No Scrubs?

It's widely assumed that if you're poor and/or out of work, the opposite sex (particularly if you're a guy) wants nothing to do with you.

If there's any validity to this story, that assumption may not be true. Turns out that the unemployed have no less sex (and with more partners to boot) than the rest of us, and that sexual activity does not correlate with income.

Now there are some confounding factors here, the first one that comes to mind being that I would guess that people classified as "unemployed" are probably on average younger and less likely to be married than the general population.

Nevertheless, good news for those of you down on your luck, I guess.
