(KTVI) – Men who help with the housework tend to have less sex. That’s according to a new study. The research done at the University of Washington suggest that heterosexual couples have more sex when each partner takes on traditional gender roles.

Couples who split some of the household chores reported having an average of five sexual encounters each month.  But in those homes where the man stuck to his ‘manly’ duties, the couples had an average of six and a half sexual encounters per month.
