"There's a reason why opposites attract, says Lori Gottlieb. She argues that couples who are best friends and split the chores and childcare have far less sex..."

"A study called Egalitarianism, Housework and Sexual Frequency in Marriage, which appeared in the American Sociological Review last year, surprised many, precisely because it went against the logical assumption that as marriages improve by becoming more equal, the sex in these marriages will improve too. Instead, it found that when men did certain kinds of chores around the house, couples had less sex. Specifically, if men did all of what the researchers characterised as feminine chores such as folding laundry, cooking or vacuuming – the kinds of things many women say they want their husbands to do – then couples had sex 1.5 fewer times a month than those with husbands who did what were considered masculine chores, such as taking out the trash or fixing the car. It wasn't just frequency that was affected, either – at least for the wives. The more traditional the division of labour – meaning the greater the husband's share of masculine chores compared with feminine ones – the greater his wife's reported sexual satisfaction."

Its a fairly long article, but includes 3 videos and quite a bit of interesting content.

If a couple has a decent sex life, is 1.5 fewer times a month really that big of a deal? It's the difference between having sex 25 times a month and 23 times. So what.

Oh boy yet another woman bashing thread. Ugh, there is nothing wrong with equality and sharing household duties.

well the mean is about 5 in that study ...


so in that context 1.5 is pretty severe

I feel sexiest when I'm barefoot and pregnant and scrubbing a kitchen floor.
