With the whole “Netflix and chill” moniker going around, people seem to think the popular video streaming platform is encouraging sex. However, a new study coming from Lancaster University in the United Kingdom suggests otherwise. Is watching television really killing sex? Let’s find out.
KILLING SEX: COUPLES CHOOSE NETFLIX OVER LOVE
In this study, researchers monitor electricity usage to see when people are using the internet the most. 10 p.m. – 11 p.m. is the most popular time. In the past, this was prime sexy time but now, it’s strictly for Netflix. Hence, the research suggests that our usual routine from recent decades is shifting and we have the internet to thank for it. But why exactly is this killing sex? If anything, shouldn’t it encourage it?
NETFLIX KILLING SEX BECAUSE IT’S MORE INTERESTING
Watching TV should inspire sex. Imagine curling up in bed with your S.O., pulling the blanket over each other and starting some foreplay while Jimmy Fallon talks in the background. It’s not a hard scenario to imagine however why is this not happening with Netflix? Well, the truth is, Netflix is just too darn good. Watching TV in bed should be a gateway to sex but the content these days is so entertaining, that it’s killing sex entirely.y No one wants to miss a second of these programs, nevermind 30 minutes. By the time the show ends, everyone is just too tired for making love. What does this mean for the future?
NETFLIX KILLING SEX MEANS A DARK FUTURE
Let’s use our imaginations now. The year is 2030 and people stopped having sex. Instead, they drive around in A.I cars, exchange their crypto with Kelvin and buy sex robots with digital currency. No one will have real sex anymore. They will live in a world cut off from the outside world. They will live only on their devices and never interact with anyone again. Kind of a scary world but very possible.
