Women giving up sex to be skinny?
 
A survey conducted shows that women would give up sex and rewards to be skinny. Kinda intense, i think.

The article basically states that a survey found that 50% of women in the US would remain celibate for the summer just so they wouldn't gain an extra 10 pounds. The same survey also found that 73% of American women would give up their cell phones, TVs or computers while 25% would give up a promotion at work just to avoid an extra 10 to 20 pounds!


I hate to admit it, but i would give up sex for the summer to lose 10-20 pounds. Heck, i'd probably give it up for the whole rest of the year.

So, would you guys give up a promotion, sex, or cellphones to stay thin, or get thin?

Ah, but would they give up junk food and being lazy?

Great question!!! I would definitely give up laziness and junk food before I gave up sex. Cell phone, okay, TV, sure, but sex? Probably not!

There was a discussion of this on some morning show this morning, and they were reading viewer comments as to what they'd give up to lose 10 lbs. One woman said "I won't give up anything! That's my problem!"

I'd give up my cell phone but giving up cookies makes a lot more sense. :)

Strange fluff piece. Where's the actual full survey? Was it all about wishful thinking?

None of that -- sex, promotion at work, cel, etc -- is anything that make a serious impact on weight loss.

Isn`t sex considered exercise? :carrot::o

charmtime 08-14-2010 08:55 PM

Yes it is great exercise and seriously....WHO would give it up??

i don't see it as that big as a stretch of the imagination to give up sex, honestly. but then again, some women are actually happy with their sex life.

yeah....I couldn't give up sex. Thankfully thats not a requirement to lose weight or I'd stay fat forever.....

that makes better sense.. If they want to be thin so bad they'll give up something, then give up the booze, junk food, overeating, etc...

It is kinda amazing giving up sex, tv, your cell phone is EASIER than giving up food. Although I wouldn't have a problem giving up all that, and I'm single so that much easier for me... but food is always a different story.

Crazy, especially considering one of my big reasons to lose weight is to have more and better sex!!

For real!!! If you're having a great sex life, why do you NEED to lose 10 pounds??? LOL

If I was having sex, I wouldn't give it up to lose 10 pounds. Cellphone...no. TV, yeah. Promotion, maybe (I'm at the highest level I'd like to go right now anyway and didn't put in for the last chance at a promotion). But sex...no way.

Lori Bell 08-15-2010 09:36 PM

I don't know, I think if someone told me I'd never gain back ANY of the weight I've lost by not having sex, I'd say GREAT...sign me up!!! Never been a big sex person...I've got enough kids, and that's about all it's good for anyway... ;)
