As if you needed another excuse to have as much sex as humanly possible, it turns out that sex has real benefits for your career. News flash, right? We all know the basic benefits of getting laid, such as a confidence boost and the extra skip in your step, but Inc. Magazine delved into the specifics of what a vibrant sex life can do for your career.
Research from the Institute for the Study of Labor showed that people who have sex at least four times per week – yes, four – make more money than those who don’t. The mood elevation and health benefits from frequent sex increase work performance, leading to higher income. So, the next time your boss asks you why your work performance is suffering, just ask him if he can set you up with a corporate eHarmony account and bang your way to a promotion.
Of course, frequent sex also reduces stress, increases your life expectancy, releases immune system-boosting hormones, can make you look younger, and even relieve pain. Definitely a plus if you’re regularly hitting happy hour or just hitting your own bottle, Dr. Perry Cox-style. It’s all about striking a balance.
Finally, and most interestingly, a recent survey showed that entrepreneurs generally had more sex after ditching their old jobs, showing that entrepreneurship is not only empowering to your wallet, but also to your fun zone.
