Science Says Women Turned On By Men Doing Housework

For any woman who gets turned on watching her husband washing the dishes, you are not alone, apparently.

A recent study found that “when couples share similar tasks rather than different, gender-stereotyped ones, it seems to deepen desire.”

“Contemporary couples who adhere to a more egalitarian division of labor are the only couples who have experienced an increase in sexual frequency compared to their counterparts of the past,” says the author of the study, Dr. Sharon Sassler, PhD, of Cornell University.

Historian Stephanie Coontz notes “Our ideals of heterosexual love have changed.” Love used to be seen as the attraction of opposites, and each partner in a marriage specialized in a unique set of skills, resources, and emotions that, it was believed, the other gender lacked. Today, love is based on shared interests, activities, and emotions. Where difference was once the basis of desire, equality is increasingly becoming erotic.”
