Having More Sex Means Be Better At Your Jobs


Oregon State University researchers have discovered workers who have sex the night before are better at their jobs.

It would appear having a happy life between the sheets really does boost productivity, as Mirror Online reports.

In the new study, it was revealed less amorous colleagues at work are outperformed by their counterparts the day after a night of passion.

It also boosts their own job satisfaction which, in turn, gives them a better work-life balance, said researchers from a US university for the specialist Journal of Management.

The team of experts looked at 159 married employees from an unnamed office-based business, monitoring their work performance and their sex habits.

Those who had sex with their partners, at home, performed their work tasks better the next day than those who did not have sex.

They came to work happier and more fulfilled, immersed themselves more in the tasks they were given and enjoyed their job more as a result, said OSU’s College of Business professor Keith Leavitt.

He said: “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.

“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 organisations they work for.”

Some countries already recognise this, he said. In Sweden, one town council has suggested municipal workers be given an hour off every week specifically to have sex.

But it could also be a result of having time away from constant work contact - the time spent having sex is also - it is assumed - time not spent checking emails or being on a screen.

This lowers work-related stress even without the added benefits of lovemaking, which releases chemicals and hormones related to reward centres in the brain, said the study.

The feelgood factor from sex lasts for approximately 24 hours, said Professor Leavitt.

In contrast, sacrificing sex in order to work is only likely to lower any feelgood factor and raise levels of stress.

He added: “This is a reminder that sex has social, emotional and physiological benefits, and it’s important to make it a priority. Just make time for it.

“Making a more intentional effort to maintain a healthy sex life should be considered an issue of human sustainability, and as a result, a potential career advantage.”
