While fellas with bellies are often dissed and dismissed, science says that love handles on a man can actually be a good thing. Fat men are better in bed, at least in terms of stamina.
Scientific research coming out of Erciyes University in Turkey compiled the results of a yearlong study that looked at the correlation between body mass index (BMI) and male sexual performance. Overweight men do in fact last longer than their slimmer counterparts. A whole 5 minutes longer to be exact.
Surveying a total of 200 men, researchers found that fat men have higher levels of oestradiol, a female sex hormone that helps to inhibit orgasm, making them last an average of 7.3 minutes longer than those without the extra chub (pun!). Meanwhile, the leaner, more fit men they surveyed barely lasted 2 minutes, and were mostly subject to premature ejaculation.
So next time your fella wants to supersize his poutine, maybe you should just let him. It's in your interest.
