    "Husbands have long known they can boost their chances of having sex with their wives if they bring home roses and chocolates. But according to recent studies, husbands are more likely to ensure a romantic evening if they pick up a mop and bucket instead. Research has shown that when husbands share in the housework, their wives tend to report more feelings of warmth and affection toward them, the husbands are more likely to report higher marital satisfaction and those couples have more frequent marital sex than other couples.

    According to the book, “VoiceMale: What Husbands Really Think About Their Marriages, Their Wives, Sex, Housework and Commitment,” by Neil Chethik, men doing housework is a kind of aphrodisiac for women. Wives were less likely to have affairs, couples were less likely to separate or divorce and couples were more likely to describe themselves as happily married if the husband did more chores. And the happier a wife is with her husband’s housework participation, the more frequent sex she has with him"

    I wash dishes pretty often and I'm the guy in charge of the trash removal duties at our house. Aside from that, Mrs. BBD likes it better when I stay out of her way when it comes time for some cleaning. She appreciates the gesture to help but she says I help best by giving her plenty or room to clean and not keep getting in her way.

    Imagine how much housework a Mormon husband would have to do.

    I'm vacuuming all the time and I still have to beg like a dog for just a little.

    But I do like to vacuum.

    All just lies spread by women.

    Women need to keep fit doing housework to be good in bed ;)

    As a friend told me, "Me doing the housework has boosted my wife's sex drive. While I'm cleaning up the house, she's out with her boyfriend!"

    I keep fit by going to kickboxing.

    I can't tell you how I feel when I go to do the dishes and the dishes are already done. It is a pleasant surprise and it puts me in a better mood. I can't speak for other women, but I appreciate it when someone can lessen my household chores. With less chores, I have more time to do the things I like.
