A little more activity in the bedroom might just make you one of the highest-earning members in the boardroom.
That was what Dr. Nick Drydakis of Anglia Ruskin University found in a new study, after analysing data from 7,500 respondents.
The study concluded people who have sex two or three times a week, regardless of their physical or mental health, earn 4.5% higher wages than people who have sex less often.
“Maslow’s Need Hierarchy Theory claims that the happier and more fulfilled individuals are in their lives, the more productive and successful they will be in their work, translating to higher wages,” Dr. Drydakis stated in a press release.
“The theory concludes that 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.”
Echoing the direct co-relation between sex and wages, the report added that sexually-active employees who are health-impaired earn 1.5% more money than people with similar symptoms who are not sexually active.
