'Game Of Thrones' Is Actually Ruining Your Sex Life, According To Science

Good news for nerds: You guys may be having less sex, but at least you're getting to see plenty of nudity while you binge watch "Game of Thrones."

According to a statistician and professor at Cambridge University, couples in Britain are having way less sex than they used to — about a 40 percent decrease in less than 20 years time.

Yep, as only '90s kids will remember, couples used to have sex about five times a month, and now in 2016, that number is reportedly down to three times a month.

So what does this have to do with Westeros?

Professor David Spiegelhalter said technological advances like iPads are to blame, seeing as now couples are bringing Netflix and HBO GO to bed with them. He said,

At this rate by 2030 couples are not going to be having any sex at all. Which is a very worrying trend. You say, 'Why?' Statisticians say, 'I don't know.' One of the researchers mentioned the word iPad. I think it's the box set, Netflix. OMG I've got to watch the entire second series of 'Game of Thrones.'

Hm, OK, sounds like somebody's wife is paying a little too much attention to Jon Snow and not enough attention to a certain professor, if you know what I mean.

Personally, I think "Game of Thrones" is HELPING me have sex.

I mean, who doesn't want to go home with the woman at the party who knows how to speak Dothraki?
