Of COURSE they get more sex, their partners have more energy!<br><br><a href="http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080306/ap_on_re_us/sharing_chores;_ylt=AoYhkfxre0WfrWHSas07sA9H2ocA" target="_blank">http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080306/...HSas07sA9H2ocA</a><br><br><i>American men still don't pull their weight when it comes to housework and child care, but collectively they're not the slackers they used to be. The average dad has gradually been getting better about picking himself up off the sofa and pitching in, according to a new report in which a psychologist suggests the payoff for doing more chores could be more sex.</i>

I need to passthis on to dh. At the very least maybe then he'd put his dishes up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

Sounds like a great way to negotiate. This could work with my dh.<br><br>
"Hey babe, your chances of tapping this go up significantly if you clean up the living room today while I'm at work."<br><br>
I am going to pass this one on to him.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Nothing is sexier to me than a man washing dishes. I am MUCH more accommodating to DH when he helps out for one I'm not as tired from doing things alone.
