Friend of the show Carlos sent me this article the other day (because I’m a dad and I have a body…my friends think it’s hilarious) from Brobible. Men With Dad Bods Are Having More Sex Than Other Dudes, According To Science!
Well isn’t that exciting. They broke down the study as reported on Yahoo. (Pulished in the journal of Evolutionary Psychology)
For the study, researchers analyzed the results of an online survey of more than 60,000 heterosexual men and women with a mean age of 37.
The height and BMI of participants directly impacted how many partners they had. Among the findings:
-Only men classified as “very short” had a lower median number of sexual partners (five), compared to taller men (seven).
-Men who were overweight and obese had the most sexual partners (eight), followed by those with a normal weight (six).
-Underweight men had the least sexual partners (four).
While the findings that overweight men had more sexual partners than normal weight men (eight and seven partners, verses six, respectively) sound surprising, Frederick says it’s what he expected to find. “Overweight and normal men fit the conventional ideals for men,” he says. “Men are expected to appear tough or athletic. Very slender men can face stigma for not appearing powerful.”
My friend Haley speculated on the reason why this might be: Basically men with “dad bods” are more excepting of “normal” female body types! Hence more sex! Realistic standards equals more sex for everyone! Long live the dad bod!!
