Social media makes you antisocial
If you're on Facebook checking out photos of the mean girl from your high school, or reading through a celebrity's Twitter feed, it's easy to forget about the person lying next to you. "It feels like you aren't prioritizing your relationship," says Dr. Logan Levkoff, a sexologist and host of Café Mom's Mom Ed: In the Bedroom. He may feel like you're too preoccupied to be receptive to his advances — so save that Pinterest recipe browsing for the morning.

I am sort of stuck with the TV and DVR in the bedroom, as my husband is disabled, and can only be up and in his chair 12 hours per day. That means, we watch, and comment, on a lot of TV. Sometimes, in bed, but that's OK. What keeps me up late, and not coming to bed is that I watch TV in the next room, while I do my night time rituals (face cleansing and masks, or whatever, and drinking herbal tea to make me feel sleepy) and find myself engrossed in an old movie, or old episode of Law & Order that I didn't get to see, the first time around. Suddenly, its three a.m., and I need to get to bed, and hurry up to get to sleep, so I can get up before noon the next day. this leaves me sleep deprived, and sex deprived. (Yes, even though my husband is disabled, we have great sex, but I do have to be there, to engage!) And no, this is not an excuse, but I do think I am naturally set to be a night person, as I have always done well with late night jobs, and get my best studying in late at night.

What is a DVR? I've never heard of it. Anyhow, I don;t have a TV in my bedroom anyhow.
