Sex or money: What makes you happier?

http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/04/health...html?hpt=hp_c3

The researchers even found that sex is so closely tied to happiness that they estimated increasing sexual intercourse from once a month to once a week would have the same mood-boosting effects as adding $50,000 a year in income.

What do you think?

Success brings money brings sex brings happiness. Don't lose sight of the fact that we're still animals, and our ultimate purpose...the reason we do everything else....is to pass on our genes. Even if we intentionally avoid that with birth control, the basic biological drive is still there. All else being equal, biology encourages women to be attracted to men with strength/power/resources, which in the modern age largely means things like money and good social skills. Men are biologically driven to be attracted to women of prime reproductive age- young, healthy, feminine shape.

Well this is a subject close to my heart.
I make good money, how strange is it that in this day and age $100k is just considered good money and not great money?
And when I first met my x wife her and I were poor as shit! I made all of $35k my first year as an engineer! It was shit money!
But when we were both poor we would make love about god…twice a week. It was great! And though we were poor we were both very happy.

A few years later I moved around from job to job and started making $100k…at about that same time my x wife for god knows what reason started to withhold from me. Not just sex, almost any form of passion. And though I was making more money and we had a more relaxed life because we had disposable income…….i felt so poor. No matter how much harder I worked or how much more I made I just felt poor.

And after it all went to shit as it always does I vowed to never ever put myself in such a position again. So I will have to agree with the article.

+1 shah. Sounds exactly like my situation, income level and all. Little to no sex is bad....no passion when you're locked in to just one person is devastatingly bad. I'm recently single now and MUCH happier despite losing assets equivalent to several year's work. LOL...at $50k of happiness for once per week, I've gone from like $100k (in actual dollars) to the equivalent of...oh....say half a mil or so :P

yeah oh it was a living hell! making good money and moving up in the office but when you get home it's.....

I'm glad you are doing better. I'm doing ok my self but i fucked up. Instead of selling my place and moving closer to a large city i fucked up and said i would take the our condo so no i'm kind of stuck in the sticks.

But better stuck in the sticks than going crazy at home.
