Mods, this is a serious question, so please don't shut me down! After losing a great deal of weight, I'm looking forward to better sex. I'd like to hear what changes or benefits you noticed after losing weight. Some are obvious, like confidence, energy, and stamina. What else??

    You can handle a wider range of positions.

    More flexibility and more strength that comes with going to the gym should lead to more choices in your sex life.

    Confidence, better/different positions, and, for the fellas, the penis usually appears bigger because there isn't as much fat in the area.

    Many men experience an increase in length. Some also, depending on blood pressure changes, experience stronger erections as well.

  • After I lost 50 lbs before i was on mfp my sex life did get better. I was more limber, and that paired with yoga ment I could try new positions that I found satisfied both me and my partner. I also felt like I "recovered" faster, so we could go multiple times if I felt the urdge.

    at my highest weight, sex seemed like exersize at times, and I avoided it.

    No more!

    Now if I lost the last few pounds, it might turn into Cirque de Soleil over here

    :P

    Well, with a stronger core and stronger legs, I am able to do some pretty awesome stuff for as long as I want to. New positions are definitely fun too!

    From a mental perspective, my self esteem had a HUGE boost. I no longer feel disgusted with myself, which was a major turn off.

    From a physical perspective.....I'll just use the word 'bendy' and leave it at that.

    Penetration can be deeper without all the fat in the way.

    I feel more sexy, and my husband loves it. Before I started my lifestyle change I didn't have the confidence to feel sexy in my own skin. Now with losing the weight, I am feeling so confident. I dress better, look better, eat better, everything is just better including more and better sex.

    For me my drive has gone through the roof to the point that and I quote "what 6 times last night/this morning wasn't enough?" - I heard that Sunday morning :laugh: :blushing: , plus there's new positions, increased stamina (see first bonus) and a major boost in confidence.
  • I want to be touched......looked at... and felt all the time. Even if it is by myself.. My sex drive has went thru the ceiling !

    I'd agree, increased drive and you cant really underestimate the boost in self confidence, lights on, lights off, in the house, on the lawn, who cares?!
