DOES SHARING CHORES LEAD TO BETTER SEX?
Does Sharing Chores Lead to Better Sex?

Married men and women who share traditional household chores report having more sex than those who share so-called men’s and women’s work, according to a new study conducted at the University of Washington.

 

Additional studies have established that husbands got more sex if they did more housework, suggesting that sex was swapped for chores done. However, those studies did not take into consideration the types of chores the husbands were doing.

 

This latest study, published in the journal American Sociological Review, reveals that sex isn’t a bargaining tool. As an alternative, sex is associated with the types of chores each spouse completes.

 

Married men and women who follow traditional gender roles around the home – wives doing the cooking, cleaning, and shopping...and... men doing yard work, paying bills, and taking care of the cars  – reported more sex.

 

“The results show that gender still organizes quite a bit of everyday life in marriage,” said co-author Julie Brines. “In particular, it seems that the gender identities husbands and wives express through the chores they do also help structure sexual behavior.”
