Men who do housework may get more sex

NEW YORK – American men still don’t pull their weight when it comes to housework and child care, but collectively they’re not the slackers they used to be. The average dad has gradually been getting better about picking himself up off the sofa and pitching in, according to a new report in which a psychologist suggests the payoff for doing more chores could be more sex.

Wow. Really? This is a no-brainer. Helping around the house means you are 1) being considerate, 2) pulling your dead husband-father weight, and 3) equity in the household is just plain sexy.

After reading a lot of these “research” and “studies”, I’m just wondering the amount of money and resources that gets poured into this type of work that gives you conclusions on issues you already know. Like this one… men doing housework = more sex. I just enjoy the fact that now that “scientific research” has proven all these social conclusions… it now MUST be true. Ridiculous.



  1. Hey ladies…did I mention I wash dishes?

  2. It does seem that scientists have stepped up their “science of the obvious” in which they attempt to prove by a study what has already been established by experience.

    For example, I was shocked and amazed when studies showed that dogs are fairly intelligent.

    It was great to see science catching up what every dog person has known for untold centuries. David Hume wrote about this centuries ago in his comments on the reason of animals and he was hardly the first.

    Of course, scientists do some very worthwhile studies and research-but perhaps they should spend more resources on those endeavors and less on the obvious.
