New research reveals The ONE thing American women want from their man study shows differences based on location in U.S. and age groups

DETROIT, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- According to a Google Consumer Survey of married women in the United States - the number one "Man Medal" worthy thing that they would like their man to do is:

run the vacuum (27%) beating out "emptying the dishwasher" and "asking for directions".

However, the survey also revealed different responses based on location and age group:

- the number one answer for women in the West and Northeast was "asking for directions"

- top response in the South and Midwest? "running the vacuum cleaner" (over 30% in the Midwest)

- younger married women (18-24) want their man to empty the dishwasher

- married women over the age of 45 felt "asking for directions" was #1

- and "putting the toilet seat down " was more of an issue in the south than any other region in the country.

-This survey was commissioned by Man Medals (


Man Medals include:

- I put the toilet paper roll on 

- I took out the garbage 

- I picked up my dirty clothes 

- I asked for directions 

- I ran the vacuum cleaner

- I put the toilet seat down 

- Best hubby ever

- I emptied the dishwasher 

The idea was the brain child (all tongue in cheek) of Jim O'Brien:

This all started as a running joke with my lovely wife Kathi. Whenever I took the trash out or picked up my socks, I'd announce what I'd done.Her Reply? "What, do you want a medal?" Over the years we'd both get a smile out of it - and one day I thought "why not?" And Man Medals were born!
