NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Flirting at the office is not only taboo, but it could even take a toll on your financial future.

Women who cross their legs provocatively, wear short skirts or massage a man's shoulders at work get fewer pay raises and promotions, according to Friday's USA Today.

The newspaper, citing a Tulane University study, said 49 percent of MBA graduates polled admitted that they have tried to advance in their careers by sometimes engaging in certain sexual behaviors, including sending flirty e-mails and wearing revealing clothing.

The respondents who said they never engaged in such activity earned an average of three promotions, versus two for the group that had employed sexuality. Those who said they never used sexuality were, on average, in the $75,000-$100,000 income range; the other group fell, on average, into the next range, $50,000 to $75,000.

Tulane professor Arthur Brief said the study suggests that women should be careful about letting men open doors or lift boxes that aren't particularly heavy, because chivalry is "benevolent sexism."

"We argue that there are negative consequences for women who use sexuality in the workplace," Brief told the newspaper.

The 164 women in the study ranged in age from their mid-20s to 60.

maybe the less flirtatious advance because they don't need to do sexual favors or flirt to advance....

or maybe its because they actually focus on their job.... :hmmm:

That'd be my guess, if someone's spending their time getting "friendly" with other workers, whether they work hard or not they'll be percieved as flirtatious, rather than as a dilligent worker.

Yes, it pays to be a flirt. I wouldn't be getting a lot of hours at my summer job if I weren't flirting with the manager. She used to hate me until I started flirting, etc, with her. I wouldn't do anything with her outside of the job. She's not hot at all, but I gotta get paid, fo real.

In certain industries...

but on the whole, it's much more profitable to flirt outside of work

Keep in mind that when people bring up the part about "nerds becoming your bosses", they don't mean the nerds that wave light sabers and drive around party houses for hours because they're too nervous to go in...they mean the nerds who were smart and aren't going to go along with women's mind games.

It pays to flirt whenever the person you're flirting with wants to be flirted with by you. Otherwise, it can work against you.

maybe if they spent more time actually sucking the bosses dick instead of just flirting they would get somewhere.

Yep I had a really bad experience that time I was working for a supermodel.

Your bosses frown when you walk up and start spanking it right in front of them.

What a fool. Me offering to pick up a large box for a smaller employee and them accepting is "flirting", huh?

I think this guy (like so many others in academia) needs to stop studying the world and start joining it.

I've played "drop the pencil" a few times, and I'm doing fine. Of course, I didn't do it to advance, but just because I could...plus he was hot.

Of course that would have never popped into my mind if she hadn't just made the pencil comment.

Did you get all moved in? I may need your boxes.I did but I don't have any boxes to speak of. I just moved next door so instead of packing everything up I just took item A from my old place and put it where ever I wanted it for my new place.

So it is yet another chance for me to dissapoint you...is your PM box full? I have some of those things ready.
