Cleaning More Satisfying Than Sex...

Depressing reading for us British males from today's Times...

Apparently the average British woman spends more than 16 hours a week cleaning her home, a regime that “makes her feel in control of her life”, according to a survey.

She devotes 2hr 23min each day to cleaning, compared with 52min a day on her personal appearance.

Of the 2,000 women questioned, 6 out of 10 said that cleaning “made them feel in control of their life” and the same proportion found cleaning “mentally therapeutic”.

Three quarters of the women surveyed kept up this regime of cleaning despite being in full or part-time work.

Only 22 per cent of respondents enjoyed the process, but 64 per cent found happiness in the results of their labours.

Nearly half admitted some sort of addiction to cleaning; a similar proportion wished that they could cut down, and 4 in 10 said that they were “no longer in control of their cleaning habits”. A third said that they found more satisfaction in cleaning than in sex.

According to 76 per cent of respondents, spotless interiors in magazines were to blame for the compulsion to clean.

While 80 per cent compared the cleanliness of other homes with their own, 6 out of 10 mothers thought that a messy house would lead visitors to believe they were a “bad mother”.

The National Housework Survey of Great Britain 2006 was commissioned by the Discovery Home and Health channel who are plugging some programme or other that will show this satisfaction in action - yes, yes, yes, yes, yeeeeeeeessssssssss!

I hate housework! I can't say that I feel the way the article says these women feel.

I must be a terrible mother then!! And I wouldn't recognise a duster if you waved one under my nose.

After all, what's the point of having a fridge magnet that says
You can touch the dust, but please don't write in it if you don't leave some dust???


Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

Well I was hopeful that the ladies on this site are a little less inclined towards cleaning... (& more inclined elsewhere)
