The Boardroom & The Bedroom: How Sex Can Help Your Career


Sex can help your career. Yes, you read right. Having more sex can not only help decrease your stress levels at work, but could lead to a raise.

According to recent studies, there are five ways in which sex can help your career.

One is more money. “People who have sex get paid more. Apparently there are some outside-of-the-bedroom perks for having more sex. One of those perks is a higher paycheck, at least according to research from the Institute for the Study of Labor.”  The study discovered people who have sex at least four times a week earn more money than those who don’t.

Another is sex acts as a stress reliever, which will result in a happier and healthier worker.  You may also live longer if you have a healthy sex life. According to the book Your Doctor is Wrong by Sharon Norling, frequent orgasms can increase life expectancy by three to eight years. Plus, a study showed sexual behavior with a partner correlated with lower negative mood and higher positive mood the following day in middle-aged women.

Third, sex can boost your immune system, which will mean fewer sick days. During sex, the hormone Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is released and among the benefits includes reducing symptoms in women with lupus and helping depression.

A side benefit– DHEA can take years off your real age. According to another study, people in their 40s who reported having 50 percent or more sex than their peers also appeared to be about seven to 13 years younger than their actual age when judged by a panel of strangers.

Sex can also get rid of office migraines. Another hormone released during sex is Oxytocin. Dubbed the “love hormone,” it is pain relief.

Lastly, sex and entrepreneurship go hand in hand. Entrepreneurs tend to have more sex. According to a recent survey of entrepreneurs, 14 percent reported having more sex after ditching their 9-to-5 job. So it works both ways–more sex can help your career with better health and higher wages, and finally breaking out on your own and following your entrepreneurial dreams can lead to more sex,” reports Inc.
