I thought it was kind of obvious that people with more income had the stability to enjoy a healthier sex life—after all, nothing kills a boner faster than worrying about how you’re going to make rent. While I initially concluded that you couldn’t achieve a richer sex life by simply making more money, a new study by the Barcelona Public Health Agency says otherwise.

After administering a sex survey to 9,850 Spaniards in 2009, researchers finally got around to crunching all that data and found that an impressive 90 percent of the country’s men and women are satisfied with their sex lives. Upon further review, however, they found an interesting correlation between wealth and orgasms.

It was discovered that people of lower socioeconomic status claimed to be less satisfied sexually than their more wealthy counterparts. This correlation between wealth and sexual satisfaction was most apparent among women, where privileged Spaniards exhibited “better awareness of their own needs and a greater capacity for developing their sexuality in a way which is satisfying for them.”

Many recognize that sexual health is a reflection of one’s overall state of physical, emotional, and social wellbeing. It’s not that having sex on a pile of money is more gratifying than fucking on a lumpy mattress in a small apartment; wealthy people just have the resources to lead a healthier life.

That being said, if you are unhappy with your sex life and becoming flagrantly rich isn’t an option, just focus on becoming happier in other areas of your life. Resolve some of your nagging emotional problems, live a healthier life, and learn to live with as little stress as you can within your current means.

Everyone is always looking to hit that homerun in life that will solve all their problems, but the truth is you can become just as happy through a series of small accomplishments. You’ll be having more and better sex in no time.
