Trade Ya: Wash My Dishes For A Blow Job?

A recent post from Apt 11D pointed me to an article in The Atlantic about how sex and household chores meet up. Previous studies on housework amongst heterosexual couples suggest that men believe that they do a fair amount of the housework, where as women think that they do the vast majority (and are usually right). Maybe I’m not the only one who gets extremely happy (although not quite turned on) by a clean house. However, I should note that I really hate cleaning, especially the bathroom. I know plenty of people who have a hard time relaxing and focusing on sexing it up when their place is a pig sty. How do you you seduce your partner when you have a pile of dirty laundry on your bed? The study in question suggests that the more housework you do, the more likely you are to enjoy some shared sexy time with your partner. I wonder what it says about those who live solo and are single, but have very immaculate households? The Atlantic article is also keenly points out that quantity and quality don’t always match up, and that this study only looked at quantity; more isn’t necessarily better. However, apparently the more you clean up, the more likely you are to score – so then you can work on that quality issue. As for me? Right now my kitchen is spotless.
