Something I found on a local news website before:

TV In The Bedroom Harms Your Sex Life

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

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.

Now see I don't agree with this as it has helped ours.


druing a really bad time, we used HBO's 'real sex' to make things wonderful! We have had a tv in our bed room for almost 25yrs....it doesn't stop us or hurt our sex life! We use to watch 'real sex' every thrus night and we both knew there would be fun times every thrusday! LOL! PLUS it was 'real sex' that showed me what I was missing in doing oral on DH....I learned by watching that show and started doing it after almost 10yrs of being married...now I love doing it!


I think its a 'couple' thing...anything can help or hurt your sex life. for some kids hurt it for some kids make them closer...same as a tv in the bedroom.


We go to bed early and lay in each others arms and watch tv, it helps to keep us just us not watching tv with the kids...Plus is nice to have a tv that is "ours" and we can watch what we want when we want and it doesn't matter who is in the room.

All sex should be called LovePlay, From the first kiss until the final embrace during after glow. It all part of one big sexual banquet, when you enjoy the banquet the appetizer is just as important and enjoyable as the main course. Michael Castleman.
