From the Files of Captain Obvious: Sleep apnea ‘cure’ wreaks damage on sex lives

cpapOne look at the photograph to the right and you’ll likely draw the same conclusion of snore-sufferers and their significant others the world over: Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machines (CPAP’s), ain’t all that hot.

MSNBC broke this mind-blowing story with vignettes about couples who found their sex lives “derailed” once this cumbersome mask, tube, and whirring machinery made their way into the bedroom. Shocking.

But, consider this:

Bedtime troubles [such as snoring] send three in 10 couples to separate rooms, according to a poll by the National Sleep Foundation, a nonprofit agency. About a quarter of people with partners and 10 percent of singles said sleep problems left them too tired for sex.

How about ear plugs, or turning on some music to drown out the chainsaw noise that’s interfering with your human body pillow? Or hey—here’s another option: doing it before the mask goes on.
