Sex Lives Suffer for Sleep Deprived

A new study by the National Sleep Foundation found that among married people or couples living together, 1 in 4 adults skip or avoid sex because they're too tired. In the study, roughly 33 percent say they're not getting enough sleep to function at their best--in general, not just the sex department. The culprit for this sleep depravity? Pick one: work schedule, kids, sleep apnea, pets, etc. Furthermore, between 30 to 40 percent of adults say they have some symptoms of insomnia within a given year, according to the National Center for Sleep Disorders Research at the National Institutes of Health. So how much sleep do you need? Unfortunately, there's not a simple answer. In general, however, most people require somewhere between seven and nine hours per day.

What's the most common reason you and your spouse don't have sex? Is it sleep deprivation?
