Sex helps ‘World’s Fattest Woman’ shed 100 pounds

I’ve gained a little weight lately and I thought it was due to hitting middle age.

But, a recent article I read about a woman who lost 100 pounds by having lots of sex has me rethinking that theory.

Clearly, the solution is to have sex seven times a day like Pauline Potter, who was once dubbed the “World’s Fattest Woman” by Guinness, a company that at one time created both delicious beer and a book of world records.

Potter, no relation to Harry, alleges her sex life became magical after her ex-husband, who had read about her record weight of more than 700 pounds, decided to visit her.

The Closer Online article states “they now make love up to seven times in one day, despite [140-pound] Alex risking suffocation if Pauline gets on top.”

Wiry Alex allegedly does “most of the work in the bedroom,” but Pauline says “it’s great exercise just jiggling around.”

The 47-year-old Californian began binge eating Big Macs when she and Alex split in 2008. She gained so much weight she could no longer walk.

But in the seven months since Alex started visiting, she’s lost 100 pounds and can now stand up under her own power.

Alex, who visits eight days a month, needs to “visit more so he can help me shed the pounds quicker,” said Pauline, who hopes to drop down to 530 pounds so she can move to Arizona with her once and perhaps future husband.

Hopefully there’s some truth to this diet plan, else I may have to consider the old fashioned way of proper diet and exercise.

Alex is the one I actually feel sorry for, and HE apparently has a screw loose. The big question, and even one hard to comprehend is, how is it even possible to have sex with a 700lb. woman? (Without going into details, of course!)

Someone needs to forward this to Rosie O’Donnell and Oprah. Then someone needs to find people to have sex with either one of them. EEEWWWWWW!

The smell in their bedroom must be rancid…. They have sex 7 times a day, and out of 7 it takes him six times to find the treasure, with all that flab. YUCK!!!!!!!

I don’t believe this. Most women would be sore after 3 or 4 times in one day. I don’t think his stick was dipping in the right place. He probably just found different folds of fat. I also doubt that she showered after each time. So this is really a disgusting story, if at all true to begin with.

one’s obsessed with eating and the other with sex. do you think she’s eating a big mac during sex? new meaing to two all beef patties with special sauce.

Sex is good exercise (although less so if you’re just lying there), but she also says in the article she’s cut down her caloric intake as well, so that helps too.

…after seeing her photos there ain’t no way anybody could have “sex” with that body. Maybe a hand job or BJ for him, but ain’t no penetration going into that…

I’m wondering, if she lost 100 pounds from lying down; how many pounds did her partner lose; he was doing all the work!?!

that is a big fat lie. :) there is absolutely no evidence to back this up.

she wishes she did it seven times a day. What man in his right mind would want to be traumatized seven times a day?

Let’s face it, if you’re having sex 7 times in one day, there’s not much time left for eating.

All joking aside

I would believe it, because an active sex life with a regular partner was part of my weight loss success. After I left my husband, who had no sex drive, I dropped 100lb in less than a year. I didn’t so much change my diet but as time went on I naturally ate less, but I finally had a regular sex life, was working a physically demanding job and going out 2-3x a week dancing. After talking to my doctor about my weight, his comments while I was married and explained my marital situation, his exact words were, “Too bad you can’t just have regular sex, it’s the best workout there is. You have your cardiovascular activity, it helps keep you limber and works muscles in your torso that don’t normally receive much attention in your every day life.”

The years I have been celibate after my 2 years of an active sex life, I gained weight again, luckily not all of it, but when I’m having regular sex, the weight falls off. Not to mention all of the endorphin’s, which make you happier. All the nay-sayers can think what they want, but an active sex life is important to your diet and exercise and a key factor to staying healthy.
