Is Your Bedroom Equipped For Love Making?

I know many people who consider their bedrooms their sanctuaries. They spend a lot of money on a comfortable bed, soft sheets, and perfect lighting to make bedtime all the more enjoyable. But even if your bedroom is perfectly outfitted for a good night's sleep, let me ask you this: Is it suitable for a good night of sex? According to Tina B. Tessina, PhD and author of Money, Sex and Kids, for starters, we should all be taking it easy on the family photos:

Pictures of family and friends can spark subconscious thoughts of things troubling you or of obligation.

Additionally, she says TV is a big no-no in the bedroom. Researchers have found that those couples who do watch the tube in bed actually have less sex!

I'm pretty sure we all know how to set the mood when need be, but tell me, is your bedroom already well-equipped for sexy time at a moment's notice?

Nice sheets, comfy (and firm) bed, no pictures on the walls (although a few paintings/landscapes, find them relaxing) And NO TV. Although I do confess sometimes we bring the laptop on the bed to watch a tv show or a dvd together - but we could just as easily do it on the couch in that case, so it's not a constant distraction.

I live in a single/studio...So, my TV, computer, kitchen and "living area" is part of the "bedroom." Having a TV has never effected my sex life, though. My boyfriend is ready to go regardless of whether the TV is off, the TV is on, or I'm folding laundry while watching TV. Unfortunately, I have a twin-sized bed, soo...That's a big bummer!

My bedroom is not really sexy at all although we do have a very comfy mattress. But that doesn't seem to get in the way of our sex life ;)

My bedroom is pretty ugly, with mismatched furniture - even our bedside lamps don't match AT ALL - and an overall bleak and bare look, since we're prioritizing our spending/saving. HOWEVER, I did put my foot down on having NO tv or computer in the bedroom and I'm very happy with that! I hadn't thought about it, but we don't have pictures in there either...I think we're both a little creeped out by pictures "looking at us".

We do have a TV, but no pictures of our kids, or anyone else, in the bedroom.

Absolutely. Lots of candles, no clutter, no photos, and The Liberator under the bed, ready to go!

i don't have a TV, my room is tidy, my bed is very comfy, and it's painted a relaxing color. I do have a bunch of framed photos of friends, however, and one framed photo of my family, as well as one of me and my sister with our former (very loved) family dog. i guess those aren't ideal for the sex.

Our TV sometimes comes in handy.... other than that, I would have to say yes to our room being good for sex. no family photos and very comfortable bed and linens.
