New research provides an additional benefit of frequent sexual activity – higher earnings. So says a Greek researcher who reports that people who have frequent sexual activity made about five percent more money than those who have less.
The findings are based on a year-long survey of 7,500 Greek households, from January through December in 2008. The researcher stresses that frequent sexual activity doesn’t cause a higher salary, only that there’s a correlation between the two. He theorizes that more sex makes people healthier and happier or that a person with a higher income may attract more sexual activity. The correlation was most evident among people between the ages of 25 and 50 years old.
The research also noted that the increased sexual activity link to higher income was the same for heterosexuals as it was for homosexuals. It also found that wages were higher for sexually active earners even if they had impaired health.
The study’s author says the findings are relevant as they pertain to a variety of factors impacting income levels, including health, cognitive and non-cognitive skills and personality. He also suggests that sexual activity is an indicator of other quality of life metrics like health, happiness and well-being.
