Do Bossy Women Have Less Sex?

A new study claims that women who take charge at home have less sex than those who don't.  It looked at women who made household decisions like managing the budget, shopping, handling doctor's appointments and scheduling social activities.   It says that women who take charge of such things "can find themselves waiting 100 times longer for passion than those who do things jointly with their partner."

Researches say that there's a sliding scale - the  more decisions women make on their own, the less likely they are to have sex. 

The co-author of the study, Carie Muntifering said, "‘Understanding how women’s position in the household influences their sexual activity may be an essential piece in protecting the sexual rights of women and helping them to achieve a sexual life that is safe and pleasurable."

The study claims that for men, making decisions by themselves does not relate to the timing of sex.  So it's only the little women who are expected never to make a decision.  Men, apparently, are expected to be "bossy." 

I guess the authors of the study want women to stop making decisions.  Women who don't make decisions clearly can't work outside the home.  They also can't work inside the home.  They can't drive, do housework, or raise children.  What's left?  Women could sit, smile and look pretty I guess. 

Oh, no - wait.  Women couldn't do that either. They'd have to decide what to wear, how to make themselves up, how to do their hair and they'd even have to decide to sit down.  In the era of Pan Am and The Playboy Club, this study seems to fit right in.

Sexist, much?
