The More Housework Married Men Do, The Less Sex They Have

By Robert Paul Reyes

"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."

If a husband washes the dishes, and dusts the furniture, his wife may share Good Housekeeping articles with him, but chances are she won`t be inspired to make love to him.

What does a woman want? She wants a man who will change the oil in her car, cut the grass, and repair the dripping faucet in the bathroom.

She doesn`t want an apron-wearing wimp who brags about having a dust-free living room and a grease-free kitchen.

Dude, compliment your wife when she does housekeeping, but don`t you dare don an apron.

This may sound sexist but if a man does manly things around the house, and a woman keeps the place clean, harmony and good sex will prevail.
