It’s always fun to shame guys for their ways of getting around in bed. Women can always remind themselves that while there are a handful of sluts, (whether you consider sluttiness good, bad or obsolete, it’s just the most well known term for those ladies who get around) the majority of the male population is busy thinking about, trying to, or in the process of getting it on. However, recent studies have revealed that while men are more commonly found sleeping around, gender has very little to do with it. As it turns out, power is the main influence on sleeping around and infidelity.
A survey conducted by a group of researchers in the Netherlands concluded that when the power scale was equaled out, women cheated and slept around just as much as men did .The survey of 1561 professionals, male and female, who shared similar careers and feelings of power, showed that powerful people, regardless of gender, are …
… more likely to have infidelities.
According to Psychologist Joris Lammers, who worked on the study, “There has been a lot of research in the past that indicates that gender is the strongest predictor of infidelity, but none of these studies have been done on powerful women. People often assume that powerful men may be more likely to cheat because they have risk-taking personalities or because of distance, such as frequent business trips that many powerful people go on. We found little correlation between either of the two.”
So why is it that power leads to a raging sex life? The researchers behind the study believe that power equals confidence, and confident is one of the sexiest things that a person can be. Oh and naturally, sexy people tend to have more sex. So while this study was conducted for scientific purposes, and not as a way of backing up various claims found in magazines like Cosmopolitan, the findings definitely help support the fact that confidence is sexy. So whether your a Wall Street Financial Advisor or you live alone with your 197 cats, just keep it calm, cool, and a confident and you’ll be sleeping around like a pro in no time.
