For years, movies, gossip magazines and pretty much everyone on earth has assumed guys who are healthy and work out are more likely to be good in bed than guys who sit on the couch all day and turn into Kevin Smith.

However, a new study (bound to be contradicted immediately) by something called Erciles University in Kayseri (you were expecting Harvard Med?) says dudes with extra pounds last a few crucial and thrilling minutes longer.

That is, unless you just want him to get off and off of you already.

Researchers… completed a yearlong study correlating body mass index (BMI) and male sexual performance. Their findings: Men with excess body fat last longer in bed. In fact, heavier men were able to make love for an average of 7.3 minutes, while slender men could count themselves lucky if they held on for a mere 108 seconds. 

The reason? Female hormones. Men with excess fat showed higher levels of the female estradiol sex hormone. This substance apparently disrupted their bodies' natural "male" neurotransmitter chemicals and slowed their progression towards orgasm. Ironically, the less masculine their bodies appeared, the better lovers they proved to be. [Salon]

Chew on that until your lunch hour… but, really, we probably shouldn't ask you to try it out and see if this research is true… unless you want to.
