Are women hard-wired to be gold diggers? New research suggests they could be: according to the London Times, women have better sex with wealthy men. “Women’s orgasm frequency increases with the income of their partner,” said Newcastle University psychologist Thomas Pollet, who points to an “evolutionary adaptation” that pushes women to choose men based on the perceived quality of their genes. Pollet’s research team tested the hypothesis using one of the world’s biggest lifestyle studies—the Chinese Health and Family Life Survey, which compiled information from 5,000 Chinese people (including 1,534 women with male partners) about their personal lives. While several factors were linked to female orgasm, they said, the man’s income was one of the main ones.
