Not that this is much of a surprise, but it turns out that the rich do indeed have better sex. No, it’s not just that the richer the man the more opportunity there is likely to be and anyway, the latest research shows that it’s not the rich men having the better sex. Rather, it’s the women those rich men have the sex with.
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 behind the research.
The interesting thing here, at least to someone like me who is always looking for that angle, is that it doesn’t matter what the higher income is spent upon. Just a higher income, even if spent upon boys’ toys, will increase the enjoyment of my own dear wife (hey, I believe in science when it’s convenient to do so!).
Thus as and when I am to be found out in the barn scribbling away again I can, hand on heart, state that although it is indeed for that sports car that I’m earning the money, in reality, “it’s for you my dear”. Now just to raise the courage to try the argument.
