Sex and Money Go Hand-in-Hand, Study Says

DALLAS, Texas – A new study from online matchmaking service TRUEBeginnings says that the connection between money and sex is more deeply rooted in human behavior than previously thought.

According to the study, which polled just under 10,000 men and women on their sexual mores when it comes to money, jealousy, and libido, concluded that a stronger commitment to making money tends to offset sexual desire if money goals are not shared with a partner. However, if they are, then a couple's libidos are equally matched, if not higher than average.

A summary of the study indicates that knowingly or not, people tend to form strong relationships with money, and the nature of those relationships have a direct impact on the way people interact in romantic situations.

"As a person becomes more involved with money, he or she tends to be less willing to commit to personal relationships, including romantic ones," said Dr. James Houran, director of psychological studies at TRUEBeginnings. "Such people are also more likely to be jealous and tend to be more libidinous."

TRUEBeginnings also states that older people tend to look at money with less importance, except for males over the age of 60, and that in general, money holds stronger importance for women.

Additionally, men and women who place a great deal of importance on money are less likely to be faithful in personal relationships than those individuals who feel that money is not a top priority, the study stated. And feelings of jealousy tend to rise as the interest in money increases.

"Anyone who has ever been in a serious relationship is aware that financial issues affect couples more than just about anything else," Houran continued. "So, instead of exploring the general reasons behind this, we decided to zero-in on how sex and money affect individuals, specifically whether a correlation exists between sexual factors — such as faithfulness, libido and jealousy — and a person's interest in money,"
