Research Shows Sex Satisfies as Much as Money - The Hilltop

Research Shows Sex Satisfies as Much as Money - The Hilltop - Life & Style

Each person seeks happiness, whether their happiness stems from money, cars, family, education, a mansion on the hill or sex. But who knew that sex could provide happiness for longer than an hour?

The latest news is that if you increase your sexual activity from once a month to once a week, your happiness will be equal to someone who receives a $50,000 annual pay raise.

"Money, Sex, and Happiness: An Empirical Study" is a recent study by David Blanchflower and Andrew Oswald. Compare two people, for instance, with the same job qualifications and characteristics and one of them was happily married. The person who is single would have to make an extra $100,000 a year in order to be as happy as the married one. It seems that the most happiness stems from the idea of having just one partner.
