iPhone App Discovers That Sex Makes You Happy

Sex makes us happy. This isn't any sort of shocking revelation, but it's one that's been backed up by an iPhone app called Track Your Happiness.

2,200 people opted in to the application and filed a quarter million status updates, which lead to one not so surprising (but probably quite pleasurable) conclusion: those who were having sex were more happy.

Of course, the nature of status updates is a bit muddy here as we doubt that those who claimed they were happy because of having sex were updating their iPhones mid-coitus.

Another link to happiness is being highly focused. We suppose that having clear goals in life helps in the satisfaction area, though then again, it could just be the combination for those who are highly focused on having sex.

    This news must be fake. Obviously iPhone users cannot possibly get laid.
    I'm kidding! But this seems like a pretty pointless app. There are a lot of things that make people happy. I put eating and getting a good night's sleep near the top of my list.

    But wait- didn't Steve Jobs say you couldn't think about sex while using his phone?

    You're being happy wrong.

    Actually, remember that Steve Jobs is happy as long as is over 7"

    Why does sex make you happy? Given of all things with the app it telling you how you are should at least say why, what would be in the enjoyment of not knowing?

    This falls in the same category as the rest of the farting apps on the famous App Store (about 95% of all the apps).
