Candy Crushing Libido in the Bedroom
Dec 5 , 2013
According to studies in both the US and most recently the UK, most couples have unwittingly allowed a third party into the bedroom. This third party is the only one in the room who will receive all of the attention, save the usual “would ya get the light?” request hurled to whomever is sleeping closest to the bedroom door. All eyes, all hands are all over her every part. In some homes this third party is known as the iPad, e-reader or TV…In mine, her moniker is Candy Crush. Yes, undoubtedly, technology is deleting intimacy in the bedroom.
During our Morning Show on VOCM, I asked Sexual Health Educator and host of the Friday Night Sex Show, Dr. Sarah MacAulay to weigh in:
So is the answer to simply turn off in order to turn on? Dr. Sarah has some suggestions:
Tonight at bedtime, look around your room…chances are the cause of your lack of libido is either mounted on the wall, booted up on your dresser or attached to your ear….Now that you know…are you willing to evict your technological tenant? Me? Not anytime soon. She’s family now. But with a tentative smirk and a sly eye, I could learn to look at the thirty minutes -until -my- next- life aspect as a help instead of a hindrance.
