Substantial weight loss could bring big gains in the bedroom, a new study finds. The report was presented at the Obesity Society’s annual meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
According to U.S. researchers, obese individuals who slimmed down enjoyed enhanced sex lives, on top of feeling healthier.
Previous research by Martin Binks’, director of behavior health at Duke University’s Diet and Fitness Center in Durham, N.C., suggested that obese people experienced significantly high rates of difficulty in the quality of their sex lives. However, “little is known about the impact of weight loss on these factors,” the researcher said.
In their study, Binks and his colleagues examined sexual quality of life data from a weight-loss trial. The trial included 161 obese women and 26 obese men.
