If you were looking for a way to improve your sex life with your partner, we’re sure the kitchen is the last place you would look. Except scientists have just shared that housework could be the key to better sex because apparently, cleaning is a major turn on.

1,228 German couples were involved in the study and assessed over a five year period. The study found that those who perceived to be doing the same amount of housework in the relationship were found to be having more satisfying sex.


Dr Johnson, the lead author of the study, explained, ‘In any relationship, the amount of housework is going to mean something different based on the couple’s context, based on their own expectations for what each partner should be doing, and their comparison levels of what happens with other couples they know.’
