Researchers from the University of Washington and the University of Oregon have published a study in the Journal of Management highlighting the benefits of sex at workplaces. The research found that married employees are happier and more productive at work when they engage in regular sex at home. The study underscores the social, emotional and physiological benefits of sex at home and its overall boost at work.

Make sex a priority at home, and enjoy greater productivity at work

The researchers surveyed 159 married employees over a two-week period and found that they are happier and reported better work engagement in their workplaces. The study also found that the benefits of sex at home linger for a minimum of 24 hours and extend into work lives. According to the published study, the authors say sustained work engagement and job satisfaction are tied to elevated mood levels which are in turn tied to satisfactory sex at home.

"This is a reminder that sex has social, emotional and physiological benefits, and it's important to make it a priority. Just make time for it," said Keith Leavitt, one of the researchers and an associate professor in Oregon State University's College of Business. The co-authors of the research are Christopher Barnes and Trevor Watkins of the University of Washington and David Wagner of the University of Oregon. They found that regular sex triggers the release of dopamine and oxytocin, hormones associated with happiness, social bonding and attachment.

Healthy sex life and work productivity benefits employees and employers

The authors of the study were able to prove that healthy sex is a great advantage to both employees and employers, since it boosts personal happiness and generates work engagement. According to the researchers, married employees who prioritize sex at home give themselves a next day advantage at work without necessarily knowing it. They therefore surmise by saying that healthy sex life is necessary for a strong work-life balance.

A Swedish lawman recently proposed that a bill be passed to allow workers engage in sex for one hour during their break time - to boost work productivity and increase his town's declining population. It is not clear if this can be achieved in the US but it is essential that couples do away with office work on getting home and create more personal time for themselves. French lawmen signed a law giving employees the "right to disconnect" so that they can detach themselves from office work at home and have more time for marital necessities in the home.
