CAMBRIDGE, ENGLAND – Netflix and chill?  A study says Netflix may actually be killing your sex life.  Cambridge University statistician David Spiegelhalter believes people are having less sex because they’re staying up late to binge watch TV.

According to previous studies, lack of sleep adversely affects our sex drive, and the numbers seem to back it up.  In 1990, couples between the ages of 16 and 64 had sex an average of five times a month.  The numbers continued to gradually drop.  In the year 2000, it was four times, then down to three times a month in 2010.

With numbers shrinking this rate, Spiegelhalter says by the year 2030 couples are not going to be having sex at all.
