(Newser) – A man's wallet can carry a woman to the peak of ecstasy, a new study says. Based on surveys of 5,000 people across China, British researchers have found that “women’s orgasm frequency increases with the income of their partner,” said one author of the study. He called women's attraction to moneyed men an "evolutionary adaptation" that drives women to pick males they consider high-quality.

The female orgasm, previously considered useless for reproduction, could signal to men that “women are highly sexually satisfied, and hence unlikely to seek sex with other men,” a psychologist said. “What those orgasms are saying is ‘I'm extremely loyal, so you should invest in me and my children.'"
