DISCLAIMER: More housework doesn’t necessarily guarantee more sex.
Dr Matt Johnson, from the University of Alberta, claims that men who share a fair amount of housework with their spouses are likely to have better and more satisfying sex. He has based his research on a study of 1,300 German couples.
Although, the work differs and means different things in every couple’s life, the study is based on who is more of a presence in household chores. If they both have steady, full-time jobs then it becomes imperative that work is distributed in an egalitarian way for the couple to enjoy frequent and happier sex.
Cultural differences and the male-female power equation in a society are also defining factors.
Dr Johnson said, “Rather than avoiding chores in the hopes of having more sex, as prior research would imply, men are likely to experience more frequent and satisfying passion for both partners between the sheets when they simply do their fair share.”
Because, when one partner lags, the other will eventually pick up on the slack or let the work pile up. This leads to brewing of ill-will, bad feelings and a sense of being disrespected by the partner, which are not ingredients you need in your sex life. If you’re sharing work, these situations are very unlikely to arise and you will be able to have a better sex life.
