How can weight loss affect a man's sex drive?

Mark Moyad
Urology
Just a few pounds of weight loss or removing a few inches from your waist can increase a man's testosterone immediately and increase his sex drive and erectile function. Yes, by the way, it has a tendency to do the same thing for some women.

Experts who love to push expensive prescription options and over-the-counter (OTC) pills, pills, pills and more pills as a solution for sexual dysfunction or sex drive tend to discount the benefits that can be achieved by simply losing weight. This technique is cheap, has no negative side effects (unless you count that losing weight is always going to be a pain in the ass itself) and should always be a part of any sexual enhancement program.
