Hey stay-at-home dads! CNN says you’re too sexy for your stroller. Here’s how they know:
“There’s no research on the subject, but single ladies and married moms alike seem to find stay-at-home dads hot.”
Similarly, there’s no research on the subject, but single guys and married dads alike seem to find stay-at-home moms unshowered with traces of peanut butter in their hair. I don’t need research. I just know.
But how do we know that at-home dads are hot? According to CNN, there are three reasons:
- Women like baby-loving men. A 2006 study (research!) found that women prefer men who like babies.
- SAHDs have lower levels of testosterone. A biological anthropologist reported that men with lower levels of testosterone are more likely to enjoy spending time with children, which women dig. That kind of sounds like she’s assuming that all SAHDs have lower levels of manly juice without actually coming out and saying that. Wait a minute, that is what she is saying, at least according to the article.
- “Chore-play” is sexy to women. Studies show that women whose husbands help out around the house tend to want more sex. Which kind of sounds like being married to a SAHD would pretty much guarantee hot sex, that is, assuming he has time to shower and there are no kids in feety pajamas in the bed.
Having been a stay-at-home mom, I can assure you that no one ever reported to CNN that my SAHM sisters and I were particularly sexy. Frazzled and exhausted, yes, but men generally don’t troll Mommy & Me for dates. At least I hope not.
Despite the Google searches for “sex mom” that have somehow brought God-knows-who to my web site for nearly a decade now, there has not been a Playboy Playdate Playmate of the Year, as far as I know.
So kudos to the hot, new SAHDs for bringing the sexy to the same job we moms have been doing for generations without all that lusty appeal. It sure looks good on you, fellas.
