More housework, less sex for married men: study
France 24 ^ | 01/30/2013

AFP - The road to hell is paved with good intentions, as they say: the more housework married men do, the less sex they have, according to a new study published Wednesday.

Husbands who spend more time doing traditionally female chores -- such as cooking, cleaning, and shopping -- reported having less sex than those who do more masculine tasks, said the study in the American Sociological Review.

Why is this even a surprise? After doing all the house work, the men are exhausted! They have no energy left for sex. I think men are learning why wives doing house work have lot of headache excuses for not having more frequent sex.

After doing the laundry, washing the dishes and cleaning the house I sit down and watch some soap operas which leaves me with a terrible headache at bedtime. I can’t tonight.

And maybe liberal women don't care much for sex.

Marriages are made in heaven.

I always leave the toilet seat up, I tell my wife it makes it easier for her to clean.

There really is no problem if you learn how to combine the two. And no, I won’t give any details.

I'm the father of three and the family's main cook and I do a TON of housework. Still randy as a bonobo on Viagra.

Of course my wife's about as feminine as they come, in her dress style and hair and makeup and lingerie. That helps.

Considering the last 10 years of my marriage, I totally agree with you.

Fabric softener reduces testosterone dramatically.

Men, I can’t even describe the effects of changing a diaper on your libido.

On the plus side, no wife ever shot a husband who was washing dishes.

I suspect a lot of men would prefer to do housework than have sex.

Years ago, Ann Landers polled her mostly female readers “Would you be content to be held close and treated tenderly, and forget about ‘the act’?” And the vast majority or course responded the former.

Then columnist Mike Royko did a follow up survey of men, asking whether they would prefer sex with their wife, or to go bowling with their buddies. And the vast majority said they loved their wife, but they would prefer bowling.

He then realized that not all men like bowling, so her rephrased the question: “What makes your pulse race faster, and your breathing grow heavier: dropping a 40-foot putt, landing a 6-pound bass, bowling a 230 game... or seeing your wife waddle across the room in a negligee?”

No more housework for me.

i think the last question is the key question. specifically ‘WADDLE”.

Jiggle, muffin-top, and paunch would have also been acceptable to get the point across.

Washing your laundry or polishing your brass?

I'm not buying this study. I do all the yard work, half the housework, all the laundry, most of the grocery shopping, drive the granddaughter to school, dance class etc. most of the cooking, plus work full time; and me and the Mrs. beat the national average on a weekly basis. Heck if we get a grandkid free weekend we'll beat the average by Sunday kickoff.

Maybe they oversampled liberals in the study. Most libtard women are either unattractive, bitter, or both. There's way more beautiful conservative women than liberal ones. We have beautiful women like Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman. They have Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank.

Ditch the apron and try vacuuming in just work boots...

I've never changed a diaper, so I guess I had better keep it that way. :-)
