The number of heterosexual couples that go grocery shopping and do dishes together is on the rise since the 1990s and is leading to a more satisfying sex life, according to the Council on Contemporary Families or CCF.
Not to be confused with other menial housework tasks such as laundry or scrubbing toilets, there is something attached to doing the dishes, suggests the CCF study. Women that were elbow-deep in dishes every night or at least most of the time reportedly felt less connection and sexual satisfaction when compared to women that divided up the dishwashing with their spouses or partner.
Most men don’t care for doing the lion’s share of housework related to laundry and general cleaning any more than their female counterparts. However, they truly enjoy going to the grocery store and might even be considered a big turn on.
The biggest takeaway from the study is that not evenly splitting up or sharing household work and putting all the responsibility on just one person is not unfair but leads to resentment and a weaker relationship.
The study’s results also pointed to an uptick in today’s contemporary men and how they view their relationship and role.
Guys, the next time you are asked to wash a plate or pick out dinner ingredients remember that the payoff could be a better sex life. After all: happy wife,happy life.
