Competitive sex is totally a thing now, you guys.
Science says so.
An American professor has conducted a study that found we’re a pretty petty bunch when it comes how much sex we’re having.
Apparently, no matter how many times your partner made you scream with pleasure this week, it doesn’t really count unless you know you did it more than ‘The Joneses’. (You know – that magical couple on whom the success of all others is measured. Cured cancer? Whatevs… Have The Joneses done that lately?)
Tim Wadsworth, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Colorado Boulder, recently published the results of a study on how sexual frequency corresponds with happiness.
And according to, um, science, Wadsworth says that “Having more sex makes us happy – but thinking that we’re having more sex than other people makes us even happier.”
So, basically…. Sex = happy but thinking you’re having more sex than The Jonses = really, really happy.
Nailed it – take that Year 10 Biology.
Interesting results but wouldn’t you rather quality over quantity (you know, if you absolutely had to choose)?
