Economic Prosperities Influence Intimate Relationships: Study

According to a report of USA Today, a study reveals that an equal financial status leads to a healthy and happy sex life. Roy Baumeister, a Psychologist at Florida State University in Tallahassee the author of the study reveals that his writing is based on the findings of "sexual economics".

The study published in the journal of Social Psychology, has observed data of 37 countries, which also comprised of the international survey on 3170 people. The results of the study revealed that the gender equality was at the highest position, followed by casual sex, more sex partner's per capita, younger ages for first sexual experience and greater tolerance of premarital sex.

The research paper of Baumeister, "Sexual Economics: A Research-Based Theory of Sexual Interactions, or Why the Man Buys Dinner", emphasized on the influence of the economic prosperities on the decision of people while indulging in an intimate relationship.

As per Men Baumeister, "Men will basically exchange other resources with women to have sex, but the reverse doesn't work. Women can trade sex for attention, for grades, for a promotion, for money, as in prostitution or sex with a celebrity".

Moreover, in the countries where women were incapable of gaining economic advantages as their counterparts did, males played a dominant role over that sphere, reveals Baumeister.
