Summary: Experts weigh in on the sex lives of lawyers. 

People may not admit it to your face, but let’s be honest. They’re obsessed with the sex lives of lawyers. I mean, look at Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience or CBS’ The Good Wife. Those are two shows where relationships and law keep your attention equally. But it’s not just fictional attorneys who the public wants to debrief. Just look at the media’s fascination with Amal Clooney’s marriage or celebrities’ fan crushes on Making a Murderer’s Dean Strang.


Whether it’s attorneys’ brains, beauty, status, or power suits, there is something that makes people obsessed with them and their sex lives. According to relationship experts, there are a few sexy theories about what happens when lawyers leave the office or the courtroom.

Lawyers tend to demand sex daily.

With high ambition comes a high sex drive. Or at least that is according to Redbook, which polled lawyers and found that they wanted sex daily. But just because they want it, are they getting it? That could explain some associates aggression or grumpiness.


Lawyers are likely to get frisky with their colleagues.

Lawyers are more likely than other professionals to pull a Jim and Pam and date their colleagues. According to a 2015 survey from Vault, 53% of those surveyed have had office romances, regardless of whether or not their firm allowed it. Considering how many hours lawyers work, where else are they going to find someone? Plus who else will get what you’re talking about when you complain about the partners?


Lawyers of both sexes are more likely to cheat. 

Being high-powered and having a lot of money can inflate the ego and apparently the libido! According to Bustle, there is a strong correlation between power and confidence, and extremely confident people are more likely to cheat. Maybe it’s because they’re so used to conquering that they feel entitled to as many sexual partners as they want? And if the above theory that lawyers date their coworkers is true, it makes you wonder how many married associates are banging each other. Well, that does explain the daily sex thing…


Lawyers are the “best of the best” in the sheets.

So if male lawyers cheat, why do their wives stay with them? Bustle reported that it’s because they are sex machines! The wives of lawyers reported that their husbands were stallions in bed who were gold medalists in oral. Combined with that insatiable sex drive, lawyers of both sexes are just too enticing to each other and the general public.


Some lawyers love a real life Pretty Woman. 

This may be one of the most controversial points, but come on. There’s enough lawyer with prostitute scandals in the news that make this one hard to ignore. Bitter Empire spoke with an escort who had a few lawyer clients, and she said that the reason male lawyers frequent a lady of the night is because they are overworked and want a release. According to the interviewed escort, the lawyers tended to be “fantastic” in the sack. Proving Bustle’s point.

While some people may dislike lawyers finding their own Holly Golighty, it’s slightly better than them cheating with their married colleagues, right. Right? Right?
