Will work for sex

I saw on the Today show that men who do more housework get more sex. Amazing, how that works, isn’t it?

According to the show, women who work at a job 40 hours/week also do 15 hours of household chores/week, while men typically do about 5 hours/week of housework on top of their regular job. While this is way up from my parents generation, it’s still a disparity, so when hubby decides to, say, make dinner, or fold the never-ending laundry, he gets justly rewarded with sex.

Yeah, I buy this. Help me out so that I’m not so over-extended and guess what? I WILL have more energy for sex. Not to mention that making dinner, cleaning it up, AND putting the kids to bed is a huge turn-on. I love a man who can bring home the bacon AND fry it up in a pan!  🙂

Kind of a tangent, but I thought I’d share it with you.

    This makes sense to me. The woman’s role isn’t to stay at home and take care of the house anymore (although God bless the ones who can afford it). If I work and my spouse works, I expect us to split the housework 50/50. No one says just because I was born with the vagina that it’s my duty.

    I think it’s important to point out that this isn’t manipulation on the part of women — it truly has to do with exhaustion. It isn’t so consciously connected as “If you clean up the kitchen without me needing to ask, I will be your kitten tonight.” It truly comes down to, “I am just too tired.”
