A study published in the February edition of the American Sociological Review concludes that husbands who engaged in more traditionally masculine chores — yard work, trash collection, home repairs — tend to get more action in the bedroom than those who gravitated to the more feminine tasks around the house — cooking, cleaning, etc.
“Our findings suggest the importance of gender display for sexual frequency in heterosexual marriage: couples where men participate more in core tasks — work typically done by women — report lower sexual frequency,” the researchers wrote. “Similarly, couples where men participate more in non-core, traditionally masculine tasks report higher sexual frequency, suggesting the importance of gender-typed participation in household labor.”
I also wasn't surprised to see a new show premiering on the Style Network called "Built." It's a reality show that follows several eye-appealing men who do home repairs. Given that it's a reality show, I'm sure they are also amateur actors and models. Still, any seasoned repairman will tell you it's easier to hammer nails without the hassle of wearing a shirt.
