How does weight impact a woman's sexdrive/ libido?

Does putting on weight improve or diminish a woman's sex drive? I know higher weights (higher body fat composition) increases the amount of estrogen in a woman's system.

    Depends on where you're at when you "put on weight". If you're too thin, it can diminish sex drive so if you gain weight to become a healthy weight it can help that problem. Obesity can cause the same thing though. It's all about hormones, heart health, and blood sugar. Really depends on your diet and exercise mostly more than weight in of itself.

    Just like with men there's a sweet spot for weight vis-a-vis hormone production. Being very overweight or very underweight can affect this.

    I believe that heaver women seem to have higher sex drives than very thin ones.  Maybe the curvy ones are not afraid to let go of their feelings.

    IME being too skinny completely kills your sex drive. I had zero when I was anorexic.

    Being overweight would probably make me feel self-conscious too.
