  • Rich men = hot sex

    Women experience better sex with rich men, a new study claims.

    The research shows that a woman’s sexual fulfilment is directly proportionate to the amount of money their lover has.

    The reason? Women make sure they orgasm more frequently to signal to their man that they are loyal and would make good marriage material.

    ‘We found that women report more frequent orgasms the higher their partner’s income is,’ explains Dr Thomas Pollet, a Newcastle University psychologist.

    ‘It appears consistent with the view that female orgasm has an evolved adaptive function. It serves to discriminate between males on the basis of their quality,’ he adds.

    ‘If so, then it should be more frequent in females paired with high-quality males. More desirable mates cause women to experience more orgasms.’

    Some find the suggestion that women prefer rich men offensive, but

    many scientists argue that it makes perfect evolutionary sense. 


    women have to take such a high personal risk when they have a baby, it

    is imperative that they find the most successful partner to ensure that

    their DNA is passed on. 

    And we only need to glance around to see real-life examples, just look at 82-year-old Hugh Hefner and his bevy of twenty-something bunnies or plump Donald Trump and his young supermodel wife.

    So, money might not buy you love, but it’ll certainly get you a few steamy sessions in-between the sheets!
