The Better Your Sex Life, The Bigger Your Paycheck

So far we know that a good night’s sleep, exercise, a little enthusiastic consent, and yes, grilled cheese sandwiches can all improve your sex life. And now, it turns out, a little bump in the paycheck could help, too. (More money = more makeouts?)

According to a new report by Anglia Ruskin University in the UK, “those who get it on two or three times a week earn 4.5 percent more than their less coitus-inclined colleagues,” reports The Daily Beast. The study, which followed 7,500 participants, uncovered a rather strong correlation between behaviors that succeed in the bedroom and the boardroom, so to speak, stating that “contemporary social analysis suggests that health, cognitive and non-cognitive skills and personality are important factors that affect wage level.”  

Dr. Nick Drydakis, who led the study, explains: “People need to love and be loved, sexually and non-sexually, by others. In the absence of these elements, people may become susceptible to loneliness, social anxiety and depression—all factors that can affect their working life.” 

Now of course, this doesn’t mean that spending all day every day between the sheets is going to guarantee that promotion, but a little extra fun with fornication could put you in just the right mood to nail that presentation come Monday morning. It’s certainly worth a try! (Here are a few tips to get you started.)
