Men who help out around the house get lucky more

19 February 2014, 21:36

Abuja - Men who aren’t afraid of putting on an apron, baking a cake and then mopping the floor before ironing a few shirts seem to have sex more often than men who stick to changing light bulbs.

An article published by Time has cited updated studies of what young couples are hoping for in marriage.

While doing research for her book, The Unfinished Revolution: Coming of Age in a New Era of Gender, Work, and Family, New York University sociologist Kathleen Gerson found that 80% of women and 70% of men want relationships that shared bread-winning and childcare duties equally.

The updated research contradicted earlier findings that women were more attracted to men who tended to favour traditionally male chores such as taking out the trash versus traditionally feminine chores like cooking and laundry.

And the more housework husbands did, the more sex they were enjoying with their wives, Neil Chethik, the author of VoiceMale: What Husbands Really Think About Their Marriages, Their Wives, Sex, Housework and Commitment, found.

According to researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, wives’ stress level dropped significantly when their husbands helped out around the house and with the kids. 

And less stress equals a higher libido, so the husbands who help out around the house get the last laugh while their conservative brothers go without love.
