Dr. Nick Drydakis is a senior lecturer in economics of the Lord Ashcroft International Business School at Anglia Ruskin University in the U.K. and Research Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Labor in Germany.

But here’s the thing. To make a lot more money, you’re going to have to have a lot more sex. So, let’s dive into the data.
