More money = more oral sex?

 At least there is one piece of good news during these depressing economic times: It seems that women who earn more money may be getting more oral sex [Brazen Careerist via Jezebel]. 
So why do men go down as salary goes up? I'm not sure that I agree with the editor's logic that 95% of 'men only give oral sex because women ask for it' (I'd like to believe that some of them like it!) but I do think that women who are high achievers at work and earn more probably have the confidence to demand more in bed. We already know that educated women are more likely to receive oral sex, so the argument makes sense. 

It's a nice change from the usual batch of stories about how career women are threatening to not being willing to lie back passively either in the boardroom or the bedroom, we will hopefully be reaping the benefits. Happy New Year!

I think that confident women ask for it...

And I know that I'm more than willing to give!

If the woman in my life has to ask then it's pretty much time to leave.

Of course there have been those career (professional) women with whom I certainly didn't venture south.

that's a thought. I don't think I've been with any professional women
I'm going to butt in as I can't take the silence!

The rest of the Independent, which my club gets as its free, is so mind bogglingly depressing I'd look forward to your column Catherine and the retired? american terrorist's column.

It doesn't seem to come out much now so perhaps I'll ask for comments about what was once hot for me - Paris Hilton.

Last night's ITV2 show opened the eyes of the simple Paris adoring male that was me.

She didn't just reduce the British idea of a 'best friend' to a reality game show finding the 'best bitch'. Jade, first to be eliminated in a sadistic ritual, was the most innocent of the contestants - her idea of a best friend was more about trust and loyalty than looking good the morning after a night on the town, and agreeing with whatever top homosexual hair stylists think is the best look for her hair.

Paris also called all the girls back home 'sluts' last night. This was from the american porn star who won a self promotion award after she allowed her home sex movie 'One Night in Paris' to be marketed across the globe.

Face it Paris, named after a hotel, diamonds are the only best friends you're going to have. Jade's the girl for me now!!

Not money, but power. Power is sexy. If a girl is beautiful, intelligent, confident, ambitious, talented, successful, interesting, then she'll get more.
power sex

sort of come late into this, okay very late. My xcuse is reading the twee piece about Killing Kittens party (not another I hear you say, yes I reply yet another journo being 'daring').
I have yet to come across a girl who was all the listed and not a total egoist or screwed up. And the chances of finding a girl with all the listed superdooper qualities is probably nil.

I know a couple. Neither are egotistical or screwed up. But I'll admit they're rare.
well paid women take more baths!

maybe it has something to do with professional women and better personal hygiene?
