Check Out Ways Technology Is Ruining Your Séx Life

By on April 27, 2015

Dr. Meagan Tyler, author of “Selling s*x Short”, points out, “Technology is affecting all kinds of social interactions. You interrupt face-to-face conversations to answer your mobile or reply to a text. Why would s*x be any different?”download15

Technology is obviously here to stay, so what can you do to fix this problem? Here are a few suggestions:

1. Make your bed a wireless zone

When you head into your bedroom, turn off your lap tops, iPads, cell phones, etc. Many marriage and family therapists recommend reserving your bed for intimacy, connection and sleep. Unplug your television and move it to another room. It’s a sad day when surveys show that people would rather give up s*x in exchange for a new plasma TV.

2. Get a grip on your daily usage

If you deal with cell phone anxiety, you have a problem. Brian Alexander, author of “America Unzipped: In Search of s*x and Satisfaction” explains, “It’s tough to look forward to, or enjoy, s*x if you are anxious.” If you’re too attached to your cell phone that you can’t even go an hour without checking it, then you need to figure out a way to get rid of that anxiety.

3. Leave work at work

Set a goal to stop checking and answering emails after 7 p.m. It’ll do wonders for your relationship and work-life balance. In fact, according to the Harvard Business Review, your late-night emails are probably hurting your team’s engagement and performance, so cutting down will help your overall productivity.

4. Get help for your p****graphy problem

If one or both of you have a p****graphy problem, you need to get help. According to Fight the New Drug, studies have shown that “P0*n often leads to less s*x and less satisfying s*x. And for many users, P0*n eventually means no s*x at all.” No matter how hard to you try to justify it, p****graphy is a destructive habit that will hurt your relationship.

5. Put it on the schedule

If you aren’t making s*x a priority, then schedule it in. Set up a specific date and time with your spouse, and then protect it. Put the kids to bed early. Book a hotel room, if you need it. Go out on a date and have a real conversation — uninterrupted by any potential distractions. Make it a priority to make genuine connections with your spouse.
