Being manly pays off. You can sit in front of the TV with a beer by your side while your wife is in the kitchen cooking your meal. And if she complains about you being too slack you she’ll get her reward when it’s bed time.
A new study led by the Center for Advanced Studies at the Juan March Institute in Madrid, Spain, found that couples have more sex if they stick to what they do best.
Simply put, women have to do lots of ironing and cooking and men fix the house’s wobbly fence. If you do your share, ladies and gentlemen everything will work out fine once you’re under the sheets.
The study co-authored by University of Washington sociologist Julie Brines found that women and men who do their traditional household duties have more sex than those who don’t. ”Our findings suggest the importance of socialized gender roles for sexual frequency in heterosexual marriage,” said lead author Sabino Kornrich.
Based on a survey men said they had sex 5.2. times a month while women 5.6 times a month.
However, the authors of the study warned against men hanging up their aprons because those who are lousy “could increase conflict in their marriage and lower their wives’ marital satisfaction.”
