Research finally tells us what we knew all along.
Turns out, when it comes to sex, most women aren't driven by libido but by a need to get their partner to haul the trash out. At least that's the conclusion of "Why Women Have Sex," a new book on the sex habits of women. (Will the authors' next book be ... "Why Women Like Backrubs"?)
The authors interviewed 1,000 women, and a whopping 84 percent admitted to using sex as a bargaining chip to get things done or just to keep peace in the house. Most women, especially moms, have so much cluttering our minds, it's hard to get turned on.
Here are some reasons women (both single and married) said they do the deed.
- To relieve the boredom
- To give me something to do
- In return for a household chore
- I feel sorry for the guy
- Because he bought me a nice dinner
Very, very low on the list is a burning desire to quench an insatiable lust. Hmm. Don't tell our husbands that!
