Men Who Help Clean Get More Sex?

Apparently, yes.

Did you host Christmas dinner tonight? If so, that means there was tons of great food, but that also means there were tons of dishes. Did your hubby help you clean up? If he did, we would love to know if you found him sexier because of it. Why? According to a new study, the more time you spend doing chores, the more often you probably have sex with your partner.

In the study, published in the Journal of Family Issues, researchers looked at a sample of almost 7,000 married couples and found that people who work hard in one area of their lives tend to work, and play, hard in others.

According to Constance Gager, lead researcher and an assistant professor of family and child studies at Montclair State University, Montclair, N.J., the people who work hard make sure to set time aside for sex. "Rather than compromise their sex life, this group of go-getters seems to make sex a priority," she says.

This may not seem like too big of a surprise for men, as it has long been known that their participation in chores can lead to serious brownie points with the madame of the household. But it also turns out that the same applies to women.

Still, the researchers don't believe it's all about the chores. It's about the individual people.

"We're not saying that housework causes sex," said Gager, "rather there are groups who 'do it all' and other groups who do not."

If that's the case I should be getting it twice daily. I have to cook and clean because she won't.

I must be the exception that proves the rule. Been married for 11 yrs I have been Mr. Mom for over a yr. We have not had sex for almost a yr now. Women dont respect a man who dose not work outside the house.

MBT Shoes looks weird, but it does not mean they are not have a fashion functions. They definitely don’t look like a new style from adidas or Nike, but thanks to more recent attention to design, many of the styles have changed. More and more people would like to choose them. Specially, in the cold winter, people’s physical become weakness than before. It is necessary for us to protect our bodies.
