Your Workaholism May Tell Me....

far more about your sex life than I need to know.

A German study of 32,000 men and women indicates a relationship between workaholism and lack of sex. Yes, unsatisfying sex or lack of sex led to willingness to take on extra work:

A survey of 32,000 men and women by researchers at the University of Goettingen found over 35 percent of those reporting unsatisfying sex lives tended to use hard work as a diversion.

Some 36 percent of men and 35 percent of women surveyed for the "Apotheken Umschau" newsletter said they were likely to put in extra time at the office and volunteer for extra assignments.

The hard work ethic was even more pronounced among those who reported having no sex -- 45 percent of men and 46 percent of women said they voluntarily took on more responsibilities.
This explains so much about workplace behavior for me.
