11 Reasons To Have More Sex
Having More Sex Is Good for Your Career, According to Science
In case you needed another reason to ignore work emails when you get home at night (and to spend your evenings getting busy in another context), a new study reveals having more sex is good for work satisfaction.
"We make jokes about people having a 'spring in their step,' but it turns out this is actually a real thing and we should pay attention to it," Keith Leavitt, the Oregon State University professor who conducted the experiment, said in a press release. "Maintaining a healthy relationship that includes a healthy sex life will help employees stay happy and engaged in their work, which benefits the employees and the organizations they work for."
Leavitt and his fellow researchers followed 159 married employees over the course of two weeks and asked them to fill out two surveys each day. They found that those who had sex reported that they were in a more positive mood the next day, which led to more job satisfaction and work engagement throughout the day.
The positive effects lasted for about 24 hours and were equal for the men and the women.
Plus, the researchers found that bringing home work-related stress negatively affected the employees' sex lives. So, when couples don't unplug, they miss out on the positive effects — including the release of dopamine, which triggers bonding and attachment — that can actually make them more motivated at work the next day.
"This is a reminder that sex has social, emotional and physiological benefits, and it's important to make it a priority," Leavitt said. "Technology offers a temptation to stay plugged in, but it's probably better to unplug if you can.
