Why supermodels always look peevish
If you believe this, they aren't getting any:
Dr. Sarah Brewer, a sexual health doctor, reports that size zero models have very little if any sex drive. She claims that the bodies of very thin females goes into protective mode by diminishing sex drive and hence the prevention of pregnancy. As models lose weight, Dr. Brewer said that "As soon as body weight plummets below a critical point, the womb shrinks, menstruation stops and your level of sexual interest, fantasy and enjoyment falls." This is most likely to happen to females who lose weight by not eating. Dr. Brewer said this was "nature's way of making sure you don't get pregnant when you donít have the resources." She said that this might explain the "glum stares" of models on the catwalk.
Asked about this, Nicole Richie, size 0, due date 30 December, said, "Are you going to finish that sandwich?"
