Survey: Women pick money over sex

A survey conducted by America Online suggests women in the United States would rather have an extra $50 a week than a more active sex life.

The survey of nearly 5,300 women, conducted by AOL's and, found a majority of respondents picked money over sex when asked which they would like to have more of weekly, the New York Daily News reported Monday.

The Daily News asked New Yorkers on the street the same question and received largely the same answers, the newspaper said.

Two years ago, I would have responded differently, but in these times, money is definitely a priority over sex, bartender Tracy Miller, 35, said.

I'd take the money hands-down, said homemaker Fay Stuart, 27. In this recession, I'd rather have more money and security than sex.
