Chris shared an article yesterday from USA Today that shows that at least some women think that the things stay at-home dads do gets them in the mood for sex:
Stephanie Dulli of Washington, D.C., says “hearing nice things absolutely is romantic and a turn-on.” But she’s with the 25% who say “seeing your spouse as a great parent” or the almost 20% who say it’s when your spouse cleans the house or makes dinner that gets them in the mood for sex. “There is nothing sexier in the world than when my husband is giving the baby a bath without me asking. … If he takes it upon himself to do the dishes or the laundry, that’s such an act of service, and that’s another way he shows he cares for me. I find it dreamy.” Dulli has two sons, ages 3 and 8 months.
The rest of the article is a good read too. It exposes a study that shows that, while marital sex is not popularized in pop culture, most married women find it very important in their marriages. It tends to be thought that marriage marks the end of sex in a relationship but, according to this study, that is just not true.
On a more personal level, I have no complaints.
