Bad news: Obese men don’t have better sex lives after all

Obese women were 29 percent less likely to have had a sex partner in the previous 12 months, compared with women of normal weight.

Obese men were 69 percent less likely to report having more than one sexual partner in the same period and two and a half times likelier to report erection problems than non-obese counterparts. Obese men under 30 were also far likelier to have a sexually transmitted disease.
