Medicine: television in the bedroom kills your sex life, chances of eternal happiness

Italian sexologist. That has to be the ultimate resume booster.

"If there's no television in the bedroom, the frequency (of sexual intercourse) doubles," said Serenella Salomoni whose team of psychologists questioned 523 Italian couples to see what effect television had on their sex lives.

On average, Italians who live without TV in the bedroom have sex twice a week, or eight times a month. This drops to an average of four times a month for those with a TV, the study found.

For the over-50s the effect is even more marked, with the average of seven couplings a month falling to just 1.5 times.

No word on whether it might be effective to get a TV in your bedroom to increase your chances of having sex four times a month. The study also fails to report if late night TV in Italy has ugly dudes like Leno and Letterman on TV. I figured all Italian TV was like porno anyway, but maybe Jeopardy doesn't do it for Italians either.

And in other news, people over 50 can have sex seven times a month?

Garrett Sparks. This is your old pal, Josh Iddings. Just happened to stumble upon the Michigan website while looking for a Ph.D. program to join (though I'm not having much luck in my field). I took a chance that you would be in the directory and found you. I called the cell phone number given in the directory but haven't gotten an answer. I left you my number. If you don't actually use that cell phone or whatever, let me know. My home phone is 7406467358. Call me brother.
