All work and no play makes someone a dull boy, but does a lack of sleep also lead to a dull sex life? A new study suggests that not getting enough zzz's can lead to low testosterone, low libido and ED.

A report appearing the Journal of Sexual Medicine indicates that if you want to hit the sheets with a sex partner, you'd better stock up on a decent amount of shut-eye beforehand.

While the study participants were already in their sixties, something which may disqualify them from consideration by many of today's youth, it's a myth that seniors do not enjoy vibrant sex lives. Despite being hampered, at times, by certain common afflictions which can take a bit out of libido such as sleep apnea, COPD, high blood pressure, diabetes and other conditions killing the mood sometimes, these study subjects proved once again that lack of sleep leads to low testosterone.
