Big Surprise: Sex And Alcohol Make You Happier Than Kids And Religion, Study Finds





I don't know why this is a surprise but it has been shown that sex and alcohol make people much happier than children and religion.

I am sure you are all rolling your eyes and going 'obviously!'  The test was taken by The University of Cambridge in New Zealand, who were looking at what it is that makes people happy.

Surprise, surprise.  Sex makes people delighted and so does booze.  Of course these might not lead to long last happiness - whereas having kids can (sometimes) - and sometimes religion gives overall enlightenment.  (but not always)

Here are the things that rate in the top ten for happiness:-

Sex
Alcohol
Volunteering
Meditating / Religion
Children
Music
Hobbies
Shopping
Gaming.

Oddly, the things that ranked up in the top for unhappiness were Facebook, but more so, illness, housework, commuting and texting!

The people who score on happiness were not just all about pleasure - sex and alcohol - but were also about meaning.  This is why volunteering, meditation, religion and children do score so high. It is all about finding happiness in different ways - not just from that delicious glass of wine or that fabulous orgasm or few moments of intimacy.  But intimacy does score high, which is also why sex scores high.  Meaningless sex would probably score pretty low and contribute to people's unhappiness.
