A new research claims that consensual sex after a hard day of work can give your work a boost the next day.
The research was carried out by a team from Oregon State University, University of Oregon and University of Washington, and researchers followed 159 married employees over the course of two weeks. The employees were asked to complete two brief surveys each day.
It was reported that employees reported more positive moods the next day after having consensual sex at home, and this better mood in the morning led to more sustained engagement in their work and job satisfaction.
The study is equally strong for both men and women. Sex triggers the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with the reward centers in the brain, as well as oxytocin, a neuropeptide associated with social bonding and attachment.
