Are You Hot For Mr. Moms?

What attracts you to a man the most — a sense of humor, a great smile, a hot bod, keen intelligence? Apparently, a lot of women get weak in the knees for men who do housework. A recent study from Oxford University examined “marriage and cohabitation rates” across 13 countries and “compared them to attitudes towards the roles of men and women at home.” After questioning “13,500 men and women aged between 20 and 45 from each country about gender, housework and childcare responsibilities,” researchers discovered that women are hottest for men “they believe they will help out with household chores and make an equal contribution towards childcare.” In countries where men are less likely to pull their weight at home, women are between 20-50% less likely to shack up with them. Dr Almudena Seville-Sanz, of the university’s Centre for Time Use Research, said: This study shows that in egalitarian countries there is less social stigma attached to men doing what was traditionally women’s work.’” After the jump see how the 13 countries included in the study rank on the “egalitarian index.”The full list of countries’ rankings on the egalitarian index is as follows:

  1. Sweden
  2. Norway
  3. Great Britain
  4. United States
  5. Northern Ireland
  6. Netherlands
  7. Republic of Ireland
  8. Spain
  9. New Zealand
  10. Japan
  11. Germany
  12. Austria
  13. Australia*

*The study suggests that Australian men are more interested in “beer, sports, and the great outdoors” than helping out around the house. But seriously, who can resist that sexy accent?? [Telegraph]
