Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have blown the theory that lots of sex makes you a happier person right out of the water after their survey revealed that actually, sex has very little to do with how happy you are as a person.

The study used 64 couples over a period of three months, who had an age range of 35-65, and they actually found that the group who had sex twice as often scored as being slightly unhappier than the ones who were just allowed to have sex when the mood struck them.

Now we have to say, that is probably because when you’re forced to do something, no matter what it is, you will obviously enjoy it less, and study author George Loewenstein claimed:

Perhaps couples changed the story they told themselves about why they were having sex, from an activity voluntarily engaged in to one that was part of a research study. If we ran the study again…we would try to encourage subjects into initiating more sex in ways that put them in a sexy frame of mind.

The study ended by concluding that sex does make people happy, but when doing it as part of an experiment or trial, it will not necessarily be a good thing. Obviously.
