TV in the bedroom = half as much sex

A study of 523 Italian couples has found that have a TV set in their bedroom have sex half as often as those who don't. To quote from the news article:

"On average, Italians who live without TV in the bedroom have sex twice a week, or eight times a month. This drops to an average of four times a month for those with a TV, the study found.

For the over-50s the effect is even more marked, with the average of seven couplings a month falling to just 1.5 times.

The study found certain programmes are far more likely to impede passion than others. Violent films will put a stop to sexual relations for half of all couples, while reality shows stem passion for a third of couples."

So today's recommendation for improving sexual frequency in your marriage? Get the dang TV outta the bedroom, pronto!
