You know those super people who are always involved in one project or another, are working long hours and yet volunteer for everything? They are compensating for their lack of sex. So those of us who don't work that hard and don't do much of anything extra-curricular are relaxed and sexually satisfied like the people shown here?
Brilliant observation. Thank god for scientists or we wouldn't know what we already know.
"Ragnar Beer of the University of Göttingen surveyed almost 32,000 men and women for his Theratalk Project, which has found that the less sex you have, the more work you seek. Indeed, the sexually deprived have to find outlets for their frustrations: they often take on more commitments and work.
Beer's team found that 36 percent of men and 35 percent of women who have sex only once a week take on extra work to compensate for their wanting sex life. It's even worse for the hapless couples who have altogether lost their eye for one another. Forty-five percent of men and 46 percent of women who no longer have sex with their partner seek out other activities to salve their wanting libidos.
And, to make matters worse for sexless workaholics, the extra work cuts into their would-be sex time. "Sexual frustration prevents you from being able to reduce your stress," Beer observes. In other words, no sex leads to even less sex."
