Good Sex Improves Work Performance, says Study
I'm going to need those TPS reports...
In yet another confirmation that good sex can fix anything, new research shows that a healthy, pleasurable sex life can make people better workers and more agreeable office-mates.
In the study, conducted by Dr. Helen Fisher of Chemistry.com, 40,000 people from the dating site were looked at and it was found that those who had a good sex life fared better at work as well.
"In addition to being great exercise and a stress reliever, sex triggers the release of a number of valuable brain chemicals," Dr. Fisher said. "From improved problem-solving as a result of heightened dopamine levels, to enhanced teamwork skills due to a flood of oxytocin -- there are a number of positive benefits which can improve performance in the workplace."
The study showed that after sex, people receive boosts of brain chemicals that help increase feelings of calm and relaxation. This in turn transfers to the workplace, where these characteristics bode well for communication and business.
So the next time you're feeling down about some frustrating situation at work, try working it out in the bedroom at home. Your coworkers will thank you for it.
