Two studies published in the British Journal of Psychology point to the idea that people who give more, get more.
The researchers broke it down this way: The first study asked single men and women to describe how much charity work they take part in (if any), and how frequently they have sex.
Researchers found that straight women received more sexual attention from men when they were more charitably active, while men who were more charitable were found to have had more sexual partners in their lifetime. So, a win for everyone.
That’s right. Looks like the more time you spend giving to others, the more you will receive in the bedroom. Pretty great, right? But the study went on.
In the second study, students were given $100. They were able to either donate all the money to charity, donate part of it, or keep all the cash for themselves.
The men who gave more money to charity were found to have had more sexual partners, while the women who were more charitable had sex more frequently.
What this all adds up to is pretty clear. Be better at being human. It will not only help the world be a little less awful, it might help get you laid.
