Sleep deprivation is certainly a common ailment for geeks, probably because many of us take advantage of the nighttime hours to catch up on our geeky doings, like… debugging a particularly nasty line of code, or raiding Icecrown Citadel in World of Warcraft, or (if you spent the last month like I did) catching up on a few years’ back episodes of Lost. In the long term, this could actually lead to an unsatisfying sex life for yourself and your partner.
Not that this is news, really, but the New York Times has assured us: you are not alone! According to a new study by the National Sleep Foundation, 1 in 4 Americans who are married or living with someone aren’t getting enough sleep and are often just too tired for sex.
Of course, we also know from other research that geeks are great in bed, so maybe that makes up for the sleep deprivation. So what about you guys? Do you think you have a healthy sex-to-sleep-to-[insert geek activity here] ratio? Are you often finding yourself too tired for having sex?
