STUDY: Husbands Who Do The Houshold Chores Have LESS Sex

STUDY: Husbands Who Do The Houshold Chores Have LESS Sex

30 JANUARY 2013

AFP - The road to hell is paved with good intentions, as they say: the more housework married men do, the less sex they have, according to a new study published Wednesday.

Husbands who spend more time doing traditionally female chores -- such as cooking, cleaning, and shopping -- reported having less sex than those who do more masculine tasks, said the study in the American Sociological Review.

"Our findings suggest the importance of socialized gender roles for sexual frequency in heterosexual marriage," said lead author Sabino Kornrich, of the Center for Advanced Studies at the Juan March Institute in Madrid.

"Couples in which men participate more in housework typically done by women report having sex less frequently. Similarly, couples in which men participate more in traditionally masculine tasks -- such as yard work, paying bills, and auto maintenance -- report higher sexual frequency."

I haven't done my own yard work or auto maintenance in years

...and I still have no complaints. But I wonder what would happen if I started changing the oil in the car myself?

Is this a new viagra commercial?


This is obvious. In general,

This is obvious. In general, men who do the chores have lost control in the relationship to their wives. In general, once a woman feels like she is in control of the relationship, the man who she is in control of loses his sex-appeal. Hence she will not desire to have sex with him, she may even make excuses like "I've never really liked sex" or "women don't think about sex like men do", etc.

I am willing to bet that most of these women in these scenarios are having extramarital affairs and the husband doesn't even think twice about it. If your wife/girlfriend isn't having sex with you regularly then she is likely having it with someone else regularly.

This is actually a very important topic and is related to Liberty. If men are not holding the dominant position in their relationships they are probably less likely to stand-up against corruption. This is why rulers over the centuries have attempted to set women above men in society and why you wee the various push to emasculate the men in our society and around the world.

Don't shoot the messenger.


How do you explain successful marriages where they're wealthy enough not to need to do chores themselves? *GASP* Now the woman doesn't have a homemaker role! What about marriages where the man is the homemaker?

I'm not saying men don't need to act like men, but you give the impression that being a man excludes chores entirely. Marriage is a give/take relationship.

PS: Some back information on me. I am indeed a male. I enjoy being a leader and being the breadwinner. When I get married, I'd have no problem with my wife making more money than myself. I also enjoy cooking and to be fair, I'm more organized and clean than most women.

No real opinion

No real opinion about the rest you say on that one, as I believe it's difficult to generalize too much... if it's even worth it.

But I want to say I *definitely* agree with not shooting at the messenger if possible, on here, anyway.

Just keep loving. :)

sort of right

Not sure about "having extramarital affairs".
But agree on "probably less likely to stand-up against corruption".
Women in general want piece and safety, if a man would rather fight for principals and this will cause trouble.

Spot On

The feminazis should be here soon to "correct" your neanderthal mind.

Maybe ...

Maybe they are so busy that they just don't have time to take off their aprons.

How many Billions of $ did the Govt pay to fund

this study?

Maybe the guys who don't help

Maybe the guys who don't help at home also lie about their sex-life?
Thought about that?

Point !

Point !

That'd be perfectly consistent with the "study" conclusion, anyway...

What? My husband doesn't do

What? My husband doesn't do any household chores...

Just don't

Please don't post that trash here.

Not for nothing

But the LACK of this kind of crap is why I COME to the DP.
Leave the Good Morning America fake news -well - to Good Morning America.

If you want to point out how the study was probably publicly funded that would be a worthy debate - otherwise - not so much.

I always put on my tool belt when doing the dishes

Works great!

At one time I thought that was how you earned sex.

It is amazing what can be negotiated in marriage.


Woe is me

With a case of dishpan hands.

Correlation ≠ Causation

Oldest rule in the book. Romney lost the 2012 election just as the migratory season of blue jays was peaking. Thus, blue jays migrating caused Romney to loose. It's a fool's argument.

What married man would admit to getting enough sex?

If he is cooking up a low cholesterol diet following Government guidelines, that could be a confounding variable in this observational study.

cholesterol is turned into estrogen and testosterone and the insulation that keeps the neurons from short circuiting.

Get rid of "them there hormones" and turn people into "meatheads". That way they can't even remember when they last had sex, but they don't care so much.

Rocko wants more.
Will you ever get enough, Rocko?
Never have!
