Now let’s get right to what I know you’re asking yourself right about now: What the heck is “choreplay”? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like. As I recently read on FitPerez.com, choreplay is “the art of seduction by helping around the house”. It’s a fascinating concept, right? Recent research conducted by a team at the University of Illinois Chicago suggests that “men who help clean, take care of their kids, and do other domestic chores may see the benefits of their labor pay off in the bedroom.” Ladies, do you know what this means? These genius researchers have discovered a cure for the lazy husband! Can’t you just imagine how fast he’ll hustle to help with dishes and laundry if you drop these statistics on him over dinner? No, but seriously, what do we think about this one?
Now, I can’t say this surprises me in the least. The Man handles about 75 percent of the housework in our home and I’m certain that’s one of the many things about him that I love. On our first date I told him I can’t cook and I hate to clean (no kidding, he even joked about it in his vows!) and that he could either take it or leave it because I had a lot to offer just the same and believed wholeheartedly in full disclosure. He took it obviously, and he’s worked hard at getting me to commit to the other 25 percent of our chores, and in return for his willingness to handle the majority of what I hate most, I’ve taken responsibility for managing everything else (think: bill management, grocery shopping, BS errands, etc.). Put simply, my husband helps out around the house tremendously, but I still can’t be sure whether that equals to an instant turn on, for two reasons: 1. He’s been that way since day one and he’s always been hot to me, so I wouldn’t have any other time to compare it to, and 2. Sometimes his obsession with cleaning actually has the opposite effect on me because all I want to do it cuddle and he’s like “just let me finish steaming the floors and take out the trash first babe.” (I mean, what the hell!?!)
So I guess for me the jury’s still out on this one! Ladies, can you confirm or deny these findings? I’m really dying to know what you think!
