Would You Rather Be Skinny or Have Sex?
A new study finds women would rather give up sex than gain 10 pounds!
We all want to be skinny, and we all want to have good sex. But, if you had to pick one over the other, which would you choose?
Nutrisystem posed this question to a group of American men and women and came up with some surprising results. For women, weight loss trumps sex.
According to the study, 52 percent of women and 25 percent of men would rather give up sex for a whole summer than gain 10 pounds. (Somehow, it doesn’t surprise us that 75 percent of men chose the opposite).
Nutrisystem’s Chairman and CEO, Joe Redling, says the study illustrates our obsession with being skinny. “The fact of the matter is, America is obsessed with dieting and weight loss, but the majority of Americans aren’t eating healthier or getting thinner.
It’s true that you usually have to work harder to shed pounds than to find someone to share a bed with, but this is some sad news for sex, ladies. We wonder if the study participants took into account the fact that sex is a form of exercise — so you could technically use it as a weight loss tool! (Fox News)
Tell us: what would you choose: no sex for one whole summer or gain 10 pounds?
