According to an article in the London Times Online, men who rake in the cheddar are also excellent at bringing home the orgasms.
(We've always thought aggressive boardroom behavior could translate into the bedroom. Alas, we could never keep a straight face with all those nauseating Donald-Trumps-in-training.)
Researchers surveyed 5,000 women across China and asked them questions about income, their partner's income and how happy they are with their sex lives. As it turns out, women who are involved with wealthy men report having more orgasms than those coupled up with middle class guys.
“We found that increasing partner income had a highly positive effect on women's self-reported frequency of orgasm. More desirable mates cause women to experience more orgasms," said Dr. Thomas Pollet, academic at the University of Newcastle.

"Women don't want to lie back and think of the gas bill...It's a lot more fun to have sex in the Ritz than the Swindon Travelodge. And to be ripping off Rigby & Peller underwear than M&S knickers," says "Cassie," a particularly guileless British women/ rich man lover, who thinks it's absurd to date someone who doesn't have "lots of money."
Logically, it doesn't seem that a healthy bank statement would travel south and make other parts more, uh, sizable, but scientists seem to think the old cliche of women flocking to well-off men is just as much a hard-wired truism as men flocking to large breasts. We're at all times on the hunt for a mate with the "best genes."
"Women's capacity for orgasm could be an evolutionary adaptation that serves to discriminate between males on the basis of their quality," said Pollet. "If so, then it should be more frequent in females paired with high-quality males."
