Sex in good times vs. bad

Sex is a constant in society. If it weren't for sex, none of us would exist today. Entire industries hinge on people having sex. It keeps the birthing wings of hospitals in business as well as the condom industry and pharmaceutical companies (birth control, penicilin for those pesky STDs) because plenty of people love the sex but not so much with the consequences.

My question is whether sex occurs more during bad economic times than good economic times.

Think for a moment how busy you are with your job. Remember a couple years ago having to work overtime just to keep your head above water at your office? Think back to last week. Did you even need eight hours each day to finish all your work-related tasks?

Sure, the economy sucks and you have far less money to get out of the house and go to a fancy restaurant like Arby's but what are you going to do to pass all that time you are spending at home like a damned hermit? You could seduce your significant other and get your sex on, of course. It sure beats watching repeats of The Real Housewives of Atlanta/Orange County/New York City/Little Rock/Des Moines and it is a hell of a lot more fun than just sitting on the couch... again.

So, are you or are you not finding yourself taking to cheaper options of entertainment such as sex during this, um, economic hiccup?

Sorry, sex-starved perverts, MinnPics is full of great photos but it's a family place so any photographs sexual in nature are strangely absent.

ha, i was just having this discussion with a friend. we came to the conclusion that sex with one person increases during a recession, freewheeling sex with multiple people increases during boom times.

I need to excuse to have sex. I just like it.

It is also funny to see how many children are born 8-9 months after a bad winter. Seems that when people are stuck indoors for an extended period of time, things happen. ;-)
