Are You an Artist or Poet?

If your answer is "yes" to either of these, according to a recent study at the Newcastle University's School of Biology, then you are probably gettin' more "play" than any of your non-artist/non-poet friends.

In the words of the study's head researcher:

"...Very creative types lead a bohemian lifestyle and tend to act on more sexual impulses and opportunities, often purely for experience's sake, than the average person would. Moreover, it's common to find that this sexual behaviour is tolerated in creative people. Partners, even long-term ones, are less likely to expect loyalty and fidelity from them."

Maybe that's why I know so few frum arteests.

Forget about whether or not this study actually rings true for creative types (which is certainly debatable). Also, forget about the preposterous notion that creative types all live bohemian lifestyles. I just want to know one thing:

Why is this a topic that deserves scientific inquiry?

Well, wouldn't you rather get paid to do research on this instead of the migration habits of dung beetles?
