(Scroll down for video) Here is one more reason to have sex more often, it will help you make more money.
Over the years, studies have shown different benefits of having sex. Some studies suggest that having sex could lower your stress level, blood pressure, and even help you burn calories.
New research from the Institute for the Study of Labor in Germany revealed that people who have frequent sex make more money.
“Employees who have sex over four times a week earn almost 5 percent more than those who do not. They also have better emotional stability,” study author Nick Drydaki said.
People who have sex more often tend to be happier and healthier, which contributes to them being more positive and perform better in the office.
“People need to love and be loved, sexual and nonsexual,” Drydakis said. “In the absence of these elements, many people become susceptible to loneliness, social anxiety and depression, which could affect their working lives,” he said.
Early economic studies have shown that self-esteem, cognitive functioning and reasoning ability, all correlate with income. The healthier the person, the more money they tend to earn.
The link between sex and wages was highest among people aged between 26 and 50.
The researchers noted that having sex often will not necessarily get you a pay raise. But earning more money could lead to more sex, they suggested.
“For example, higher wages can increase the value and attractiveness of a person on the dating market. For those who are already in a relationship, higher wages can afford the ability to buy better gifts that are then acknowledged and thanked for through sex,” researchers wrote.
