That’s according to a new survey from Univia, which claims those who indulge in a bit of regular self-love are more likely to become managers. For the survey, 1,012 people were quizzed on how often they play five-on-one, as well as their job habits. Good news: if you spend time with Palm and their five sisters at least once a week, you are more likely to excel in the workplace in every regard. Not one to regularly engage in a five-knuckle-shuffle? Well, Univia found in their research that infrequent wankers earned an average salary of $44,006,  while those who jack off, or indeed jill off, once a week earned $47,076 on average. It sort of makes sense: if you enjoy polishing the pearl or bashing the bishop, the researchers say it could lead to a boost in self-confidence.

Univia added: 

The boost in self-confidence that masturbation was previously shown to cause may be one major contributor to higher paychecks, for it can take a certain amount of confidence and bravery to ask your boss for a raise.

In other words, masturbation may be correlating with the self-confidence boost needed to ask your supervisor to pay for what you deserve.

The study found that those who regularly shake hands with the milkman were eight per cent more likely to ask for a raise.
