Men Who Do Housework Have More Sex

Share Article discovers ironing, vacuuming and mopping turn wives on.

For Valentine's Day recommends men give their sweethearts a gift that will put a smile on her face: help her out with household chores.

The 2008 report commissioned by US Council of Contemporary Families still applies in 2012: "When men do more of the housework, women's perceptions of fairness and marital satisfaction rise.” In addition, Psychologists Claire Rabin and Pepper Schwartz say "there's a direct correlation between men doing more housework and the frequency of sex, and wives reported greater feelings of sexual interest and affection for husbands who participated in housework."

Andrea Lyons, Chief Passion Curator of states, “For some women it may be the way the muscles bulge while their man is moving a mop/vacuum/iron or the lack of a shirt and low hanging jeans while their partners are doing their chores. For the rest of us - it’s because the chore assistance leaves us giddy with relief, freeing up all sorts of energy for other activities. Throw in some childcare and who knows what will happen!”

Other studies report being the sole person in a marriage to clean the toilet and scrub the floors is definitely not an aphrodisiac. In fact, men who claim to support feminist ideas only do an average of four minutes more housework each day than traditional men with openly "macho" belief systems. The message sent to the woman when a man does so little around the house is a lack of respect for her. When the woman feels more respected in the relationship, she in turn gives more to her mate and the relationship prospers. The result is a more successful, happier marriage.
