According to the research, led by Eric Corty, from the Behrend College in Erie, Pennsylvania has shattered many long held beliefs and perhaps given some "breathing space" for us guys.
According to the research, "action" lasting between three and seven minutes was ‘adequate’, but anything less was ‘too short’ and beyond 13 minutes was ‘too long’. A word of caution, the action donot include "prep work".
This extraordinary research published in the international Journal of Sexual Medicine was supposedly designed to help calm couples’ unrealistic beliefs who believed in night long Marathon and anything less was considered a "affront" to "horsepower"
I was just wondering is America trying to push their "Fast Food" culture here also or is it really "its Quality NOT the quantity that Matter"
But hold on Guys, it donot end here especially for the Lazy married folks who don't pull their weight when it comes to housework and child care. A recent book "The Lazy Husband: How to Get Men to Do More Parenting and Housework," suggests that equitable sharing of housework can lead to a happier marriage and more frequent sex. Literally speaking "No Gain without Pain"
I now personally think that the research by Eric Corty is a Grand Conspiracy to get the men to Slog more at Home. It almost sounds like a efficiency consultant saying "We helped you save 1 Hr there, you spend that 1 Hr here" and the Guys sheepishly replying "I rather spend my 1 Hr. there"
This "line of blackmailing" has already yielding result in US. In the U.S., time-use diary studies show that since the '60s, men's contribution to housework doubled from about 15 percent to more than 30 percent of the total. Over the same period, the average working mother reduced her weekly housework load by two hours.
