The research, announced today, is based on data on more than 7, women collected in the 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.

Hogging (sexual practice) - Wikipedia
A healthy sex life is crucial to many women and their partners. This can become more complicated with age and weight. This could be caused by natural decreases in testosterone as we age as well as menopause causing falling estrogen levels. Health conditions such as high cholesterol often correlate with a high body weight. High body fat also leads to an increase of a chemical in the body called SHBG sex hormone binding globulin which binds testosterone, leaving less available to stimulate desire.

Hogging or sweat hogging refers to the practice of groups of men who target overweight or obese women, typically for sexual encounters. Unlike fat fetishists , men who participate in hogging are not necessarily sexually attracted to obese women's bodies; they aim to take advantage of a female's stereotypical low self-esteem or to derive amusement for themselves and their friends by engaging in sexual activities with women who are overweight. The social practice can be undertaken as an individual or group activity, and often includes excessive alcohol consumption , emotional detachment , and degradation of the woman.
