Scientists have found that the pleasure women get from making love is directly linked to the size of their partner’s bank balance. They found that the wealthier a man is, the more frequently his partner has orgasms. 

“Women’s orgasm frequency increases with the income of their partner,” said Dr Thomas Pollet, the Newcastle University psychologist. He believes the phenomenon is an “evolutionary adaptation” that is hard-wired into women, driving them to select men on the basis of their perceived quality. 

The study is certain to prove controversial, suggesting that women are inherently programmed to be gold-diggers. However, it fits into a wider body of research known as evolutionary psychology which suggests that both men and women are genetically predisposed to ruthlessly exploit each other to achieve the best chances of survival for their genes.

Do you believe the results of the study that claims women have more orgasms when their partner makes a lot of money?

Only if the amount of money you make is directly related to how good you are in bed. I doubt it.

I believe the results... but it's wrong to draw pessimistic conclusions in my opinion.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/09 - 9:05:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't see how that works.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/09 - 11:43:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't see how that would work.

maybe since their partner has more money they can relax and enjoy the sex better than if the partner had less money. i mean, if they don't have to worry about the money/financial situation, so they would enjoy the sex better... right?

Yet another point in the tally for Evolutionary Psychology.

God, I hate their results, but I can't help but agree that it makes sense.

Exactly... there is a bigger picture here.

That definitely is a possible third variable.
But the body of evidence for evolutionary psych just keeps on growing

That's what I was thinking.

^ They included happiness too, it was significant, but the it wasn't as strong a predictor (and to an extent was independent from) as partner wealth.

I took a look at the paper (You can find it on the author, Daniel Nettle's, home page if anyone is curious). Whilst wealth was a significant predictor, the model wasn't a great fit, which means a lot of the variability in the reports of orgasm frequency wasn't accounted for by their partner's wealth. You wouldn't normally expect it to be that high in things like this, but still.

Well, I definitely agree with the relaxed part that someone mentioned earlier, plus I remember reading a study somewhere that said wealthier people tend to have kinkier sex, so...
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 1/26/09 - 5:30:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, no I don't.

Also people seem to be overlooking the effect wealth has on the male psyche.

More confident and powerful male equals sexier which equals more orgasms.

That's not true at all.

I think what people are overlooking is tht psychologists aren't idiots.

But the real question is the chicken or the egg?
Are they confident and more attractive because they're wealthy, or wealthy because they're confident and more attractive?

All you fine folk who are coming out with third variables.

They test for that too, you know.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/09 - 10:07:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm thinking that while the partner is out working long hours earning all that money, the wife is home having orgasms with the pool boy, next door neighbor(s), grocery delivery guy, etc.

Not very well to be fair. Statistically speaking mind, rather than theoretically.
