Overweight men last longer in bed than their slim counterparts, according to a new study by researchers in Turkey.
They found that blokes with excess body fat have higher levels of the female hormone oestradiol, which disrupts the chemical balances in their bodies.
As a result, it takes them longer to reach climax than men of a healthier weight with lower levels of the hormone.
Indeed, while fat men can have intercourse for 7.3 minutes before orgasm, slender guys can only clock up 1.8 minutes.
The findings emerged when the researchers recorded the body mass index of more than 100 patients receiving treatment for premature ejaculation.
“We found that premature ejaculators were leaner,” the report read.
The publication of the report comes after researchers in the US found that fat women have more sex than ladies of a normal weight.
However, being overweight can have a negative impact on a person’s sex life, as their libido can suffer as a result.
