Big Girls Ride Too!

A recent study may contradict widely held stereotypes that overweight and obese women are not as sexually active as other women. If anything, the researchers concluded the opposite seems to be true.  Mount up married mommas.  Big girls ride too!

Results show that overweight women were more likely to report having intercourse during the reporting period.  The qualification of ‘overweight’ was determined based on a subject’s weight versus the body mass index.  The difference of 5% between the overweight subjects’ and the at weight subjects’ frequency of sex is enough to hang our hats on…  Big girls ride too!

The lead researchers report being astonished at the results.  That’s because they are probably a size 2!  Okay…not really.  Be nice.

The importance of this study is not to validate being overweight.  Losing weight becomes necessary to secure our health and not to satisfy inappropriate social norms of body size and type.  In a society that memorializes the abnormal as normal, larger mommas struggle to keep a balanced sense of self and what is good or bad, needless or needful for them.

Instead, the importance of this study is to help reorient the thinking of doctors who may have preconceived notions of a big woman’s sex life and, thus, not ask appropriate questions when giving them medical care.

This study was awarded first prize at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ annual meeting this year. The abstract can be viewed at: http://www.greenjournal.org/cgi/content/abstract/112/3/586

God is good.  The devil is a liar.  Oh…did I mention that big girls ride too?
