Not that I think is a completely stupid idea with no redeeming qualities or merit, but I'm a little confused as to why the couple in question couldn't just send each other short texts over the course of the day and create essentially the same experience.

Do the dishes = make-out session
Take out the trash = handjob
Sweep/Mop = beej
Kitty Box = tie you up and torture your sack with a feather, pour hot wax on your eyelids then start blasting Chumbawumba on the stereo and get our hump on

That doesn't work. I cleaned her entire apartment and turned down the bed like a 5 star hotel for a promise of hours of hot sex and the coont changed her mind. I dumped her the next day over the telephone.

I had to go back and read it again, and still don't get the idea of a social network for two. I think you can do other couples chores in exchange for a little 'networking'...

I do all this stuff (well, except the kitty box since we have no pets) and if I'm lucky I get a kiss on the cheek. Must be doing it wrong somewhere...

When there is a reward system for sex, it signals the countdown to the end of the relationship. Most guys who aren't total nebbishes just say "fark it", dump your ass, and then go screw somebody else.

But that's not relationship sex, that's just farking. If you want to pay to fark a complete stranger, go for it.

Unless your paying for a threesome with your old lady, and Im not going to argue against that :P

I could see it as nice if treated as a fun game.

Scheduling sex works well for long-marrieds and/or those with young children. Trading for chores could be a variation on that.

I don't get it. WTH does a "social network for two" even mean? If chores or errands need to be done we just txt or email each other and stuff gets done. Sex isn't used for bartering because I like things to be spontaneous and unplanned. Saying "Hey if you do the dishes I'll take you to bed tonight" just isn't very romantic in my opinion. Plus things can come up and then it is a broken promise (like when my husband gets nausea inducing migraines he doesn't want to do anything but take his painkillers and sleep).

I just don't see the point. Seems like technology designed to make life more difficult. Plus who needs to flirt with their husband through Facebook? I find that disturbing and hate seeing people do that crap. I don't want private moments and affections with my husband broadcast to hundreds of people. I consider flirting private.

Anything can be turned into a fun game though... But the point of these places is not so much "Fun Game" as is it "You do THIS, and then I'll sex you up"

And that quite frankly pisses me off.

///You wanna really fun game? Insert a small "Toy" with a base, put on jeans, and have your old man take you for a bumpy ride on the Harley. THAT'S a fun game!

There's a deeper issue at work if a woman is willing to exchange chores for sex. That means she's keeping score. A women who keeps score does not get into relationships, period. She might say she is and even think she is, but she's not. If she's actually reducing everything in a relationship to tit-for-tat, it's a stupid business transaction. She's basically a hypocritical, oxymoron fusion of hooker and prude.

Chores gotta get done, but responsible people do them when it's needed. It should average out over time. When I'm working long hours, my wife picks up the slack at home. When she's sick, I take care of everything. I have absolutely no farking idea who washes dishes more often; there isn't any effin' chart in the kitchen.

And given that her relationship status is "engaged" and she says she hadn't had sex in months, I'm guessing that wasn't the fiance.

Here's the thing, there's two types of "bartering for sex". The first type is basically what you think - the woman won't put out unless her man does something. That sucks and should never be done. The other type is a bit more playful - she offers the deal because she actually wants to do what she's offering. With the second type, it's more of a game. Each person knows the other will do their part even without the deal. In this case, she wouldn't offer a blow jay if she didn't actually have a desire to give him a blow jay. If he didn't take out the trash, he'd probably get the action anyway.

I agree but don't just blame the ladies. I can understand the temptation, but if your wife/girlfriend slips up and goes in this direction, as a guy you have to shut it down completely.

That doesn't mean you shouldn't help out around the house and use the mutual free time gained to good effect. But bartering... blech.

Agreed, and as a long married with young children person myself, the problems can arise if the playful promises are later broken due to one of a laundry list of unforeseen circumstances inevitably popping up. It's all really just a form of delayed foreplay that works in a lot of relationships, but when the goods aren't delivered as previously agreed upon there is a chance that rejection and a slew of other bad emotions rear their heads.

Your wife is keeping track in her mind and you're probably doing it often enough if she hasn't resorted to bribing you. Of course, if she isn't bribing you you're also probably screwing her missionary with the lights off once every month or two cause you're not forcing her hand.

2011-09-09 01:00:35 PM
The only time "chores for sex works" is if it is done to free up someone's time. As in, "I can't come to bed now because I have to get the last load of clothes out of the dryer, load the dishwasher, make the kids lunches, let the dog out for a few minutes and iron your shirt for work tomorrow." If the guy offers to handle a couple of the tasks, he is much more likely to get a little than if he says "make it snappy, it won't suck itself ya know!".
