People who love grilled cheese sandwiches make more money than the rest of us. Well, based on the results of a recent survey of 4,600 people by the dating website Skout, we can only assume that they do, anyway.

Here’s why.

The Skout survey didn’t actually look at income, but it did find that people who particularly enjoy cheese sandwiches tend to have sex more frequently than those who don’t.

  • 73% of people who love grilled cheese sandwiches have sex at least once a month, and 32% of grilled cheese sandwich lovers have sex at least six times a month
  • Only 27% of non-grilled-cheese-fans approach this frequency.

So people who eat grilled cheese sandwiches have more sex. Interestingly, we already know that people who have sex more often also tend to make more money. We’ve reported earlier on a study that showed how people who have sex at least four times a week earn higher wages than their less lucky colleagues.

The theory being that those who are having more frequent sex are likely happier and healthier than those who aren’t. That state of well-being can lead to a more positive attitude and more confidence at work.

Of course, there’s a bit of a chicken and egg thing going on with this. For example, people who earn more money may be more appealing on the dating market and therefore have more frequent access to sexual partners. (It’s hard to date when you’re broke.)

Then again, grilled cheese is cheap. Find a partner who loves grilled cheese. Dating can be inexpensive, you’ll get more action in the bedroom and be on the fast track to a fatter paycheque.
