Thinking of buying a TV for the bedroom? Think again -- it could ruin your sex life.

TV in the bedroom halves your sex life study

A study by an Italian sexologist has found that couples who have a TV set in their bedroom have sex half as often as those who don't.

"If there's no television in the bedroom, the frequency (of sexual intercourse) doubles," said Serenella Salomoni whose team of psychologists questioned 523 Italian couples to see what effect television had on their sex lives.

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.

Honestly, it hasnt hurt mine because where would I watch the pornos ????

I have to agree that a TV in the bedroom can decrease sexual activity, but if you use it wisely it can bolster it too. I've found that keeping a porno ready in the VCR helps if the moment arises, and I do find the show to be distracting. During comercials we may continue but the on again off again between the comercials can be maddening. That's where the porno comes in handy.
Though my wife has not been the biggest fan of adult films I find turning it on instead of normal programming, turning down the sound, and playing our own music helps a great deal. Just turning it off and putting the music on works well too.
Of course you can always move away from the offending appliance. Dining room table anyone?

I love my tv it helps me sleep when I finally go to bed. I have a few porno movies but hardly ever watch them. We have the digital music channels through cable and that could be a great way to add some uninterrupted music for the sex sessions. so tv aint so bad, it beats having to get up to put on different music while in the throws of passion.

saint you are right there with my husband on Leno and Conan, he will fight over the remote.

I am the real deal! "Come Get Me!!!"

I kind of disagree about the TV. If any thing can kill you sex live in the bedroom is reading in bed. Dam -- should of married an Italian woman.

I say they put a few public service announcements on during the comericial breaks. Ones that encourage adults to have sex, put some sexy people in them. Illustrate lovemaking techniques, massage how-to's. Everyone would be getting busy halfway through Leno then.

I think having a tv in the bedroom is ok... but only for those times when I'm alone. Otherwise, I would be distracted and that would kill it for me. Unless there happens to be porn in the DVD....but only for a little while.. once action starts happening in the here and now..real life... off the tv goes.

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~

.......First, I apologize to the owner of this blog in advance. But, I have to respond to this jackass
in other blogs because he has taken great measures to prevent me from responding to his insults and challenges, that he still throws at me constantly. And he and his friend Soy Kofla Soykofla2 have my profile and blogs deleted everyday. Until I have other alternatives, this is what I must do to respond to their villainy!

First, to Soy.Soykofla2 What do you think you're accomplishing by having me deleted every day? If you'll notice, you're still dealing with me. You and your friends are forced to close your blogs and try futility to suppress me and my words. Do you think I'll just get tired and go away? When you know full well the way I respond to a challenge?! I've read your response to other peoples post on the corn pones blog. You come off as arrogant and self important. Having a hot line to the abuse team must really inflate your ego, huh? Well, go ahead and have your fun. As monkey brain will tell you, I usually give my victims a few shots just to make them feel their not total bums. LOL! You think you're doing good because your successfully kicking a little sand in my face? You think I'll find another sandbox to play in? I'm more likely to just bulldoze the entire playground! Think about it?! Now, I know you said " you're not afraid of me ", and I believe you. Unlike your shit for brains friend here, I do realize when someone is being sincere. Just because your not afraid, doesn't mean you still should be concerned?! I've been doing some preliminary inquires about you. You're very vulnerable to my type of response. You should do some serious thinking about what you're getting yourself into here? You know what I'm capable of.

Now, to respond to the idiot.
Oh, you are such a joke! You come on, in here, threatening and harassing me with your stupid stories and silly pictures and telling me I'm no concern to you or anybody. Then you run around battening down all your hatches living in mortal terror that my words and ideas will seep in and infect you somehow. You are the biggest hypocrite and pussy I've ever met in my life! You say I'm all talk and no action? You're all hit and run, and then hide from your own shadow. I think you have something wrong with you psychologically?

Well, I know you and your asshole buddy Soy will read this. You seem to share everything these days. As you now see, not only am I not going away. My presence and influence is growing and metastasizing into other areas. You will look back at this time when I only used to post some annoying post on this blog with great fondness someday? See ya round like a donut!
