Active sex life improves performance at work: study
Maintaining an active sex life at home makes a person more productive and helps him perform better at work, according to a new psychological study.
Keith Leavitt, an associate professor in the Oregon State University’ College of Business, studied the work and sex habits of several married employees and found that those employees who enjoyed sex at home unknowingly gave better performance at work on the next day.
Those who enjoyed sex at home were more likely to immerse themselves in their work, which led to improved job satisfaction.
Sharing his findings, Leavitt said, “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 organizations they work for.”
Leavitt explained that sexual intercourse triggers the release of dopamine -- a neurotransmitter linked to the reward centers in the brain, as well as oxytocin, which is associated with social attachment.
The researchers reported their findings in the most recent edition of the Journal of Management.
