Yes, it's true - being a multimillionaire means having "more adventurous and exotic" sex lives, according to a survey out today by Prince & Associates. The survey, which polled nearly 600 men and women with net worths of more than $30 million and a mean net worth of $89 million, found that 63 percent of the men and 88 percent of the women said wealth gave them better sex. The most surprising result found that nearly three-quarters of the women surveyed said they had had affairs, compared with 50 percent of the men. They were also more than twice as likely as men (72 percent-33 percent) to be members of the “mile high club” - probably made a lot easier because all the folks surveyed own jets or shares in jets.
Sex therapist Ian Kerner told the WSJ's Wealth Report that increased sexual activity by wealthy women doesn’t reflect the “pool boy” syndrome in which bored young trophy wives have affairs with household help. Today’s rich women, he said, are powerful businesspeople who feel secure in having relationships outside their marriage — mostly with professional colleagues. As you might imagine, there have been quite a few comments, including this one from Dan: "I refuse to believe that the millionaire heiresses of the world are getting freakier than the girls in the barrio. And I don’t really want to."
