    What’s Hot?
  • Author:
  • Published: Sep 30th, 2007

When reading romance we are swept away by the beautiful heroine, the dark sexy hero, steamy passages and happily every after. Once the bloom has faded – after 400 pages of sexual tension, steamy sex, and witty banter what happens? Well, that’s why we read romance; we’re allowed to dream that the hero and heroine live forever in wedded bliss. If we are so inclined, we can imagine they are dying to rip each others clothes off fifty years later.

Some would say their personal version of a real life happily ever after is a bit different. They find the man of their dreams and a few years later they’re wondering why their “hero” has trouble remembering to take out the trash. Suddenly he has developed what I call the “honey syndrome.” “Honey, where’s the (fill in the blank)? The hero of our stories may be capable of many things, but is he still all that? What makes a man hot? In my search for an answer here’s what I found:

porn-for-women.jpg“The Cambridge Women’s Pornography Cooperative, asked women, young, old, rich and poor, “What really, really gets you hot?” Armed with their finding they worked day and night to create Porn for Women.”

Prepare to enter a fantasy world. A world where clothes get folded just so, delicious dinners await, and flatulence is just not that funny. Give the fairer sex what they really want beautiful PG photos of hunky men cooking, listening, asking for directions, accompanied by steamy captions: “I love a clean house!” or “As long as I have two legs to walk on, you’ll never take out the trash.” Now this is porn that will leave women begging for more!



Caption: “As soon as I finish the laundry, I’ll do the grocery shopping. And I’ll take the kids with me so you can relax.”





Caption: “Ooh, look, the NFL playoffs are today. I bet we’ll have no trouble parking at the crafts fair.”



I can’t help but wonder, does watching your hero fold laundry make you want to do unspeakable things?

    Maybe. That was the biggest problem for me and my ex ~ housework (oh, and the whole monogamy thing). He was raised in a home where his mother was there all day and cleaned up after him. I was raised in a home where we all worked and we all cleaned up after ourselves, but we all had the big chores we were responsible for. My ex worked 30 or so hours a week; I worked 40+ hours a week and he rarely helped me with anything. I don’t get it. Even now, my best friend work 40+ hours and her husband doesn’t do a thing to help her; same with my sister and I have problems with it. The days where it was a woman’s job to stay home and take care of the cleaning, etc., is over ~~ Except maybe for a blessed few who can afford to live on one salary.

    Maria — I have seen this before and totally agree with it. It reminds me of that old Everybody Loves Raymond episode where Raymond and Debra are have some issues in the bedroom. Raymond tells Debra that he needs her to tell him what she likes and wants him to do. So they start making out on the bed and she say “Oh Raymond, I just love it when you . . . do the dishes.” It was so funny, and yet so true!

    The way my husband does the laundry really annoys me and I’d rather do it myself! But that guy in the photo is a hottie and he can come do my laundry any time!
