Sleeping your way to the middle...

Sleeping your way to the middle
Arthur Brief from Tulane University has researched how sex sells in the workplace. Not so well, apparently, unless women using their sexuality have given up shooting for the top in favor of landing in the middle.

Go to the website to listen to the whole story.

I'm a little skeptical of the methods used, but I believe the conclusion.

He also makes some comments about people needing to be cautious about doing things like opening doors or carrying not-that-heavy boxes for women in the workplace as that proliferates the view that women are the weaker sex. He wasn't saying that all chivalry should be squished; he was just saying that there needs to be caution about the impression that it can give.
