Are you overweight? You may be facing these 10 sex related problems
Lucknow: After marriage weight gain is a common problem in India and many other parts of the world. But did you know that putting on weight (or even losing few pounds) can affect your 'sex life' largely.
Yes, it does affect your confidence leading to a poor performance while in the bed. We, however, do not claim that you sex life sucks if you are fat, but it does diminish the pleasure of both the partners.
Here we have tried to explain 10 biggest impacts of weight gain which you may or may not have noticed till date:
- A lower level of confidence

Being overweight doesn’t mean that you would be a poor performer in the bed. But it is a proven fact that extra weight brings down your energy and motivation, which will eventually affect your sex life.
As per the experts, there can be self-consciousness or limiting beliefs about your ability or desire when you are overweight.
- It brings negativity
Some extra kilos can easily take a grip over your mind by distracting you from focusing on your body parts you love. It just takes off your attention from the body parts that enrich confidence in you and drags the spotlight only on the parts you do not like.
It eventually leads to a poor show in the bed and nothing else!
- Erectile dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction is amongst the most common chronic conditions that men face. Weight gain dramatically increases the chances of an uncooperative, lazy penis.
- Decrease in intimacy inside bedroom
If your partner has gained some extra kilos, you should concentrate on the best parts of their body to praise them instead of criticising the unpleasant part. Criticism only leads to dissatisfaction which people usually find in high-fat and unhealthy food. So it increases the risk of gaining more and more weight.
On the other hand, praising the better body parts will inspire your partner to fix the bad parts with hard work and dedication as extra weight always runs in some corner of the brain of every fat person.
- It brings stress
Overthinking about anything will bring stress and so happens when you think excessively about your extra pounds. This, however, can be avoided by dirty talks and stimulating your minds as the biggest sex organ in everyone's body is the brain.
- It limits your sex positions
Well, there is no other way to deal with this problem other than losing some weight. If you have put on extra weight, there are many sex positions which become impossible for you.
- It decreases your desires
The higher your weight, the higher levels of chemical called 'Sex Hormone Binding Globulin' (SHBG) is present in your body. This chemical binds to the sex hormone testosterone. And when there's too much testosterone bound to SHBG, there's not enough available to stimulate desire.
- It makes 'orgasm' less pleasurable
Overweight decreases blood flow to the genitals. The extra kilos narrow-down the blood vessels making it impossible to reach a pleasurable orgasm. It, however, doesn’t mean that being thin makes it more pleasurable. You have to be fully fit for the best orgasm of your life.
- It bring insecurity
When you put on extra weight, it starts ticking in your mind that you are not able to please your partner in the bed. This feeling stops you from expressing yourself completely leading to less pleasurable sexual encounters.
This can be avoided if you can only concentrate on the things that your partner loves being done on him/her. It will transform you into a pleaser and you will be able to satisfy your partner without thinking much about your body.
- Gaining only 10 extra pounds can affect your sex life
Only 10 extra pounds you affect your performance in the bed which you might not be able to recognise but your partner surely will.
But if you manage to lose the same amount of weight, your performance between the sheets will improve significantly giving more pleasure to you and your partner both.
