The Naked Chef says ban sex until men get cooking


oliver.jpgoliver.jpgCelebrity chef Jamie Oliver has a bit of advice for women whose partners refuse to do any cooking — abstain from sex until he gets into the kitchen.

“Men are driven by sex,” Oliver was reported as saying at the annual Hay-on-Wye book festival in Wales. ”So the best way for women to get their men into the kitchen would be to stop having sex with them until they start to cook,” he told the Sunday Times of London.

Oliver, who is best known for television programmes such as “The Naked Chef” and “Jamie’s School Dinners,” said he was appalled at how few British men have even lifted a pan, let alone cooked. But he said once men got over the first hurdle, there was “a pride on their faces” when they learnt to cook a few dishes.
