Quick, guys! Fix the car, take out the garbage. Just don't do the dishes.
A Spanish-US sociological study shows husbands who spend more time doing traditionally female chores - cooking, cleaning and shopping - report having less sex than those who perform more masculine tasks.
"Our findings suggest the importance of socialized gender roles for sexual frequency in heterosexual marriage," wrote lead author Sabino Kornrich. "Couples in which men participate in traditionally masculine tasks - such as yard work, paying bills and auto maintenance - report higher sexual frequency."
Meanwhile, those who split the chores more along traditional gender lines both report enjoying more whoopee. However, the authors stop short of advising husbands to hang up their aprons.
