We know that all of you RedHotPie peeps are a sexual bunch, so you'll be pleased to hear how sex may hold the key to success in the workplace.

A study of workplace productivity and sexy time of married employees has indicated that those who made time for sowing the oats at home were more likely to reap what they sowed at work.

The study conducted by an Oregon State University researcher followed 159 married employees over two weeks. Those who engaged in regular rumpy at home reported “positive moods” the next day. This elevated mood then translated into more sustained work engagement and better job satisfaction.

In short, sex makes a dull job more interesting.

“We make jokes about people having a ‘spring in their step’ but it turns out this is actually a real thing and we should pay attention to it,” said expert in organisational behaviour and management, Keith Leavitt, in his report.

“Maintaining a healthy relationship that includes a healthy sex life will help employees stay happy and engaged in their work, which benefits the employees and the organisations they work for.”

The study says nothing about the benefits of sex with co-workers during work hours, or getting jiggy with your married boss, so we can only conclude that these scenarios may not contribute as positively to your productivity.

Sex impacts our lives in a variety of ways. The hormones released during a roll around invoke feelings of well-being. They also often give us less inclination to find a partner’s slight misdemeanour grounds for divorce, but the effects of a good romp aren’t just emotional suggests sexologist, Isiah McKimmie.

“Sex helps our bodies release endorphins like dopamine and oxytocin that elevates our mood, helps us relax and feel more loving with our partner. Sex also lowers our heart rate, boosts our immune system and can help us sleep better,” says McKimmie.

Well-rested, calm employees with that “I got laid last night” glow unknowingly have an advantage at work as they immerse themselves more deeply in their tasks and claimed to enjoy work more. With sexual healing touching our work lives, then surely sex must contribute to making the rest of our life pretty damn fantastic too?

“In my experience sex can benefit every area of our lives. It can help us feel happier, more confident in social situations, improve our health, bring us closer to our partner and promote feelings of wellbeing in our entire family,” McKimmie said.

Conversely, the study also suggested that bringing work-related stress home may impact our love life negatively. Thanks to smart phones, work is constantly in our pocket and our after-hours engagement is at its highest. If we allow work to sneak in and mess with our va-va-va-voom then our overall work life may begin to suffer.

Although leaving work at the office may be easier said than done, a ban on phones in the bedroom may go a long way towards continued good loving.

“Mobile phones and devices in bed can affect people’s sex lives. It often means that we’re connecting with our phones rather than our partner, which doesn’t promote intimacy. We can also be adding to our stress and stopping ourselves switching off because we’re thinking about work and what has to be done,” says McKimmie.

With so much emphasis placed on success at work, perhaps this is one instance where we really should work smarter and harder.

I've always been fascinated by human sexuality and I really enjoy writing about many different aspects of it - such as swinging and open relationships, and providing general relationship and sex advice. I often write other general interest news pieces, including celeb goss and fashion.
