Pauline Potter became the world's heaviest living woman
last year, weighing in at a whopping 643 pounds. Now, Potter has her
sights set on losing weight, and she's turned to marathon sex sessions
to help shed the pounds.
In an interview with the UK's Closer magazine, Potter described how her reignited sex life with ex-husband Alex has helped her lose 98 pounds.
“I can’t move much in bed, but I burn 500 calories a session –- it’s great exercise just jiggling around," Potter told Closer.
Potter, who had been consuming 10,000 calories a day, hopes to reach
her goal weight of 532 pounds with the help of Alex. The two have sex up
to seven times each day.
She makes sure to have some fun, too.
“We love foreplay and massages and, as well as full sex, I pleasure Alex, too," she told the magazine. "My bed is strengthened and, although I can’t buy sexy lingerie, I drape a nice sheet over me.”
After meeting online in 2002, the couple married in 2005 and, when
Potter failed to bond with Alex's son, the two split up three years
later. The break-up triggered Potter's weight gain. She began consuming
copious amounts of high-calorie foods and packed on the pounds.
With all the extra weight on her, Potter became depressed. She
contacted the Guinness Book of World Records in hopes that winning the
title of "World's Heaviest Woman" would shame her into losing weight.
When Alex got wind of the publicity surrounding Potter, he decided to visit her and the flame was quickly rekindled.
“Within the first day of being back together we had sex six times in 24 hours," Alex told the Sun last November.
“Even though one of Pauline’s legs weighs more than I do, we’re able to
position her body to make sex enjoyable for both of us."
Alex, who weighs just 140 pounds, does most of the work in the bedroom.
“It’s really dangerous for us to have sex because at any moment the
bed could collapse and one or both of us could be seriously injured or
even killed from the impact," he told the Sun.
But using sex for weight loss is not an unheard of activity.
"Shagging can make you slimmer, if you do enough of it," Dr. Yvonne
Kristin Fulbright, a sex educator, relationship expert, columnist and
founder of Sexuality Source Inc., wrote for Fox News in 2008.
"It can also help the two of you fall for each other all over again.
Requiring no monthly fee — dress code optional – you can 'sexercise'
yourself into shape. This is one gym membership you’ll never want to
Dr. Fulbright, who has contributed to The Huffington Post
and who earned her Ph.D. in International Community Health Studies at
New York University, also writes that a good "sexercise" routine can not
only lead to weight loss, but also to improved blood flow,
strengthening of the heart, better cholesterol, better sleep, more
energy, improved muscle tone and decreased stressed.
While Potter's sex life is speeding at full-throttle, she's also
reined in her eating habits. She no longer eats 10,000 calories per day,
though she still enjoys the occasional Big Mac.
