People who decide to lose weight don't do so because it's easy and fun. They do it because the extra pounds reduce (at least in their opinion) the quality of life. The study would be way more accurate if random people were compared to random heavier people. In stead we've got random people compared to self-selected unhappy heavier people.

Very good point, WildOrchid. The element of self-selection skews a lot of survey work.

Damn. My libido hasn't suffered in the least because I'm fat. If it has been diminished, then I fear to think what it would be if I were skinny!

Is this really surprising considering most of the people going into weight loss treatments are suffering from self-esteem issues anyway? Sexual satisfaction and freedom are directly related to self-esteem-- both good and bad. But if you are already self-conscious about your body image, it seems like a no-brainer.

It is hard for a heavier person to put them selfs into certain positions. It is hard to feel everything that a smaller person does during sex. I have been on both sides of the spectrum and felt more in my younger days when I was thinner, then I do now. There is a huge battle trying to lose the weight, it is health issues, self esteem issues, and personal issues with the extra weight.
