    TV in Bedroom

    years ago, I read that couples who have a TV in their room sacrifice their love life and intimacy to watch TV.

    Tonight my DH and I have on the TV and we're each pounding on our separate laptops.

    Guess we won't have to pull the shades tonight!

    LOL I heard that years ago - wonder what the "experts" have to say about all the new gadgets that have come out since that report

    I can't sleep without a TV for background noise - maybe that explains why I am single LOL

    Hate having any electronic/tv/etc. equipment in our bedroom....don't even have a digital clock. Have enough electronics during the day....don't need them while we are chillaxing in the boudoir.

    No tv in our room.. There's seven other rooms he can go into if he wants to watch tv...

    Same goes with laptops --- no place for them in our bedroom

    One exception iPhones - we use them instead of alarm clocks.


    We live out in the country , no shades needed for any room !!!

    The TV in our bedroom is on almost 24 hours a day. Of course, there's usually only one human in there at a time. I'm a full time student so I'm always up late and hes a 3rd shifter and needs the background noise to sleep during the day.

    Before I retired I worked the midnight shift. Needed the TV to drown out noise from outside so I could sleep during the daytime. So yes, the TV has been in our bedroom forever. Now I turn it on and put it on sleep timer so it goes off shortly after I fall asleep.

    and for me! i set the timer to turn the tv off after getting to sleep. strangely, this is a new habit in the last few years. as the kids were growing, i couldn't even stand to hear the tv in the other room when trying to go to sleep. so the kids all had to retreat to their rooms to read, or whatever.

    Have not had a tv in bedroom, and don't plan on it. My parents had one in their bedroom, and I decided no way!

    We only have one TV, in the LR. Now will someone tell me why, when I am watching TV and fall asleep, when I get up and go to bed, I can't sleep?

    We have had one for several years, my husband goes to bed before and it is off then. I wear foam earplugs and they block all noise, even my cat that is trying to learn how to talk.

    Same here!!!! Nothing like snuggling up on the bed to watch a movie --- quite frankly -- MORE will happen doing that than us sitting on the couch and chairs in the living room!!!

    We had a T-V in the bed room for about 20 yrs. Can`t say we ever used it. Gave it away when it was called an old T-V!

    When I was growing up, my folks wouldn't let me have a TV in my bedroo & I swore when I was "grown up" I would have one. The instant I moved out? TV in bedroom & have had one ever since (usually the biggest, nicest one in the house). I heard someplace that Oprah has some vendetta against TV's in the bedroom. Whatever...

    I couldn't sew if I didn't have one in my sewing room. I like to watch either hockey games or quilting videos when I sew.

    Never a TV in our bedroom, DH did shift work for 25 years, used a box fan for noise blocker and still use one.
    Must work, been married over 50 years.

    Love it. I have my cpap in my room and that is it. If it were not for my sleep apnea, I wouldn't have it. I love the chillaxing! great word.
