The Better Your Sex Life, The Bigger Your Paycheck


So far we know that a good night’s sleep,
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

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.)
