More housework, less sex for married men: study
france24.com ^ | 30 January 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.

In France perhaps. In my house, I do the laundry and change the bedding and my wife thinks it is sexy and I get some action! On fresh clean sheets.

The downside is you’ll end up changing the bedding more often, but it’s a small price to pay. :)

At least we don't have to put up with the nagging.......

As for the house cleaning, I don't think twice a year is considered "more"

Maybe it’s because they (men) are too tired or have a headache.

And then once a month he still gets his head caved in because he didn’t do it right!

It depends on how you do it: if you do it reluctantly, with grumbling and whining, well you're not as sexy as you thought.

If you shut the hell up and get it done, then you're more attractive.

Nothing gets the wife hotter than me outside cleaning the windows. I take of my shirt to let her see my manly physique. It makes the neighbor kids stay inside, so the neighborhood is nice and quiet.

I don’t know about you, but I find it embarrassing to bring a woman home to a filthy house. And the ones that wouldn’t mind, I probably wouldn’t want them to know where I live.

I think this observation wouldn’t come as a surprise to the pickup artists that subscribe to the game philosophy.

Men and women are emotionally and psychologically hardwired to queue off of masculine and feminine signals.

I gotta disagree with this one. My wife comes home to a clean house with the laundry done, rooms vacuumed and all the dishes done and put away and later it’s like I got trapped in a rowing machine.

I do draw the line at cleaning toilets though, no matter how sexy she does the wink and nod thing...

Good women don't want submissive men. Never have. Might get the housework done easier ... but it certainly doesn't get the blood flowing south.

Help her out with the housework occasionally. Just be damn sure she's not helping you out with the housework. Women like help. They don't like men they can whip.

You've obviously never met my ex-wife.

I don’t think helping the wife take out the garbage is a bad thing unless you make the mistake of letting her back in the house......

I do all the cooking..I like to cook, am quite good at it, and she hates to cook. She enjoys a drink before dinner, and after the meal, I go sit down and she does all the dishes and cleaning up. Perfect arrangement.

It's NOT the frequency of the sex, it's the quality, the intensity of it.

They should try the "Italian position"..man on top, woman in the kitchen..

Is this sex alone or with your spouse?

And a well fed slightly buzzed wife who was fed a good meal she didn’t have to cook seems to me like a wife ready for some action!

I don't put much faith in studies like this - every couple that has been married for a sufficiently long time has worked out their own "arrangements".

I do the dishes, pots, pans, all of them. I run the dishwasher and put everything away afterward. I also take out the garbage and make the weekly dump run. I handle all of the plumbing, electrical and hardware issues in the house. I even share the cooking and grilling and do a load of laundry every now and then. Why? So I never have to clean the damn toilets, sinks or bathtubs. She never even asks.

read the study - Men in the study reported having had sex an average of 5.2 times in the month prior to the survey, while women reported 5.6.

while the husband is cleaning the house, the wife is out having sex........how else can you explain the differences in number of time each had sex!

Per God's plan for mankind, Men are supposed to defend and provide for the family and women are supposed to maintain the nest and nurture the babies.

How did we do? FAIL, FAIL, FAIL AND FAIL

Consequences abound. Impossible to list them all. We're way past the point of getting back to God's plan for us. Females traded in motherhood for the workplace; MISTAKE. It all went downhill from there, including males losing their unique role as the provider.

The few times I try it the Mrs just sits down and gleefully gets caught up on her fb and emails, then falls asleep on the couch.

[More housework, less sex for married men...]

...it just give the wives more time with certain electrical battery devices, ergo less sex.
