- Recent Oregon University study suggest happy couples in bedroom are also happy at work
- More active sex life improves work performance
- Oxytocin released during sex is a natural mood elevator
Kuala Lumpur, March 7, 2017: Ever wondered why some of your colleagues sometimes look happier than the rest?
Just maybe, they have a more active sex life than you do.
A recent study made by Oregon State University (OSU) researcher revealed what mankind probably suspected all along – An active sex life can make you happier at work.
“When employees engage in sex at home, they reported increased positive affect at work the following day.”
“Sex at home increases both daily job satisfaction and daily job engagement of the employee,” according to the study that was published in the Journal of Management this month.
The study also revealed that daily work-to-family strain-based conflicts reduced the likelihood of engaging in sex at home.
OSU associate professor, Keith Leavitt, who is also the co-author of the research, stated that it is important to maintain a healthy sex life as it will improve the mood and focus of the employee.
“We make jokes about people having a ‘spring in their step,’ but it turns out this is actually a real thing and we should pay attention to it.”
“The employees will be happier. Thus, benefits the employees and the organisations they work for,” he said.
He clarified by saying that sexual intercourse triggers our ‘love hormones’ called Oxytocin as it is associated with social bonding and attachment.
“It makes sex a natural and relatively automatic mood elevator and the benefits extend well into the next day,” he added.
Heading home after work rather than the usual watering hole now does not seem like a bad idea, does it?
