have sex more often

A new study found that happier people are, the more they had sex, compared with their friends, Fox News.

The scientific project was led by Tim Wadsworth, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Colorado Boulder. The paper titled "Sex and the pursuit of happiness: What other sexual life affects our well-being" men impotency presented national data and their statistical analysis.

Wadsworth found a tendency that the more a person has sex, the happier he is. Nevertheless, given the frequency of sexual relations, he showed a special pattern that people were happier, thinking that having sex more than their friends.

Research shows that feelings of happiness does not affect the amount of sex itself, namely, man's thoughts about how often they engaged his friends.

Wadsworth worked total results of a poll of 15 000 people - an annual survey of happiness and behavior according to Geekosystem.

According to the study:

  • Respondents argue that having sex 2-3 times a month for 33% happier than those who do not have sex for a year;

  • for those who engage in sexual relations once a week, the result is 44%;

  • and those who have sex 2-3 times a week for 55% happier.

However, happiness is also influenced by our thoughts about how often our friends are having sex. So, Wadsworth have found that people who have sex 3 times a month, thinking that their friends make love once a week, the level of happiness decreases by about 14%.

Wadsworth explains: "Of course, the feeling of happiness depends on the amount of sex, but there are some aspects of the relative sense of well-being. So, the more we have sex, the more we are happy. But thinking that he had sex more than the other, the person becomes even happier. "
