I'm not sure if our men understand the power that they wield at the bargaining tables in our marriages.
Never underestimate the undeniably raw appeal of a man folding and putting away a pile of cleaned laundry.
Maybe it's the shower deprivation, or the unceasing deluge of mommy and me preparations, or maybe the evolution of things, but a chiseled body including rock hard abs just don't do it for me anymore.
Not to make light of the situation, but let's face it, men are simple creatures. For men, doing the deed goes a long way. And it's not that we, women, see anything wrong with a little bump and grind, it's just that sometimes we're so overwhelmed with house work that by the time Marvin Gaye's cd Let's Get it On starts spinning in the cd changer, we're taxed.
I could be completely off base here and let me know if I am, but there is nothing sexier than a man on all fours scrubbing the kitchen floor or emptying the dish washer.
Want to rekindle the flame in the bedroom? Want to get us in the mood? Welcome us home from work wearing an apron (additional clothing optional), with dinner prepared and on the table.
This is a win win proposal here and frankly I am surprised that generations of couples before us haven't figured it out.
If men would just harness the power of carrying out some basic house hold chores, we can all get what we want.
