Stress & Sex, Not a Good Combo for Working Parents.

A new study by CARE.com has found that 62 percent of “working parents revealed that they are too stressed from managing their jobs and their families to go to the gym, call a friend or have sex with their spouses.” In a study which examined parents’ childcare arrangements as well as levels of work-life stress, Care.com’s editor-in-chief, also a Mommy Tracked contributor, said, “It’s no surprise that moms who are toting buzzing BlackBerries in their bags chockfull of work e-mails can feel tapped out and not eager for sex. Stress kills the libido.” (March 2011)
