Women Would Rather Lose Weight than Have Sex

In a blow to the eternal desires and hopes of every red blooded male, it seems sex is becoming less important to women than losing weight.

According to an up-to-the-minute survey, it turns out that around 50 percent of women in the United States believe that being thin is more appealing than having sex.

Many have openly said that this summer they would happily give up sex in exchange for avoiding a 10 pound gain in weight.

Tough Choices

rather lose weightThe survey highlighted many areas where people would be happy to give up their pleasures, which includes sex rather than gain extra pounds. The survey also included around 25 percent of American men who also said they would actually make the same tough choices and sacrifices.

This view is propagated by the media and women see all the fashion shows portraying very thin women as the preferred shape. This places a lot of pressure on women and emphasizes the erroneous belief that as a person, you are the way you appear on the outside and not what you are on the inside.

These shock findings amongst large numbers of people highlight the lack of awareness in the more important aspects of health and fitness which are boosted by living a more active lifestyle. If more people looked after their health, by eating sensibly and getting plenty of daily exercise then losing weight would no longer be an issue for many people.

Obsessed with Losing Weight

It seems almost absurd that a huge percentage of the population of a country the size of the US are so obsessed with weight loss, yet that country has one of the highest percentages of obesity in the world. In fact, Americans are still eating themselves into early graves with obesity figures, currently at an explosive 32 percent and rising, showing no signs of slowing down because diets are still so bad.

Yet this is the country that also has the greatest collection of the most convenient diet programs in the world, with the likes of Nutrisystem, Diet-to-Go, Bistro MD, Sonoma Diet and Jenny Craig to name but a few. With so many easy ways to lose weight, the obesity statistic is such a baffling one.


Obesity is known to be one of the major causes of a variety of weight related illnesses. These include heart disease, back pain, diabetes, certain forms of cancer, gout and arthritis, strokes and also a major cause of lethargy, excessive sweating and breathlessness when doing anything remotely active.

This need not be the case, because one of the easiest ways to deal with obesity is to get out of the house and start walking. Walking is one of the easiest and most enjoyable weight loss exercise anyone can do.

You don't need to plan it, it costs nothing, is a low impact form of exercise and is perfect for beginners or those who have not exercised for a long time.

Alternatively, you and your partner could make a date with the bedroom and both use up some of that excess energy in the nicest way possible!

Try it, you might even like it!

I love what you are up to here. Such clever reporting, especially as this one really hit the nail on the head. I mean, come on guys... we all know that our wives only want to have sex maybe once or twice a month (if we're lucky) and then they get all shirty when we hassle them for more. Sheesh, they'd rather lose weight than have sex? WTF do they want to lose weight for if they don't want to have sex?

Man, is it any wonder that prostitution is a booming trade...?

Tara Jane says:

I can't believe so many women would sacrifice sex for losing weight. I certainly wouldn't, especially as sex is such a great way to burn off calories :-)

I'm with you Tara Jane. If I had to choose between an hour in the gym and an hour in the sack with a hot date, I know what I'd do!

Geoff says:

Can I be your hot date, Sarah? LOL ;-)
