A story in the Times of London by Nerve sexperts Lorelei Sharkey and Emma Taylor (Em & Lo) suggests that if a man wants to get a woman "in the mood" he ought to start not by groping her — but by cleaning the house or remembering to take the recycling out. Em & Lo mention a recent book called Porn For Women, which consists of photographs of fully-clothed men doing household chores, making tea, asking for directions and saying things like, "God, that's so interesting. Tell me more." It's not that a dude with a vacuum is inherently sexy; it's more about the feeling you get about your man when he pitches in, they argue. Em & Lo interview Fiona, 43, who has been married for ten years. "My husband always complains that it's unsexy when I nag him, but how does he think it makes me feel when I have to nag him? Like my mother!" she says.
