Right now you’re probably thinking, “HOW RUDE!!!” But before you slap us for our impudence, allow us to explain.
Our inquiry is prompted by a news development. Our big sibling points out that according to a recent study, high-earning professionals with “extreme jobs” — defined as jobs that involve working at least 60 hours a week — have less satisfying sex lives than regular folks.
We’d like to do a little poll of our readership. Many of you are hard-working lawyers with “extreme jobs.” This poll is for you.
(If you do NOT have an “extreme job,” then please do NOT vote. Law students, this means you. We know that outside of exam period, you do none of your class reading, or any other work. You spend all your time working out, drinking at the local bar, or going at it like bunny rabbits. So please, wait until you’re all grown up, and toiling in the Biglaw salt mines.)
Here’s the poll:

We realize this poll is massively unscientific. We have no way of preventing non-extreme-job-holders from taking it. We don’t explain the criteria for an “satisfying” or “unsatisfying” sex life (although here’s one thought).
And there are lots of other problems, too. Those of you who majored or went to graduate school in social psychology, and designed lots of weird studies, can explain them to us.
But look, we’re just curious. So please, humor us, and take the poll — provided that you have an “extreme job.” Thanks.
P.S. This study is also timely in light of today’s release of the 2007 Statistical Abstract of the United States, which collects all sorts of interesting but random study data.
