Do Overweight Women Skip Sex? Fat Chance!

Overweight andhave more sex than skinny types, a new study suggests.
The research, announced today, is based on data on more than 7,000 women collected in the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth. The new analysis looked at the relationship between body mass index and sexual orientation, age of first intercourse, number of partners and frequency of intercourse.
The results seem to contradict stereotypes that overweight and obese women have less sex. If anything, the researchers said, the opposite seems to be true.
Researchers suspect the stereotype could mean overweight women get different messages than thinner women from physicians regarding pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease prevention, and that their sexual behavior might therefore vary.
"Some medical practitioners may not do appropriate follow-up with women who are overweight; they might assume they aren't having sex unless they are told otherwise," said Oregon State University Professor Marie Harvey, a specialist in women's sexual and reproductive health issues.
"Our analysis demonstrated that obese and overweight women do not differ significantly in some of the objective measures of sexual behavior compared to women of normal weight," said Harvey's colleague, Bliss Kaneshiro, an assistant professor at the School of Medicine at the University of Hawaii. "This study indicates that all women deserve diligence in counseling on unintended pregnancy and STD prevention, regardless of body mass index."
The survey relied on self-reports, however, and other studies have found that people often lie in sex surveys. The results were detailed in the September issue of the journal . A different study in 2006 concluded that obesity, as well as smoking, does curb sex.
Kaneshiro said the data showed that overweight women were more likely to report having sexual intercourse with a man, even when researchers controlled for age, race and type of residence. Ninety-two percent of overweight women reported having a history of sexual intercourse with a man, as opposed to 87 percent of women with a normal body mass index."These results were unexpected and we don't really know why this is the case," Kaneshiro said

UK President Lee Todd said he was alerted about the incident by a professor who was riding his bicycle to campus around 7:30 a.m.
The effigy was found on Rose Street, near the university’s Mining and Minerals building.
Officers with both the University Police Department and the Lexington Police Department are investigating the incident, and the Secret Service has been notified, Todd said.
Todd said it is not known whether a student or someone else was responsible.
“It’s a very embarrassing situation that has happened on our campus, regardless of who did it,” he said.
Todd referred to the incident as a “despicable act.”
“We certainly believe in political expression, just not in this form,” he said.
Anyone with information about the incident is being asked to call the UK police department at (859) 257-1616.

I personally will be voting for Barack Obama in the upcoming presidential election and I'm proud of it. I'm glad that some people are seeing what I think is best for their country. Come on conservatives/republicans!

This guy ate a 15 pound burger (plus 5 pounds of toppings) in under five hours. I was like, holy crap. I LOVE burgers. Very very much. But I think, I would want to barf. Anybody who knows me, knows I don't like too much meat. I had a Thickburger from Hardee's once and I couldn't even get through it. I like my meat proportionate to my bread and veggies on my burger. I don't think I'm a burger snob, I just like what I like. This being said, there is no way I would even attempt to eat this thing. Not even for the $400, three t-shirts, and gift certificate that this guy got. Keep your meaty hamburger. I'll stick with my rodeo burger from Burger King. Now THAT'S perfection.

I was informed by J today that it's Paddington Bear's 50th Birthday!!! I LOVE Paddington and there are so many memories wrapped up in him. He made me love London and marmalade. Seriously, after Paddington, I would want to eat Marmalade sandwiches so i could be just like him. But this is another memory that I want to hold on to. Happy Birthday Paddington!

So it seems that there has been this huge fascination with bacon on the internet lately. My one true love is ham but I do enjoy a good piece of bacon. I was listen to one of my podcasts Jawbone Radio and they had a whole show about bacon. I am really really craving bacon. Len even made a haiku about bacon that will become my excuse for eating bacon.
Sizzling in the pan.
Ready to give heart attack.
Damn, you smell good though.
Yea, I might have to say that haiku every time I sit down to a nice steaming pile of bacon. I used to like bacon behind sausage but after so many disappointing times with sausage, bacon has replaced my second place. So join in with me and say, Yay Bacon!
So I am so proud of my sister! Next thing you know she'll be base jumping off of the Statue of Liberty. Grats Dee!

And here's a link to another oldie but goodie:
"I'm holding the mic like a grudge!" Great stuff
Here's another one....video along with link to the lyrics here. I love how rappers back then could say so much with so little words and such small fanfare. Videos didn't need to cost millions of dollars to get a point across.
I remember this video!!! pure hawtness

I just wanted to give a B-day shout out to my wonderful, beautiful mother. I won't tell her age but trust me, she doesn't look the age she is. Lucky me for having such great genes. I love her and even though she's not in town at the moment I just wanted to wish her a happy birthday. You are the best mom in the entire world!!! *hugs and kisses*

I'm not worried about his driving ability. It's the other nuts out there that I don't trust (man I sound like my dad.) I am trying not to worry, I just want him home safe. I know it's just recent events that have me like this but I'll be worried about him all the same, as I know he would be worried about me. A part of my soul lives with him. I want to be sure that stays intact. It's going to be bad enough not waking up beside him.

So J surprised me with tickets to Mama Mia on the 12th of November. How excited am I? Soooooo excited!!! I totally wasn't excpecting him to get them for me. And the best thing is...after we get done with that, we get to go get Wrath of the Lich King and have our four day weekend. I am so excited and I just really really really want it to get here. He is so loving and thoughtful. I love it! So now I just have to sit on my hands and wait until then. Can I make it? I'm not sure. I love you baby!
