We'll admit it: The above headline does sound a bit like a gigolo job posting. A new study from Anglia Ruskin University in the U.K. has found that men and women who have sex twice a week earn more money than those who have none at all. Four-and-a-half percent more, to be exact. In addition, the researchers found that men who aren't having sex earn 1.3 percent less that those who are.
The study, which looked at data from 7,500 Greek nationals, also found that employees with health problems are less sexually active, leading researchers to suggest that more sex equals happier workers. The results, however, did not establish whether more sex actually improved work performance, or whether those who are getting lucky at home also just happen to get lucky during bonus time. Either way, we should all be having more sex.
