Couples whose household chores follow traditional gender roles are having more sex.
A new study found sexual frequency is strongly linked to the types of duties each spouse performed.
More traditional couples were intimate 1.6 times more per month than couples where the husband did all the traditionally female chores.
Researchers say these findings are no excuse for men not to help out around the house.
That can increase conflict and lower a woman's marital satisfaction.
