Apart from making the penis appear smaller, obesity causes infections due to warm and moist conditions.

Sex works wonders for those trying to have a healthy mind as it brings down anxiety and relaxes depression. It is also known to be an effective workout which helps with physical fitness. Similarly a sound fitness regime and running have been found to be factors that can boost a person's sex drive by increasing confidence and making people feel better about their physique.

Men are particularly concerned about the size of the penis along with having a stronger erection and lasting longer in bed. But experts suggest that being overweight is the worst thing one can do to their member, since not only does it make the penis look smaller, it also contributes to several disorders.

There are several overweight men facing a condition called ‘buried penis’ where the member is buried under flesh and skin as the area around the penis grows and covers the penis in fat. The area tends to become warm and moist and is eventually vulnerable to infections.

An inability to pull foreskin back due to obesity also leads to a situation where several issues cannot be detected and in many cases men were unable to notice a cancer growing. This issue can be solved by circumcision but for obese men the skin just falls back and creates another foreskin.

While weight loss seems like the only way out, in many cases it doesn’t help much since men are still left with excess skin and tissue that keeps causing trouble.
