Do you want to be more productive at work? Have more sex. That’s right, you read it correctly. Sex will give you the extra boost you need to get your work done more efficiently. (Just don’t have sex at work — that’s a no-no.) In addition, an active sex life might also help you earn more money. Sounds like a good deal doesn’t it? Here are some ways that having sex can improve your life.
1. You’ll be healthier
When you’re not feeling well, your work often suffers as a result. It’s hard to concentrate on your assignments when all you want to do is curl up in the fetal position and wait for your body to act normally again. However, when you’re in good health and generally feel well, you’re more likely to produce higher quality work. Luckily, sex can contribute to improved health. Among the many benefits of sex is improved immunity, lower cancer risk, improved cardiovascular health, and stress reduction. Are you too busy to get it on? Make room for some play time by scheduling it in your calendar if you have to.
2. You’ll be happier
Have you been feeling down in the dumps lately? Sex can make you happy. This is due partly to the release of oxytocin (sometimes called the “love hormone”) during sex. Researchers assert that happy employees have roughly 31% greater productivity and are three times more creative than their peers. So if you’re feeling particularly unproductive or you’re experiencing a creative block, you know what to do. Now you have another good excuse to mess up those new sheets — not that you needed any convincing.
3. You could make more money
Frequent sex can give you the energy boost you need to give your all at work, which could increase your earning potential. A study conducted by Anglia Ruskin University economics researcher Nick Drydakis found a positive correlation between those who had sex at least four times each week and earnings. These subjects made roughly 5% more than subjects who said they were not having sex at all. The group who didn’t have sex earned 3.2% less. So grab your partner and head for the bedroom before you go to work. You just might get that raise you’ve been wanting.
4. You’ll be more confident
Who couldn’t use an extra dose of confidence? One common trait seen in the most effective leaders is self-confidence. Having sex on a regular basis with a loving and supportive partner can enhance your self-esteem, and as a result, make you feel more confident when it comes to handling situations outside the bedroom.
So there you have it. Engaging in some adult play time can make you healthier, happier, possibly a little richer, and a bit more confident. Before you know it, you’ll be so productive at work that you’ll be climbing the corporate ladder in no time. Just remember to be safe—and no kinky stuff at work. Wait until you get home.
