According to Regan, P (2006), the weight of a person is at times perceived as a very important issue of his/her sexuality and is thought to be a significant determinant of his/ her personal sexual experiences (p. 1803). According to her, researchers in this field of body weight and sexual relationship have extensively focused on illnesses due to eating disorders. However, very little is known about people staunchly believes about the general issue of weight and sexuality.
In her research work, Regan, P (2006), found that many people believe that, if a man is obese, then his sexual experiences are almost similar to those of a normal man. Further, of those who took part in the research study perceived obese women as being less sexually attractive, with little sexual skills, little warmth and not responsive. In addition, many argued that an obese woman is less likely to have the desire as well as number sexual behaviors as a normal woman.
One’s body image can have a contribution towards his/her sexuality. According to Regan, even in 1960’s people tried their level best to understand sexuality but all considerations narrowed down to body matters i.e. what the person feels about his/her body size, weight, and shape.

Statement of the problem
Sexuality and body image are two terms which go hand in hand. One’s body image focuses on our perceptions about our body shapes and weight. An important aspect in sexuality is that, the body image of a person is largely due to effects of beauty ideals which are specific in time as well as place (Regan, P 2006). In ancient times, a huge body size was said to the ideal one but nowadays skinny body type is held in high esteem. One other important thing human being should come to terms with is that no one is born with a bad body shape but that it is us who learn to appreciate body shapes and sizes. According to Regan, P (2006), when one is growing up, his/her feelings about his body shape determines his/her level of sexual ability in future. To her, if you feel bad about your body shape, then you will have very little to celebrate on in terms of sexual desires.
Importance of the problem
