TMHS 187: How Your Sleep Life Impacts Your Sex Life

Let’s talk about sex. There are really few things that influence our lives more than our sex lives. Sex is taboo in our society, but nearly everyone is doing it (or hoping to do it – shoutout to movie The 40-Year Old Virgin!).

Now, what if you found out that the quality of your sleep is influencing your sexual health more than any other factor? Plus, what if you found out the quality of your sleep even impacts your sexual attractiveness in the first place? Would sleep suddenly become more of an interesting topic?

You’re going to learn how to boost your vital sex hormones, how to immediately improve your sleep quality, and even amazing data showing how better sex can lead to better sleep.

  1. Hey Shawn,

    im trying to figure out is there anything you can recommend as I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and am in the process of getting a c-pap machine to help get my sleep on track. I know the first answer to resolving sleep apnea is usually to loose weight but I am a 6’2″ tall 185 lb triathlete and am very active and eat well. Is there anything you would recommend as my sleep doctor says I will need the c-pap for the rest of my life and I am not very happy with that though. thank you for any help you can provide
