Men who help with the housework have a better sex life, according to a study.

Researchers studied 1,300 couples and found that men who make a fair contribution to housework have a better sex life. Psychiatrist Dr. David Henderson said there might be some truth to these stereotypes.

“There needs to be a clear communication of what’s needed, what’s required and being open to helping out,” said Henderson. “Studies have been done also showing that men who help out around the home have a better romantic life, a better sex life.”

The study claimed men were relaxing on their time off (46%) of the time, while their female partners did child care.
