One man’s unique approach to romance had the internet laughing and taking notes at the same time.
Earlier this year, a Reddit user who goes by the name dirty-ol-sob (OK, not a strong start, but stick with me here) shared his interesting approach to simultaneously scoring points with his wife and possibly scoring for himself.
“My wife really likes it when I do housework so I sent her these pictures while she was at work hoping it would turn her on,” dirty-ol-sob wrote in his post to Reddit’s r/Funny page. The images that followed were strong enough to earn him nearly 100,000 upvotes on the site!
Among the guy’s sexy photos were him making pouty lips while washing dishes, him winking while putting a laundry pod into the washing machine and him looking like he’s enjoying vacuuming way too much.
The post also attracted more than 2,100 comments, with many praising his efforts. In one exchange, dirty-ol-sob admitted that he may have been more focused on taking the perfect picture than getting his house in order.
“I was definitely more into the pictures than the cleaning,” the husband wrote when another user said they respected the effort that went into staging the photo of himself and the vacuum.
At least one other man was inspired to try the same ploy because his wife “does not browse Reddit.”
And, in case you were wondering, his efforts at lighting his wife’s fire were apparently unsuccessful. When another user asked if the photos did, indeed, turn her on, the man replied, “The only thing I accomplished was making her and all her co-workers she showed the text to laugh at how dumb I am … and getting a clean house.”
This guy’s photos were almost as good as the husband who posed for “dudeoir” photos on a farm, including posing on horseback while in his underwear.
Good effort, guys!
