Damn, dem fat chicks is gettin' some:  I looked at GSS data to see which single people have the most sex partners in a year: skinny or fat ones.  Here's the mean (it's an index, so it's not quite the same as the mean number of partners):

Mean sex partners score

Males, N = 936
Below average weight 1.44
Average 1.80
Above average 1.44
Considerably above average 1.11

Females, N = 1,099
Below average weight 1.38
Average 1.24
Above average 1.09
Considerably above average 1.50

Average guys do the best, while the really fat ones come in last.  Seems about right.  

But the chicks.  When I say big sluts, I mean big as much as I mean sluts.

    I get the impression that having more body fat gives a woman greater sexual satisfaction. That is, they orgasm easier.

    Orgasm easier doesn't mean more partners. More likely you need a lot of self-control to be thin with a McDonald's on every corner, and that hampers orgasm. Every positive trait has its downside.

    It is funny the fatties are getting so much, though; maybe there's this parallel universe of unattractive people who all date each other which we nerds know nothing of?

    Larger # of sex partners does not necessarily equal better sex life. I'd take a lifetime of monogamy with a 10 over a harem of hundreds of obese women.

    If the thinnest men have the most sex, and the largest women have the most sex. Would that not lead one to believe that skinny guys are going for the larger girls?

    I think you folks are missing the obvious explanation: fat women are sluts because the only way they can get male attention is by putting out promptly. Which doesn't keep men from pumpin' and dumpin' them all the same.

    The bigger the cushion, the smoother the pushin'.

  7. There is some research to suggest that their hormonal balances become skewed by the excess fat, a reason why the pill isn't so effective with the big girls. I wonder whether the fat absorbs the estrogen increasing the relative strength of testosterone. This might also explain why mustachioed women seem to universally be the water buffaloes among us.

    But, you leave out an important point...Fax Chix are sooo goood! They feel good, they support our weight better, they are animals in the sack (who cares about the underlying reason). They are total sensual beings. Now, this DOES transfer into over eating (the ultimate sensual delight for many) but the dividends are great, wet no-holds-barred lovin'.


Is skin tone correlated with job prestige?

The General Social Survey rated the skin darkness of a sample of black Americans, ranging from "very dark brown" to "very lig...
