Shorties have more sex


A study fresh out of The Journal of Sexual Medicine has shown that men who are shorter than 175cm have sex more often than their taller counterparts.

This may come as a surprise to most of use who believe that tall males are more likely to be babe magnets than shorties.

It also shows that younger men, and those who are fit and in optimal health, had more bedpost notches than others.

In short, the profile of the man who had most sex is: shorter than 175 cm, weighs less than 78 kg, has a normal BMI and waist circumference and does not have any metabolic disease.  

And how many times did they have sex a week? 3.5 times.

So the long and short of this story is – if you want more sex, work towards ticking those profile boxes.
