Dear Maura,

My wife will only have sex with me if I do housework. If I empty the dishwasher it’s straightforward, mission position sex.
 
But if I wash floors, bathroom and change the sheets then it’s head and she goes on top. I just want to inspire all men who hate housework to get into this idea.
 
Our sex life has never been as good and our house has never been so clean. My wife is happy because she hates cleaning of any sort and that makes her more in the mood for some lovin’.
 
I don’t want to seem like a wet rag but I’m a bit worried about how long this could last. What if the mood goes off her and me for that matter?
 
Maura says: You’ve come up with an idea to keep your house and your sex life shiny and new. Yet you are worried that the novelty could wear off and what happens after that is of particular concern to you. What was your sex life like before this new routine?
 
How did the ‘housework in exchange for sex’ come about? Your wife seems to be the one running the show and maybe this is your opportunity to start taking a stand, let her to do the work and you take charge of the reward.
