More housework, less sex for married men: study
The road to hell is paved with good intentions, as they say: the more housework married men do, the less sex they have, according to a new study published Wednesday.
Husbands who spend more time doing traditionally female chores -- such as cooking, cleaning, and shopping -- reported having less sex than those who do more masculine tasks, said the study in the American Sociological Review.
"Our findings suggest the importance of socialized gender roles for sexual frequency in heterosexual marriage," said lead author Sabino Kornrich, of the Center for Advanced Studies at the Juan March Institute in Madrid.

They probably get less sex because housework is hard and after doing all that housework they are too tired to have sex.

IDK I am sure this is like not all the time thing because I work from home and I mostly do the cooking, I clean allot of stuff and do the dishs mostly because my GF is always working full time and I don' t want her to have to come home and clean when I am at home.
She actually takes the trash out because the trash can is on her way out in the morning when she goes to work.
I have back problems and neck problems so I can't just have sex whenever all day long like when I was 20. My gf is down ANYTIME, as much as I want usually allot more then I want lmao and that goes even if she did work all day, come home and clean, then cook dinner, which she does sometimes.. She would still be ready to go!
So I think it depends more on the women. I also think it probably has to do with the mans personality which I am very dominant if you have some fem guy doing all your housework I am sure he probably wont be getting very much.

Whatever the cause, it should warn folks to stick within their assigned roles if they want to keep up a healthy sex life.
