A Love/Hate Relationship with the TV

Like most couples, my wife and I have a TV in the bedroom. Some days there is nothing better than to lay down in bed, flip on the tube and watch a good reality show. Watching our programs is important to us -- it is our guilty pleasure.

But spending the evening hours watching shows like Grey's Anatomy, Law and Order and (gulp) the Real World can take all of the life out of you. It's fun while you are watching it, but by the end of the night your mind and body are tired. Any thoughts of a passionate night go out the window about the same time the ten o'clock news promo's begin.

What is the solution to this dilemma. Take the television out of the bedroom? Are you really going to make love every night after disconnecting the cable?
