High-earning women a real turn-off in the bedroom
BLOKES are more likely to have floppy willies if their wives or girlfriends are the main breadwinners.
And the odds are that they will cheat on their partners to recapture their bedroom mojo, new research reveals.
The insecurity of a woman making more money could also affect men’s overall health.
Professor Lamar of Washington University’s Olin Business School, Missouri, said: “Male sexual desire and behaviour is tied to cultural and social factors such as patriarchy and money, potentially causing them to suffer reduced sexual desire when perceiving their traditional role of provider to be usurped.
“Anger and frustration can lead to serious sexual problems such as erectile dysfunction, a problem also linked to unemployment and decreasing household income.”
Prof. Pierce added: “There is a powerful social norm for many men that it’s important to make more than their wives.
“Essentially, when that social norm is violated, they feel emasculated.”
