Do you feel less happy when you learn that your friend is more sexually active than you and enjoying a better sex life? Do not go by what he/she preaches and be happy with your sex life instead.

According to an interesting study, those who compared themselves with their peers who claimed that they were having sex frequently experienced a 14 percent lesser level of happiness.

"The factor that influenced the happiness of people with regard to the number of times they had sex is the frequency with which their friends indulged in sexual acts," said Tim Wadsworth, an associate professor of sociology at University of Colorado Boulder in the US.

"If their peers were more sexually active than them, the happiness levels were lesser," he observed.

Wadsworth found that those who had sex at least once a week were 44 percent more likely to report a higher level of happiness than those who had not had sex for a year.

For the study, researchers examined the data collected from 15,386 people on their sexual frequency and happiness levels.

They found a correlation between the frequency of having sex and their happiness quotient.

Those who reportedly had more sex were seen to be more happy.
