Can Losing Weight Help Improve Your Sex Life?

Hi #GYNEGirls! It’s me- your FAV OBGYN Dr. Drai. May I ask you a Question?… Are you unhappy in the bedroom?  If you are, there are likely a number of reasons for your unhappiness.  Despite the possibility of a number of causes, do you think that your weight may be to blame?  If you are overweight or obese, it may be.

Since you now know that your weight may have an impact on your sex life, you may be curious what weight loss can do for you.  It is really possible to improve your intimacy with weight loss?  Unfortunately, the answer isn’t always the same, as it tends to vary.  Weight loss and its impact on your sex life will honestly all depend on you and your own personal situation.

For starters, many women make the mistake of believing that their lost weight resulted in better sex.  It can, but did you know that many women are just deceiving themselves?  Being intimate with your partner may feel better and result in more pleasure, but it honestly may be due to an increase your self-confidence levels.  Women who lose weight do see an increase in self-confidence.  This extra confidence often allows women to enjoy it better.  What does this mean?  It means that the sex may be the sale ole sex you have been receiving for years, but it just feels better now.

Another impact that your ability to lose weight may have on your sex life is your ability to experiment in the bedroom.  Experimentation is a key to keeping your relationship “hot.”  One type of experimentation that you may want to try is a new sex position.  Has your weight previously kept you from being creative?  If so, now is your time to shine.  Show your partner that you now have moves that you never even thought of trying before.

In keeping with experimenting in the bedroom, it is important to know that experimentation comes in a number of different formats.  One other format is that of role playing.  As previously stated, weight loss gives may women confidence.  You may now have the confidence to have sex with the lights on, wear sexy lingerie, or a full-blown costume.  These large steps can do wonders for your relationship, both inside and outside of the bedroom.

It is also important to take your partner into consideration.  Unfortunately, this is not something that many women take into consideration.  If you were to lose weight, there is a good chance your partner will like the improvement.  Yes, your husband most likely loves and worships you now, but there is still something attractive about women who take steps to better themselves, especially in terms of appearance.  If you do decide to lose weight, let your husband know that you lost the weight for them and to better your sex life.  They will not only be proud of you, but they may also be turned on.

Since there is a good chance that your sex life will improve with weight loss, you may be interested in starting a weight loss plan today.  If so, go ahead and do so.  Use your need for improved intimacy in the bedroom as a source of motivation.  When you can envision yourself thin and in the bedroom having an amazing time with your husband, you may find it much easier to lose weight, as well as exciting.  Speaking of which, remember that a healthy diet and a strong exercise plan are needed.

The more weight you have to lose, the more your sex life may improve.  With that said, be sure to use your best judgment.  If you are average or thin, weight loss is not needed and can be dangerous.  If you are seriously overweight, consider talking to your doctor before starting a new diet or exercise plan.  Losing weight to improve your sex life is important, but don’t put your body at risk just receive extra satisfaction in the bedroom.
