5 Ways Sex Can Boost Your Career

Ways Sex Can Boost Your Career
bigpicture

Sex not only makes people happy, but getting it on with your partner  helps you get on in your career as well. Studies have shown that enjoying sex once a week gives you the same feel-good factor as a raise of $50K per year.

Also, a healthy sex life can lead to more promotions, up to 31% higher productivity and 3 times greater productivity. Apparently, there are some outside-of-the-bedroom perks to having sex, and these can help you make more clear-headed decisions and generally enhance your 9-5 life.

Here are 5 ways sex can help you advance your career according to Inc.:

#1 People Who have Regular Sex Get Higher Salaries

Yes, having more sex could mean a higher paycheck. According to reports, people who have sex four times or more a week, earn higher salaries than those who are less active in the bedroom. So having more sex correlates with earning more money. This is explained by the fact that  having a sexually active life makes you both happier and healthier, which in turn leads to more enthusiasm at work, higher positive mood, higher self-esteem, better decisions and less discrimination. The final result is more job satisfaction that then equals higher paychecks.

#2 Sex Kills Stress and Boosts Health

Sex acts as a significant stress reliever that results in better well-being and fewer sick days. According to the book, Your Doctor is Wrong by Sharon Norling, frequent orgasms can prolong life expectancy by three to eight years. Another study by Arizona State University revealed that “having sex with a partner correlated with lower negative mood and higher positive mood the following day in middle-aged women”.

#3 Sex can Boost your Immune System

During sexual intercourse, the hormone Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is released, and some of the key health benefits of this system-boosting hormone include alleviating depression. In addition to this, people in their 40s who admitted to having 50% or more sex than their peers who don’t, seemed to be seven to 13 years younger than their real age in the eyes of a panel of strangers who judged them.

#4 No more Office Migraines

Thanks to Oxytocin, another hormone released during sex, migraines at work can become a thing of the past. Otherwise called the “love hormone”, oxytocin does quite well at keeping you healthier in the office by alleviating pain.

#5 Entrepreneurship can Improve your Sex Life

Diving into the entrepreneurial field not only enhances your career prospects, it also increases sexual activity. According to research, 14% of business owners reported engaging in sex after finishing their 9-5 job. So having more sex can improve both your physical and mental health that could then lead to higher wages, while pursuing an entrepreneurial path can lead to more sex.
