No, we are not trying to add the word “sex” to anything and everything to grab your attention. You’ve heard of the saying “sex sells,” which is why hot images of Bollywood actors appear so often in advertisements. But did you know sex can also improve your business and boost your career?
Our business and personal lives are two entirely separate entities, right? Wrong. In fact, what happens in your personal space and what happens at work often affect each other. For instance, you know how a terrible day at work can often make you irritable at home, and workplace stress can elevate your blood pressure and cause everything from headaches to insomnia.
Likewise, being happy at home can have a calming effect at work, helping you make more clear-headed decisions and making you less likely to fall ill or feel overwhelmed with stress. Sure, sex sells, but it also has the power to improve your 9-to-5 life, whether you’re a worker bee or the boss. Having more sex has been linked to lower stress levels at work, and even higher pay.
1. People who get laid often, get paid more.
It might sound wrong at first, but hear it out. According to a research by the Institute for the Study of Labor, people who have sex at least four times a week make more money than their peers who get less busy. So basically, those who have more sex tend to be both happier and healthier, leading to better work attitude, better decision making skills because of low stress, and less discrimination, which in turn leads to higher pay packages.
2. Sex kills stress, improves health.
Sex is a major stress buster. Which means fewer sick days. 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 by Arizona State University showed sexual behavior with a partner correlated with lower negative mood and higher positive mood the following day in middle-aged women.
3. Sex makes your immune system stronger.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a hormone released during sexual encounters, and it has a whole host of benefits. These include health benefits like reducing symptoms in women with lupus and alleviating depression. DHEA can even make you look and feel younger. According to a study by the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, 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.
4. Say goodbye to office migraines.
“Love hormone” or oxytocin, released during sex, is also important in pain relief. Oxytocin is also released during labor in order to relieve pain. With its power to help relieve pain, the hormone could keep you feeling healthier and upbeat in your workspace.
5. Being an entrepreneur can improve your sex life.
Taking control of your own destiny by becoming an entrepreneur can be empowering. It can empower you in more ways than you can imagine. A recent survey of entrepreneurs found 14% 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.
