Sexual frustration is no myth, according to German researchers. Couples who don't have sex are more likely to feel stressed and to over-work themselves, said a team of researchers from the University of Gottingen.
German researchers argue that sexual frustration is a complex phenomenon not to be underestimated, according to a report on Spiegel Online International.
According to the study of almost 32,000 men and women, the act of sex can precipitate a downward spiral, pulling couples into a vortex of all work and no play, literally.
Lead author Ragnar Beer called his study the Theratalk Project, and it has found that the less sex people have, the more work they seek to "work" out their sexual frustrations.
Beer's team found that 36 percent of men and 35 percent of women who have sex only once a week take on extra work to compensate for their waning sex lives.
It's worse for couples who don't have sex at all. Forty-five percent of men and 46 percent of women who no longer have sex with their partner seek out other activities to replace their waning libidos.
More studies which are pretty obvious.

Dieter - “Ja, what is it, Helmut?”
Helmut – “I have discovered that people get frustrated when they don’t copulate.”
Dieter – “We will be the richest men in all of Bavaria. We will bathe in melted chocolate and have our pick of the broad shouldered prostitutes.”

We’re struck by two things in this study:
1) Germans, sexually frustrated? We would never have guessed.
2) And this goes back to point 1), people acting strangely because of sexual issues. The Dish likes to punch stuff. And Germany likes to invade its neighbors. Which proves, once again, that the Daily Dish is a better global partner than Germany.
