Well, you can stop asking yourself now.
Scientists in California claim that there's a correlation between a person's weight, height, and the number of sexual partners you have.
Researchers studied 60,058 men and women, and it showed that very short folks have fewer sexual partners as compared to people of average height. Underweight men have also had lesser "FuBus," according to the study.
Another thing of note: Men of average to extremely tall height have between one to three more sexual partners than shorter men.
The lead author, Dr. David Frederick, said: "Research has repeatedly shown than women prefer men who are relatively taller than they are. It is possible that for most women, there is a certain minimal threshold of height, after which they will consider a male as a potential sex partner, and thus men above that height will end up with similar numbers of sex partners."
Additionally, the median number of sex partners for men and women aged 30 to 44 was eight. Fifty-eight percent of men and 56 percent of women reported more than five partners, while 29 percent of men and 23 percent of women have more than 14 partners.
The study also found out that overweight people have the most sexual partners.
But Dr. Frederick explains: "Although it may be initially surprising that more overweight men reported the highest number of partners, it is important to note that the medical classification of overweight does not necessarily map onto social perceptions of overweight."
Which means you don’t have to trade gym hours for lunch and dinner buffest just yet—only a little bit.
