Taking Up With Billionaires


WealthymattersThese days I come across a lot of women who are keen to exchange their beauty to enjoy the benefits of some or other man’s resources.Most of them cut pretty poor deals and the others cut one or other good deal only to lose the benefits they just gained via the next poor choice they make.The following is a reality check for women trading on looks to get ahead:

‘We are happy that we were able to reach an agreement for the benefit and well-being of our son, Augie.’ With these words Linda Evangelista and Francois-Henri Pinault closed a fiercely fought child support battle.

Canadian-born Linda Evangelista is a Vogue cover model many times over, including on the current Italian Vogue.She was one of the biggest names in modeling in the late 1980s and early ’90s,At the height of her career, she famously said supermodels ‘don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day.’

Pinault is CEO of PPR, a holding company that owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Boucheron and other fashion lines. Forbes estimates his family’s net worth at $13 billion.He supposedly makes about $4million a year.Ladies,here’s the first thing to note: declared incomes and estimated wealth are complex issues.

The intercontinental twosome dated – sporadically, according to Pinault  – over about four months in late 2005 and early 2006. Augie was born in October 2006.After Pinault told Evangelista he didn’t plan to raise the boy with her,he supposedly wanted her to get an abortion , she willingly paid all the expenses herself at first from her roughly $1.8million-a-year income.But when a big contract with L’Oreal ended she needed Pinault to chip in.

Bank Balances And Orgasms


wealthymattersThe important bulge in a man’s pants is apparently his wallet. Women report having better sex with wealthy men.

Researchers have found that women’s sexual pleasure is directly linked to their partner’s bank balance — in fact, the wealthier a man is, the more frequently his ladylove has orgasms.

The researchers came to the conclusion after analyzing data gathered in one of the world’s biggest lifestyle studies, the Chinese Health and Family Life Survey which targeted 5,000 people for in-depth interviews about their sex lives, income,etc.Among these were 1,534 women with male partners whose data was the basis for the study.

They found that 121 of these women always had orgasms during sex, while 408 more had them “often”. Another 762 women ‘sometimes’ orgasmed while 243 had them rarely or never.

There were of course, several factors involved in such differences but money was one of the main ones, according to the researchers.Increasing partner income had a highly positive effect on women’s self-reported frequency of orgasm. More desirable mates cause women to experience more orgasms.
