Another reason to have more sex… A healthy sex life can do wonders for our physical and emotional well-being, but according to recent research, having frequent sex may also mean a bigger paycheck.
People who have sex four or more times a week make more money than those who have less sex, according to a new study.
Researchers looked at data from 7,500 people, ages 26 to 50, in Greece and found that the wages of those who had sex four or more times a week were 5 percent higher than those who didn’t have sex as often, CBS News reported.
People who weren’t having sex made 3.2 percent less money than those who were having sex, according to the study recently published by the Institute for the Study of Labor, an economic research institution in Germany.
“People need to love and be loved (sexually and non-sexually) by others. In the absence of these elements, many people become susceptible to loneliness, social anxiety, and depression that could affect their working life,” study author Nick Drydakis, an economics lecturer at Angila Ruskin University in Cambridge, England, said in an email to CBS News.
