Cornish App Helps You Get More Passion
7:01am 14th February 2013
Want more passion with your partner? There's an app for that.
Cornish researchers have found the more sleep couples have the more likely they are to share some passion and the better it will be.
The Institute for Sleep and Sexual Studies gave thirty couples a programme for their smartphones which played soothing sounds as they went to bed.
Another thirty did not have a sleep aid.
The first group ended up getting an extra twenty-seven minutes sleep, and had sex every 2.8 days, compared to every 4.3 days for the control group.
Doctor Murray Williams from the ISSS said: "We now have some clinical proof of what we suspected, that the better you sleep the more likely you are to have sex and enjoy sex. We need to do further work on why the Soothing Sound App produced this result but the results are conclusive."
Colin Kemp works for the Cornish company behind the App, based at Tremough. He said: "There's beach sounds, running water, streams, bird singing and Indian flutes. As you settle down to go to sleep the sounds start playing and then, hopefully, you've gone to sleep before they stop.
"I think this will be very popular because sleep is becoming one of the modern issues. People are getting increasingly concerned they are not sleeping well enough and that the lack of sleep affects many aspects of their life - their relationships and their work."7:01am 14th February 2013
