Bummer: Binge Watching Is Bad For Your Boner

Seriously folks, you can't make stuff like this up. Researchers claim that we are having less sex because we are binge watching Netflix. Oh yeah, before I forget, binge watching TV also leads to depressions and chronic disease. So much for your plans to binge watch Family Guy. frown

In the 1990s, says David Spiegelhalter, a professor and statistician at Cambridge University, couples had sex about five times per month. Today it's down to three آ— and Spiegelhalter says binge watching is partially to blame. (In fairness, he also points to people's obsessions with their phones and other digital distractions.) A seeming combination of obsessive watching of shows and the ensuing lack of sleep results in a lowered libido.
