You are never too old to believe anything thrown at you, however preposterous it seems.
Apparently, men who help with the housework have a better sex life, a study suggests. Researchers, and there are many of them these days, asked over one thousand couples how frequently they were intimate. They found it was more often where the man felt he had made a contribution to the household chores.
The study, published in the Journal of Family Psychology, flies in the face of previous research, which found that men who do more housework have less sex.
Study author Matt Johnson, of the University of Alberta, said: ‘Rather than avoiding chores in the hopes of having more sex as prior research would imply, men are likely to experience more frequent passion when they simply do their fair share.’
Tell it to the Marines, was my first reaction. However, on second thought, as the difference between genders, and their odd comportments in our gone-crazy society these days, the unbelievable becomes more palatable and psychology points the way to uncharted horizons.
The result is all in the mind, although no logical explanation seems available for why the sharing of housework makes more men active in the bedroom.
Be that as it may, it is still good news for those whose languidity in the performance of their conjugal duties is far too mediocre for comfort, to take heed, put on an apron and dedicate themselves to the kitchen sink.
Perhaps then, a winning streak in the bedroom will surprisingly engulf them to the eternal pleasure of their partners.
