Workaholics driven by lack of sexPosted on Aug 3rd 2007 5:08PM by Jonathon Morgan
What drives workaholics to keep pushing, even when most normal people would give up and call it a day? A recent study suggests that it's not money, prestige, or an obsessive nature -- but rather a tepid sex life.
In a study of 32,000 men and women, researchers discovered that -- of those who reported having a lackluster sex lives -- 35 percent channeled that frustration into extra work. Among those who reported having no sex at all, the number was even greater -- with 45 percent voluntarily putting in extra hours on the job.
Let's hope this doesn't get into the hands of any corporate CEOs. I have a sneaking suspicion that this might become the new "genius" plan to increase worker productivity.
