Obesity linked to poorer sex life--study

Another addition to the long list of ills associated with obesity is that it can have a dampening effect on ones sexual life, claims a new study.

According to researchers from the National Institute of Health and Medical Research in Paris and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, obese men and women have more health issues that have a damaging effect on their sexual life than people with normal weight.

Sandy Goldbeck-Wood, a British gynecologist specializing in psychosexual medicine, stated, "In public health terms, the study lends a new slant to a familiar message: that obesity can harm not only health and longevity, but your sex life. And culturally, it reminds us clinicians and researchers to look at the subjects we find difficult."
