Turns out, there are things rich people do better than you, and being more satisfied between the sheets is one of them. I love reading articles related to money and then giving my faithful readers an earful. Last month I commented on a piece “Shape” Magazine wrote about the five most common money nightmares among women. This month I am going to focus a piece I found very interesting, courtesy of CNN about money and sex and the things rich people do better than those of us struggling to get by.
This article raises an important question…
“What makes you happier sex or money?”
In a Prince & Associates survey of multi-millionaires, 70% said wealth gave them “better sex”. The article did not specify if they were comparing the sex that they had when they were poor to sex they have now, or if they just think they have better sex than the rest of the 99%. I find this a bit of a broad statement to be making in a survey, as it's hard to quantify.
Things Rich People Do: Have More Sexual Partners
Not surprising: The men taking this survey said “better” sex =more sex with more partners.
(P.S. CNN- that's not an exclusively “rich guy” thing.)
But really, it's not about rich people have access to everything they want. Having bundles of cash also (likely) means you don't have to worry about the same things that keep most of us awake at night like debt or lack of savings. ; freeing you to have more energy and drive for sexual romping. It's not a guess, it's science. It has been proven that women who experience stress have a lower libido, but that still doesn't mean you can't crank out a great orgasm every now and then just because you are poor.
Things Rich People Do: (Probably) Get Hotter Women Than You…Here's Why:
What made me yell out “OH COME ON!” as I was reading was the paragraph about how women who have sex with rich men experience better orgasms. According to the survey, when a man's net worth increased so did the frequency of their female partner's orgasms. What was the control factor for this? If a wealthy man is banging a not so wealthy girl how do we know she wasn't lying about her orgasms? Wouldn't she say anything to get her hands on that paper? Still, the article asserts female orgasms might increase with wealthier partners as an evolutionary mechanism for women to find “stable” partners who will be able to care for their needs.
What I'm hearing is…much like the Lucky Charms leprechaun, my clitoris can now detect gold. I only have to tell the lucky gent my legends of the hidden temple to establish the true pauper from the prince!
How About We Look At Another Study
The second half of the article gets much better, in my opinion, when they cite another study done at Dartmouth with 16,000 of us 99 percenters. Findings are in: the more sex you have, the happier you are. How happy? The equivalent of having $50,000.00 more per year. (Before or after taxes is what I wanna know…)
Another thing I was surprised to learn….sex has been proven to make you better at your job. So more sex = wealth and happiness. This can lead you to become a millionaire and then you really get to enjoy the freaky! It is a self-fulfilling prophecy!
Jokes aside, I don't think this article is without merit and I found it enjoyable and interesting. The article gives some sound advice for those couples who aren't lucky enough to be fabulously wealthy; treat your relationships with the same care as you would treat your money. I'm happy to learn there is now scientific proof love indeed nourishes way more than money ever could. And for those of you fighting your way out of debt or working with a really tight budget, just have more sex with your spouse/partner.
Aside from being the cheapest thing to do on a Saturday night, it's now proven to make you feel richer, instantly.
