    Great sex at least once a week is worth $50,000 in happiness

    Two economists--David G. Blanchflower of Dartmouth College and Andrew J. Oswald of the University of Warwick in England--have done the first rigorous econometric analysis of money, happiness, and sex, and their findings have turned conventional wisdom upside-down

    One of the things they wanted to measure is this: How much happiness is sex worth? The answer: $50,000. That is, having sex at least once a week provides as much happiness as putting $50,000 in the bank.

    There was one surprise finding: A larger income does not buy more sex or sexual partners. "That was surprising to us as economists," Oswald told New York Times reporter Eric Dash, "because by and large, we think money can buy anything."

    Other interesting findings:

    * Married people have 30 percent more sex than their single friends and are significantly happier.
    * The happiness of being in a gay or lesbian relationship is virtually identical to being in a heterosexual relationship.

    I have sex more than once a week on average, and I know I'd be much happier than I am now if I had 50 g's


    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.
