Can excess weight derail your sex life? Unfortunately, the answer is yes, Dr. Laura Berman tells Fox News.
The good news is that losing even a little weight can help to improve sexual function. In fact, a recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that obese men who lost just 5-10 percent of their body weight experienced improved desire as a result.
Other studies have linked female sexual satisfaction and weight loss. A study by the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found that bariatric surgery had impressive effects on women's sex lives.
Losing weight can have physical benefits, particularly for those who are greatly overweight. It can help to regulate one's hormones and also help to improve circulation across the body. It can also help people to move more easily and feel more comfortable during sex.
Losing weight can also have emotional benefits, improving self-image and confidence in the bedroom.
