Let’s Hear it for the Big Girls

This week is hereby declared “body week,” ladies.

I bet someone of you actually followed my advice and went ahead, took some weight off your chest and exhaled Whitney Houston-style over at true body confessions. I’d also bet that some of you were huffing and puffing about your largesse. If you did, then you’ve got some more ‘splainin to do: you’re getting laid more than everybody else!

According to a study conducted by the University of Hawaii Medical School and and Oregon State University, 92 percent of women whose BMI was in the “overweight” range had reported a history of heterosexual intercourse in comparison to 87 percent of women whose BMI was in the “normal” range.

Dr. Kanishero, one of the lead researchers, said: “These results were unexpected and we don’t really know why this is the case.”

Well, duh, Dr. Kanishero, the thin = sexy paradigm is a social construction that not everyone follows. To each their own, ya know? Some like ’em skinny, and a lot, apparently, like ’em thick.

This does not mean, however, that you should head over to Gino’s East, polish off a deep-dish pie, and then ignore your Spinning class in the morning. Unhealthy is unattractive, no doubt about it. But if you’re taking care of yourself – i.e., eating right and doing some form of movement on a daily basis – clearly there are more than a few men who’ve got love for ya.
