Once again, science has confirmed what the manosphere already knows.
The Drudge Report today links to a story titled “More housework, less sex for married men.” The basic premise is that men who do too many of the traditionally female chores have less sex than men who do more masculine tasks.
"Our findings suggest the importance of socialized gender roles for sexual frequency in heterosexual marriage," said lead author Sabino Kornrich, of the Center for Advanced Studies at the Juan March Institute in Madrid.
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t help out around the house. Ian Ironwood has mentioned in his blog that he does nearly all the cooking at his house, because he’s better at it. Frame is everything. Ian cooks because Ian decided to cook. He took charge of the kitchen and uses it to show off his skills. He’s cooking because he has decided that’s what works best, not because his wife wants him to do it. He’s the Captain of his kitchen, not his wife’s kitchen bitch.
Balance is important in Married Game. Beta isn’t a bad thing, but it must be balanced by Alpha. Washing the dishes is beta… which doesn’t mean you should never do it. But as a general rule, it’s manly to take out the garbage, to do maintenance on the family home and vehicles. Make sure those demonstrations of Alphadom get taken care of first. And when you do decide to help with the less-manly chores, do it in a manly way. Don’t get nagged and fitness-tested into doing things. Keep your alpha frame. Do the chores that you want to do, on your own terms.
