SAN ANTONIO - Couples who follow traditional gender roles to accomplish household chores have sex more often than couples who share so-called men's and women's work.
That's according to a study at the University of Washington that found sexual frequency was strongly linked to the types of duties each spouse performed.
More traditional couples were intimate 1.6 times more per month than couples where the husband did all the traditionally female chores.
However, researchers say these findings are no excuse for men not to help out around the house.
That can increase conflict and lower a woman's marital satisfaction.
