Scientists say that being fat can be bad for the bedroom, especially if you are a woman. European researchers found obese women had more trouble finding a sexual partner than their male counterparts and were four times as likely to have an unplanned pregnancy.

Fat men also reported a higher rate of erectile dysfunction.

Experts say problems faced by obese people are probably due to a combination of physical problems linked to obesity as well as low self-esteem and social prejudices.
