Reader Mark a href=”http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/personal/06/17/housework.relationships/index.html” emails this article /aabout women saying they are turned on by men doing housework:br /br /blockquoteJen Simmons loves to watch her husband Danny tend to their two little boys, mop the floor or hang a picture. She also finds it sexy.br /br /I am very turned on when he’s doing housework,” says the 36-year-old Camden, Delaware resident, a middle school teacher. br /br /”If there’s a sink full of dirty dishes, he knows I’m going to take care of that before I want to get intimate. If he wasn’t helping with the housework, I would not find that very attractive….br /br /And, says one expert, a more equitable division of household duties may lead to more intimacy in the bedroom.br /br /”When a man does housework, it feels to the woman like an expression of caring and concern, which then physically reduces her stress,” says Joshua Coleman, a San Francisco-area psychologist and author of a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0312327943?ie=UTF8tag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=as2camp=1789creative=9325creativeASIN=0312327943″emThe Lazy Husband: How to Get Men to Do More Parenting and Housework./em/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=0312327943″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”" style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” //blockquotebr /br /Reader Mark points out that the article is quite one-sided–only what women need for intimacy is made known.

And, Oh… what a turn on to see your sexy legs extending out from underneath the car while you do the oil change! /blockquotebr /br /I bet there are a number of male readers out there who feel the same way.

Judge, judge, judging. I think you should be ashamed of yourself and that you should be embarrassed. Maybe feeling that way will help you learn a lesson that you so obviously need to learn.”br /br /It seems that girls at a Massachusetts high school made a pact to get pregnant together.

Too few adults in the world of these girls are sending them the message that what they are doing and thinking is stupid. The media and much of our culture is blaring the message non-stop that they are cool. Who do you think they are listening to? I would love to see Ms. Lucas in the role of school counselor to these girls–can’t you just imagine the group therapy she would provide?
