QUESTION: If you had to choose between more sex or more money, which would you pick?
Take your time. It’s a tough choice, I know. Let’s face it, sex and money are two of the greatest motivators out there. People go to huge lengths for either and often do very dumb things for them. Especially sex! People do really crazy things when it comes to sex.
Time’s up! Which is it? Sex or money? Which would you prefer to have more of?
Yes, it’s true! You don’t have to decide and this is backed by science. That’s because researchers are saying that people who have more sex make more money. Add to this, what we already know about how drinking a better quality of coffee in the morning improves your productivity and we can only confirm one thing:
A recently released paper comes from a year-long study which found an unmistakable link between how often people had sex and how much money they made. It showed that people who had sex four or more times a week earned higher incomes than those who weren’t having as much fun between the sheets.
Here are the facts: The paper is written by Nick Drydakis, a senior economics lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University in England and fellow at the private labor market research group, Institute for the Study of Labor. His results are based on data gathered during January 2008 to December 2008 in the Greek Behavioural Study, where around 7,500 households were surveyed.
What he found was that there was a noted link between how much sex people had and how much money they made – especially the ones ranging between 26 to 50 years old. Best of all, what Drydakis found was that this was a benefit everyone could enjoy. Level of education was not a major contributor and neither was sexual preference.
We can all get laid and get paid! Sweet!!!
In a nutshell, the results showed that people who got their freak on frequently were happier, healthier, more productive and less depressed and that translated into being a harder (snicker) worker. While he does note the connection, however, Drydakis isn’t saying it’s a surefire thing. Only that there is a connection.
I can work with that.
