STUDY: Equal division of housework may lead to more satisfying sex life

Now some advice for all you husbands out there.

If you want to have more fun between the sheets-- maybe you should offer to wash them!

A new study out says when partners have an equal division of housework-- sexual satisfaction improves for both.

It was published in the Journal of Social Forces.

Researches found that division of housework has gotten more even over the years.

In the 1960's women did about seven times more than men.

In 2013 that dropped to only about twice as much.

The authors say when both partners feel equal-- that translates to the bedroom.

One thing they found is that just because both partners are more satisfied that didn't mean they were having sex more often.
