Recent research has revealed that lesbians tend to have a higher body mass than heterosexual women. This may be due in part to less exercise as well as a rebellion against societal pressures for women to remain thin. However, keeping your weight at a reasonable level is vital to your long-term health. Working out and eating right isn't just for supermodels and the sexually oppressed! Take care of yourself so that you and your partner can enjoy a long life together, free of the increased risk of heart disease and other obesity-related ailments.
