For many a married woman, the biggest turn-ons are having their husbands take out the garbage and putting the toilet seat down without being told. According to WebMD, for many women aren’t about receiving flowers or having candlelit dinners with their mates. More often than not, it’s the small things that women appreciate and consider to be sexy.
WebMD says that, for some, enjoying a cup of coffee at sunrise or watching a sunset together can provide special moments that many women find stimulating. Men who are considerate enough to help clean up after a meal or do the dishes can turn on their grateful wives just by pitching in with the chores!
Husbands who help with the children or take on some of the daily household chores are often appreciated more than they know. Even something as simple as picking your wife up from a hard day at work or unloading the groceries from the car after your wife goes shopping can be major turn ons.
But isn’t it always about sex?
For married couples, turn-ons are as much about sharing and caring as they are about sex. By comparison, very little non-sleeping time is spent in the bedroom as opposed to the time spent working, housekeeping, and child rearing. For most wives, it’s the small things that count the most and truly show love and affection best.
For all that they do, married women want most to be appreciated. Sure, buying flowers, candy, and expensive gifts helps, but what counts more is time and attention. Being helpful at home is an important part of showing you care. Saying you’re sorry when you’re wrong about something is also a turn-on for many women.
A walk together at the end of a long day can mean a lot to a woman. All of the little things add up, say most wives, and when all is said and done, contribute far more to a happy and healthy home life for all. It’s important for husbands to recognize that every woman is unique and the little things they crave can be very personal and different in each case.
What makes married women happy?
To be happy in a marriage, women most want their husbands to be engaged emotionally. Experts suggest that a husband should be tuned into his wife’s needs. A husband should be able to read his wife and display empathy and affection as necessary. By displaying these qualities, men can ensure their wives’ happiness within the confines of marriage.
Isn’t there more to married life than household chores?
Yes, there certainly should be more to married life than taking out the trash, but unfortunately the mundane tasks described above may be all that most women can expect from the men in their lives on a day-to-day basis. Once the honeymoon period of a new marriage has ended, sex can almost disappear from a couple’s daily routine.
There is plenty of statistical evidence to back up these assumptions. As many as 20 million marriages in the United States exist without love; not just lovemaking, but without kissing, hugging, or even touching! This one statistic represents about 13% of the entire population. To put it another way, one in eight Americans ain’t getting any at home!
Another frightful statistic claims that as many as 15% to 20% of all married couples engage in sexual relations less than 10 times each year. As this number suggests, Americans are putting aside thoughts of bedding their spouses in record numbers.
However dismal a picture this research may paint, we know that people are still thinking about and engaging in sexual activity, perhaps just not with their respective husbands and wives. Where women may be going for sexual stimulation and release is another question entirely!
Are women getting turned on outside of their marriages?
In the 21st century, women are as likely as men to seek sexual gratification outside of their marriages. Women want to be appreciated and valued for who they are. Husbands who take them for granted, showing them little genuine concern, are only asking for trouble. Experts say that no marriage is adultery proof.
It is estimated that more than half of all women will cheat on their husbands at some point during their marriages. A number of easily recognizable factors determine which wives are more likely to cheat than others. A recent Men’s Health Magazine article http://www.menshealth.com/sex-women/signs-cheating-wife lists a half dozen warning situations that may signal a wife is preparing to cheat on her husband.
Psychologists say that married women are inclined to review their lives, loves, and marriage every 5 or 10 years. These periods of reflection often coincide with the husband’s decade or half-decade birthdays. If you’re turning 30 or 35 or 40, keep a close eye on your mate because thoughts of infidelity may already be churning in her brain!
If she’s not getting enough sexual attention or she thinks that you may be cheating on her, your wife will also be more likely to seek solace in the arms of another man. One thing is for certain, to keep your wife in your bed, you need to keep her happy. Consider doing the dishes a couple of nights a week. It couldn’t hurt.
