Women Orgasm More For Wealthy Men

A British researcher finds that women come more often in the arms of wealthy men.

“Women’s orgasm frequency increases with the income of their partner,” said Dr Thomas Pollet, the Newcastle University psychologist behind the research.

He believes the phenomenon is an “evolutionary adaptation” that is hard-wired into women, driving them to select men on the basis of their perceived quality.

The study is certain to prove controversial, suggesting that women are inherently programmed to be gold-diggers.

Women are turned on by wealthy men. It really is true. But the idea that stereotypes are true of course is evil crimethink. We are encouraged to respond to such thoughts by engaging in what Orwell called CrimeStop. But the mental technique of CrimeStop is protective stupidity. I do not feel more safe as a result of the promotion of this mental technique.

The desire of women for a wealthy man seems an obvious product of evolution. That people behave in ways that are a product of our evolutionary history seems obvious to me. Of course ignorant people come up with all sorts of alternative explanations for why we behave as well do.

Cassie is unrepentant about dating rich men. “Of course it is much better to sleep with men with lots of money,” said the 27-year-old lawyer from London.

“Any girl who tells you different is lying. Rich men are powerful and successful and confident and charismatic. They know what they want, and they go out and get it. That translates to being fantastic in bed.”

Women do pick up on the confidence of a successful alpha male and most are attracted to it. So pick-up artists like Roissy advocate a strategy of adopting alpha male behaviors as pick-up techniques. While some (though not all) of his female readers object to the efficacy of these techniques I think he's right overall. But if you can create wealth then you'll do even better. Alpha behavior techniques plus wealth work better than just wealth or just the techniques. So it still helps to get rich.

We are the products of our evolutionary history Denying this does not change us. The denial just leads us into rationalizations to explain why we engage in behaviors that are evolutionary strategies.

How abut the Mexican drug lords, or the Middle Eastern feudal leaders who amass their fortunes by means of violent methods? Certainly, brutally oppressive methods of grabbing power can also be considered a form of genetic intelligence, but obviously this form of intelligence is different from Einstein or Hawking.

To be sure, Stalin's power was an aphrodisiac for many Russian women.

Corelation is not causation.

A wealthy man will find women attracted to him even if he does not spend any money on her. This is because the traits that attract women : confidence, good communication skills, good relationship skills, etc. will lead to both success with women AND wealth. The skills that lead to financial success AND success with women overlap greatly. But such a man will do well with women even in college, BEFORE he actually becomes rich.

A nerd who makes a lot of money daytrading in front of a computer screen will NOT do that well with women.

ya, it's always a good idea to ask people about sex, and not say, observe them. they've never lied in the past.

when the fuck are you people going to stop discounting studies based on sex surveys. at least ones with women. women are known to lie in sex surveys. christ.

I propose that it's a mental thing. Women want to believe that the rich man finds them interesting and sexy and respond accordingly.

The above poster does have a point; people lie about sex. When I was a teenager, convincing sensitive adults that we were all degenerates was a lot of fun. Actually, it still is.

The discovery of "the new intercourse" - The Coital Alignment Technique (CAT) - makes it possible for women to climax from intercourse, and results in Simultaneous orgasm regularly. (Studies can be downloaded free at www.MarriagesScience.com) It has to do with a basic position and a specifically coordinated form of sexual movement. It doesn't have anything to do with how much money people have. The research has been opposed by psychitarists in the pay of pharmaceutical companies - and they are wealthy.
