From AOL Health: Obese Woman Lack Sex Partners; More Likely to Get Pregnant Accidentally
Experts interviewed nearly 10,000 French men and women aged 18 to 69 about their sexual experiences and analyzed the results based on their Body Mass Index. . . .

[R]esearchers found obese women had more trouble finding a sexual partner than their normal-weight counterparts, though the same wasn't true for obese men . . .

Nearly 70 percent of fat women reported having a partner who was also heavy, while only about 40 percent of fat men had a similarly proportioned partner. . . .

"Maybe women are more tolerant of tubby husbands than men are of tubby wives," said Kaye Wellings, a professor of sexual and reproductive health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and one of the BMJ study authors.
Hmm, yes, excellent hypothesis — or maybe, when you ask men and women to self-report on their sexual successes or lack thereof, men are more likely to LIE ABOUT IT.
