Body mass index, sexual difficulties and sexual satisfaction among people in regular heterosexual relationships: a population-based study
Internal Medicine Journal, 06/21/2012
Smith AMA et al. – With the exception of body image difficulties, there is little association between body mass index (BMI) and self–reported sexual difficulties. Furthermore, extreme sexual and emotional satisfaction appeared to be associated with the presence or absence of sexual difficulties and not overly influenced by BMI. Overall, clinicians and patients should be aware that being overweight is not necessarily detrimental to sexual functioning.
