Is extra weight a turn-off or a turn-on?

a href=”http://neoneocon.com/2010/07/27/the-does-it-make-me-look-fat-question/”Neo-Neocon has an interesting post/a on the “does it make me look fat?” question. She later mentions aa href=”http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2010/06/16/obesity_tied_to_sex_problems” French study/a that says obese French women get less sex than their male counterparts:br /br /blockquoteObese women were 30 percent less likely than “normal” women to have had sex in the last year, but obese men were just as likely to have had one sexual partner in the last 12 months as average guys. Professor Kaye Wellings, one of the authors of the study, summed it up pretty effectively by saying, “Maybe women are more tolerant of tubby husbands than men are of tubby wives.” /blockquotebr /br /I don’t know about people who are married but it seems to me in the 20’s and younger set, the overweight (maybe not obese) women and girls in the US seem to do pretty well. Guys seem to hang all over the girl spilling out of her jeans with a few extra pounds. I have often wondered if the extra pounds and puffy look signal that the woman is on Depo-Provera or another form of birth control a href=”http://health.usnews.com/health-news/blogs/on-women/2009/03/04/is-your-depo-provera-causing-weight-gain”that packs on the pounds./a Maybe younger guys sense this and go for girls who look like they put out? This is just a theory. br /br /If male, do you care if a woman is overweight?
