The male hormone testosterone – not exclusively in men, women also have testosterone but in relatively small measure – may not work properly in men if they gain weight. When this hormone comes into contact with fat tissue, an enzyme in the fat cells changes it into the female hormone oestrogen.

This confuses the brain, which stops the hormone doing its job properly. Worse still, oestrogen promotes more body fat storage.

Happy love-making.
