number of the patients decreased as their BMI increased.”
Why Do Fat Men Orgasm Later?
Now the question is, why is this the case? Well, researchers also believe overweight people will have higher levels of the female sex hormone oestradiol (no, I have never heard of it either).
What that hormone does is inhibit the male orgasm. That means he can last longer.
But how much of a benefit is it? Well, the average orgasm for a guy takes about 6 minutes. If fat guys can do it in 7mins 30 secs then that is an extra minute and a half.
Not a Good Idea
The question is, should you think about putting on weight? Well, the answer is no. If you are obese, then you are still likely to die earlier. Then you won’t be having an sex at all, which would suck.
Also, yes, you may be lasting longer, but does a woman really want you to be sweating over her for seven and a half minutes? Lose weight and she will enjoy herself more, which is of course what we all want.
There are plenty of way to not suffer premature ejaculation. You can withdraw when you think you are about to cum, or you can use desensitising gel. There are so many options.
So get some weight lost irrespective of how long you last in bed afterwards. One good way to do it would be to have more sex, and as we see now, you can do it for longer. Who needs to go to the gym?

When he isn't fighting the good fight, he enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, and young daughter. He also enjoys reading and taking long walks.
