Study: Men Who Do Housework Have More Sex

Audio: http://av.voanews.com/clips/VLE/2015/12/03/4112d2e2-5524-43a1-b5b0-fdf0cfee4368_hq.mp3

From VOA Learning English, this is the Health & Lifestyle report.

Some men may think it is not their job to help with housework. They may think that it is a woman’s job to wash clothes or clean up after a meal.

But a new study shows these men may want to think again.

The study found that a man who helped around the house not only has more sex with his partner; he also has a really good sex life.

It is time to face facts.

Women find a man washing dishes very sexy.

And now there is scientific evidence to prove it.

A new study suggests that men who do their share of housework have better sex lives.

Matt Johnson is an assistant professor in the Department of Human Ecology at the University of Alberta. He remembered reading about an earlier study on housework. That study claimed that men who did little or no work at home had more sex.

Johnson told Medical News Online that this claim does not seem to ring true. He said it does not support his experience as a couple’s therapist. In that job, he provided advice to married couples and others on personal relationships.

So, Johnson helped organize the new study to re-investigate the relationship between dividing household duties and sex lives.

He and the other researchers examined information about 1,338 couples. These men and women were part of a German project on relationships.

For that project, researchers asked each male partner about the amount of housework they did. They asked the men what household chores they did, and whether the level of work was similar to that of their partner.

The researchers looked each partner’s sexual satisfaction and sexual activities rates one year later.

The results showed no link between the amount of housework a man did and a couple’s sex life. It was the idea of “fairness” that made the most difference.

The men who thought they did a fair part of the household chores had sex more often with their partner. And both partners reported their sex life being more satisfying.

So, men, get to work. Wash those dishes! Make the bed! The study did not ask why you are cleaning – just that you are cleaning.

Johnson and his colleagues reported their findings in the Journal of Family Psychology.

Learn English with STAR WARS!

Can you learn English by watching a space fantasy from 1977? Absolutely! In order to get ready for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, I re-watched the original Star Wars film. Watch this video and follow the adventure, as I look at dialogue and discuss scenes from the movie. I will teach you vocabulary, phrases, and grammar used in the movie.

My Way – Frank Sinatra

Video: https://youtu.be/6E2hYDIFDIU

And now the end is near

And so I face the final curtain

My friend, I’ll say it clear

I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain


I’ve lived a life that’s full

I travelled each and every highway

And more, much more than this

I did it my way


Regrets I’ve had a few

But then again too few to mention

I did what I had to do

And saw it through without exemption


I planned each chartered course

Each careful step along the by way

And more, much more than this

I did it my way



There were times

I’m sure you knew

When I bit off more than I could chew


But through it all, when there was doubt

I ate it up, and spit it out

I faced it all, and I stood tall

And did it my way


I’ve loved, I’ve laughed, and cried

I’ve had my fail, my share of losing

And now, as tears subside

I find it all so amusing


To think I did all that

And may I say, not in a shy way

Oh no, oh no, not me

I did it my way


For what is a man, what has he got

If not himself, then he has not

To say the things he truly feels

And not the words of one who kneels


The record shows

I took the blows

And did it my way


Yes, it was my way
