So apparently Americans are too sleepy for sex.
A recent poll showed that something around 30% of people who have sleep
issues (roughly 75% of Americans) would rather sleep than fuck. Or
rather, they are so damn tired that they aren't interested in sex most of
"More than a third of people who described themselves as poor sleepers
said their intimate relationships were affected because they are too
sleepy, compared to 8 percent of good sleepers"
I mean, despite varying opinions, I do not believe that sex is the
center of the universe. I do not believe it should always be the first
thing that defines a realtionship or the point of intimacy. But I do think
it's a necessary bonding activity, an important stress reliever and
just pretty darn fun. And it inspires and is often analagous with our
zest for life.
And more, I wonder: If a whole lotta people are are so overworked and
tired and dysfunctional in their sleep patterns that they can't even
feel the urge to do something that feels good, how do they find the energy
to do the boring or uncomfortable things they need to do?
In the end, though, it strikes me as just another sign that we are
perpetuating an unpleasant and unhealthy lifestyle around these parts. We
can't sleep well, we obviously don't eat well (or eat too well) and now
we don't have sex.
