We test the assumption that the relation between sexual activity and wage is nonlinear, considering that the impact of sex on productivity and therefore on wage occurs during a certain interval of times which one cannot perceive if discrimination is not done. In other words, we must use different dummies to enumerate distinct frequencies. A similar procedure appears in Blanchflower and Oswald (2004) to test the effect of sexual activity on happiness. This is done in column (2) and the results show that this assumption is valid.
