Artistic Types Have Way More Sex

After surveying 425 men and womenDaniel Nettle of Newcastle University found a strong link between the profession of a person and the number of sexual partners they have had.

According to this study, doctors, lawyers, and other business-y types have had sex with fewer partners than people in creative fields, namely with as few as three people on average. People in more creative careers such as writing, music, or the arts have shagged anywhere from four to ten and even more.

The reason for this difference, says Nettle, is a bit of a no-brainer: “Creative types tend to act on more sexual impulses and opportunities, often purely for experience’s sake, than the average person would,” he explains. Of course, that doesn’t mean that every person who dabbles in watercolors, is writing a novel, or works in advertising can be found out bed-hopping. The actual number will vary from individual to individual.

I have to admit, it makes sense.  In all the men I’ve ever dated, I do have to say those who were more “artsy” were obviously more sexual then the others and that was obvious with the men remaining fully dressed.
