From VOA Learning English, this is the Health & Lifestyle report.

这里是美国之音慢速英语健康和生活方式报道。

Some men may think it is not their job to help with housework. They may think that it is a woman’s job to wash clothes or clean up after a meal.

一些男人可能认为帮助做家务不是他们的份内事。他们认为洗衣服和饭后收拾是女人干的事。

But a new study shows these men may want to think again.

但是一项新的研究表明,这些男人可能要重新考虑了。

The study found that a man who helped around the house not only has more sex with his partner; he also has a really good sex life.

该研究发现,帮忙干家务的男人不仅和伴侣有更多性生活,而且性生活也更美好。

It is time to face facts.

现在是时候面对现实了。

Women find a man washing dishes very sexy.

女人发现洗碗的男人很性感。

And now there is scientific evidence to prove it.

而现在有科学证据来证实这点。

A new study suggests that men who do their share of housework have better sex lives.

一项新研究表明,帮忙做家务的男人有更美好的性生活。

Matt Johnson is an assistant professor in the Department of Human Ecologyat the University of Alberta. He remembered reading about an earlier study on housework. That study claimed that men who did little or no work at home had more sex.

马特·约翰逊(Matt Johnson)是阿尔伯塔大学人类生态学系的助理教授。他记得看过一篇关于家务的早期研究。该研究称,男人少做或不做家务有更多性生活。

Johnson told Medical News Online that this claim does not seem to ring true. He said it does not support his experience as a couple’s therapist. In that job, he provided advice to married couples and others on personal relationships.

约翰逊对《医疗新闻在线》表示,这种说法听着就不像真的。他说,这和他作为夫妻治疗师的经验不符。在这项工作中,他向已婚夫妇等人就人际关系提供建议。

So, Johnson helped organize the new study to re-investigate the relationship between dividing household duties and sex lives.

因此,约翰逊帮助筹备了这项新研究,来重新调查分配家务和性生活之间的关系。

He and the other researchers examined information about 1,338 couples. These men and women were part of a German project on relationships.

他和其他研究人员调查了大约1338对夫妻的信息。这些男女参与了德国一项人际关系的项目。

For that project, researchers asked each male partner about the amount of housework they did. They asked the men what household chores they did, and whether the level of work was similar to that of their partner.

在该项目中,研究人员询问了每对夫妇他们做了多少家务。他们问了男人他们做了什么家务,做家务水平是否近似于他们的伴侣。

The researchers looked each partner's sexual satisfaction and sexual activities rates one year later.

一年之后研究人员分析了每对夫妻的性满意度和性活动率。

The results showed no link between the amount of housework a man did and a couple's sex life. It was the idea of “fairness” that made the most difference.

结果表明,男人做的家务数量和夫妻性生活之间没有任何联系,是公平的想法造成了最大差异。

The men who thought they did a fair part of the household chores had sex more often with their partner. And both partners reported their sex life being more satisfying.

认为自己做了公平份额家务的男子同伴侣的性生活更频繁。夫妻双方都称性生活更加满意。

So, men, get to work. Wash those dishes! Make the bed! The study did not ask why you are cleaning – just that you are cleaning.

因此,男人们,开始干活吧。洗碗、铺床!这项研究并没有调查你为什么要打扫--既然你正在打扫。

Johnson and his colleagues reported their findings in the Journal of Family Psychology.

约翰逊和他的同事将他们的研究结果发表在《家庭心理学》杂志上。
