We're all busy people. With jobs, kids, responsibilities, cleaning, and chores, there is little time to do everything we need to do, much less what we want to do. Often, it's impossible to even find time to watch TV.
This is one of the reasons why streaming services are so popular now. Everything is on-demand. We can choose to watch what we want to watch when we want to watch it. Even better, with no commercials, you can binge a whole series in one night.
But what about time for sex? According to The Wall Street Journal, many of us would rather use that precious hour or two to binge the newest buzzworthy show on Netflix than get intimate with our partners.
The Wall Street Journal's study answers the questions that we didn’t know we needed to ask, and boy... were we surprised.
35% of those asked would rather binge-watch TV than have sex with their partner
Forget #NetflixandChill. At a time of falling fertility rates, it’s more like #NetflixandZzzzz. https://t.co/EWrwgBReH3— The Wall Street Journal (@The Wall Street Journal)1555866905.0
Imagine being on episode five & then finding out your partner is already asleepSuddenly you're demanding, "Which episode did you stop watching with me? Do we have to go back and watch it all over again?!"
You wake up to the screen on this:And have no idea when you even fell asleep.
But we can't help it! Netflix just has so many good shows and movies these days...These are the ones we're most excited about:
The Zac Efron-led Ted Bundy biopic, coming in MayZac is great, but will this film kill the mood? Maybe.
Ali Wong just announced her rom-com with Randall Park, coming on May 31stWatch this, then stream the rest of her specials right after.

Speaking of girl power, how can we not mention that Beyonce’s Homecoming is on Netflix now?This alone can keep all of us entertained enough to ignore the other person on the couch and jealous all over again of all of those who went to the show.
Don’t have Netflix? We don't discriminate. Check out Brooklyn 99 on Hulu!We're obsessed with Amy and Jake and you will be too.
Or laugh it up with Superstore’s three seasons on HuluThe characters' one-liners in this show are literally perfect.
But great shows aside, the lack of intimacy issue might be bigger than all of these platforms combined:
