A study in the Journal of Family Issues concluded that the more time both members of a married couple spent doing chores, the more often they had sex.
I like to call it recognition for efforts well done.
In our household we both work but the majority of housecleaning falls into my sad little bucket since I work from home. Now I'm not interested in starting the entire stereotype debate of women's work etc; I know that the reason my husband doesn't help out as much but that has nothing to do with him thinking it's "women's work". He just has different standards of keeping a clean house. For him, the house is clean as long as the Department of Health hasn't slapped a burn order on our sheets and towels.
Hell, I know there are just as many women as men who are like him and lord knows I've met some men who run a tight ship when it comes to housecleaning. So let's drop that stereotype crap and agree that slobs come in all sexes.
So for any frustrated marrieds like me who freak out when Dearly Beloved has left a mess in the kitchen, bath, bed, etc and then freak out again when Dearly Beloved immediately suggests bow-chicka-bow-bow after claiming to not have enough energy to clean the kitchen, bath, bed, etc. I suggest you PRINT THIS STUDY OUT.
Remind sir or madame pigsty that one of the best aphrodisiacs is getting it on on top of a clean, sterile, Shamwowed surface.
Rock the housework and the house will work to rock you.
So do you think this is a crock dreamed up by the unhappy clean freaks of the world? I don't. I sure as hell know that this lady right here is a lot more "amenable" when the floors are clean enough to eat off of. Heh.source via BoingBoing
