A team of economists from the US and Britain have finally finished a study which claims that having a good sex life is worth about $50,000 a year to the average person, while being married being almost as much as $100,000.
Their research involved interviews with almost 100,000 subjects and tried to establish what value people place on their sex lives and marriages.
"The financial values that we calculated are what it would cost to compensate someone for a happy marriage in money terms", said Dartmouth College economist David Blanchflower.
Their results showed that most people would need about an extra $50,000 in yearly income to equal the contentment they receive from their sex lives. Sex psychologist Perruska Clarson added," I think that figure is an underestimate. Sex reduces stress, increases our immune system and reduces pain. Regular sex improves not only your physical health but your mental health." (Sunday Times)

No more than 50k USD to not have a sex life???

Good marriage is worth the double, but I still can’t relate that with money for not having a life partner to share me with. It is invaluable and in a country where you can sue a company for using there products with several million dollars and WIN, the numbers are ridiculous.

No way I would sign that deal wow

Hey Jan! Didn`t you know that children are a result of sex?grin Sorry I just could not resist that one!

Now, I think this is worth telling those poor Indian and African families ........ that their sex lives are worth so much money to them...... Only problem is they gonna try and trade with it. In their minds sex is free, except for the result of the kids ..... money doesnt come into the equation. But knowing how much its actually worth, well, that could make a big difference in their lives. They could trade it for food?

Nah, I think Solitare is balling us again - reporting on these inane "studies" that students get paid for to do to aquire themselves doctorates?

One could apply for monies to study any damn stupid thing ...... like how much are your fingernails worth?

I do wonder sometimes why these numbers are important to someone. Is it NASA trying to figure out the monthly pay for the first Mars crew?

For a human body that's worth, roughly, USD 100 (considering the elements that constitute the human body, most of it being water), these figures are out of proportion rolling on the floor laughing
