Gender Roles: Not as bad as we think?

Don’t let all the hype of anti-traditional gender roles fool you. According to a study of American Sociological Review in 2013 couples get busier behind closed doors more often when men and women engage in traditional gender roles; like men working on cars, mowing the lawn, taking out the trash, and women doing dishes, caring for the children.

The study found that couples who are both share everyday chores like cooking and cleaning have sex 3.9 times per week, and found that when men and women divide the household chores into their traditional gender roles the times per week increases to 4.8!

CRAZY! Apparently sticking to gender roles IS sexy!!!!
