Now, 90 percent of respondents reported being "quite or very satisfied" with the general state of their sex lives. But when researchers began sorting through the 9,850 interviews, they found "found a correlation between socioeconomic status and sexual satisfaction, particularly notable among female respondents."

"People of a lower socioeconomic status claim to be less satisfied sexually, which especially applies to women, who seem to be more influenced by these factors," explained lead author Dolores Ruiz in a statement released Wednesday.

The more prosperous seemed to have a "better awareness of their own needs and a greater capacity for developing their sexuality in a way which is satisfying for them," according to the study.
