The heaviest woman in the world is using an unusual method to shed serious pounds - sex.
“I sweat off loads of calories,” 600-pound Pauline Potter revealed in an interview with UK magazine Closer this month. “I call it ‘sexercise.’”
Potter, 47, became the Guiness World Record holder for heaviest woman last year when she weighed in at 700 pounds, but she’s managed to lose nearly 100 pounds in the last year by rekindling her romance with her ex-husband Alex.
Married for three years, they split in 2008 but reunited when he heard about her Guiness title last year. It didn’t take long for them to land in bed together - repeatedly.
“I hadn’t had sex in three years, but we did it six times!” she told the magazine, adding they now make love between two and seven times per day. “He took charge as I couldn’t move much, but he was so attentive.”
Though their relationship is long distance at the moment - Potter lives in California while Alex is in Arizona - he has made extended trips to see her so they can continue their marathon sex sessions.
“I can’t move much in bed, but I burn 500 calories a session. It’s great exercise just jiggling around,” she told the magazine. “My bed is strengthened and, although I can’t buy sexy lingerie, I drape a nice sheet over me.”
But Alex still thought her size was sexy - despite the occasional logistical issue.
“It’s hard to position her and find her pleasure spots as she has a lot of fat in the pelvic area,” he told the magazine. “But it turns me on knowing she’s satisfied. Although once, when she got on top, I couldn’t breathe.”
