He said there were two main possible reasons for the 'waist effect'.
One was that women's abdominal body fat decreased their own desire on a hormonal level.
Another reason was that the man simply found slimmer women more attractive.
He said: 'The most compelling explanation was that slimmer women are, on average, more sexually attractive to men (resulting in more frequent sex, stronger erections, and greater satisfaction).
To assess the link between women's waist size and her perceived sexual attractiveness to her partner - and their general sexual satisfaction - they rated a man's sexual function using a questionnaire called the International Index of Erectile Function.
Men who suffered the least performance issues were younger, had younger partners and their partner had a slimmer waist. Lead researcher Stuart Brody, professor of psychology at the University of West Scotland, said it was 'noteworthy' that a woman with a slim waist was regarded as more attractive in all measures of sexual function independent of both partners' age.
