If you're busy working 3 jobs to be able to afford your apartment because you're getting paid minimum wage I can see how you'd be too tired to fark. Or at least not enjoy it as much.

I've worked in hotels and resorts in the past.
When people check in you can pretty much tell how they feel about themselves.
Some just want it all over with and the sooner the better - that'd be "Life" not necessarily the sex, "life" as they know it.
Others are attractive, confident, wealthy and you can tell they NEVER want this ride over with.  They can't wait to get to the room and start boning each other.

Has to do with work, self image, healthy foods + healthy work.

Very rarely will you EVER see an unattractive rich woman.  Unpleasant, unkind and poor mannered sure, but unattractive? Never.

It's not sex itself, it's the environment. Trying to find an old couch in the woods so you can bang the Subway cashier after going to the dollar movies isn't nearly as convenient or comfortable as taking the new Accouting temp back to your downtown condo and getting blown on your heated leather sofa.

I saw this and it sure makes sense. Sex was lackluster back when I was broke.

slayer199: There's nothing like doing a line of coke off a stripper's back or if you can afford it...2 or 3 stripper's backs.


Meth is cheaper and means sleep is no longer necessary.  Orgies can lasts for days.

In NYC, this is definitely true. It's hard to get a date unless you're of a certain age, profession and income level.

No surprise.  The more relaxed you are, the more you enjoy sex.  Not having to worry about paying the bills is tremendously relaxing.

I never understood people who say money doesn't buy happiness.  It buys the peace of mind that catastrophes won't be so catastrophic.  Something happens and all your stuff is reduced to ashes or your town is devastated by a natural disaster?  You have the money to rebuild, even if you have to change your locale.

Vacation sex is great, but people who put themselves into massive debt just to take a vacation can't be entirely oblivious to what getting back from such a vacation involves in terms of buy now, pay later.

We all have to pay the piper.  But he who pays the piper calls the tune.

Said lead author Tim Wadsworth: "Having more sex makes us happy, but thinking that we are having more sex than other people makes us even happier."

I wonder what prostitutes think about that.

I am shocked to find out you are ignorant regarding family size for lower income people.

It is really stunning that yet again, you are talking out your ass. It's such a surprise.

Certainly. I don't have the money woes, but after a run of 12 hour workdays, my libido goes down and I'm just interested in sleep.
