True or false question – snoring couples have less sex?


A study conducted by the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association confirmed that snoring has an adverse effect on a couple’s sexual relationship. The results of the study found that 60% of respondents said they would make love more often if they or their partner stopped snoring.

Other findings support that the impact of snoring is not just related to physical wellbeing, and in their press release to support the 2005 National Stop Snoring Week, they cite the following facts about snoring:

85% of snorers in the UK snore every night.

81% of the partners of snorers do not get enough sleep because of snoring.

Half of all partners of snorers feel tired in the morning.

One third of partners of snorers feel irritable.

89% of partners of snorers sleep in separate rooms because of snoring.

More than half of all couples argue about snoring.

85% of couples say their relationship would be better if snoring stopped.

More than half of all couples say snoring affects their sexual relationship.

One third of couples admitted that they hardly ever make love because of snoring.

Two thirds of couples say they would make love more often is snoring stopped.

86% of snorers said they would like help is trying to stop snoring


What is interesting is that these findings can be transferred to the other millions of snorers around the world who are being affected in this same way. But the disturbing part is that most couples are unaware that snoring is having that detrimental impact on their relationship, or they may realize too late as they contribute to the rising divorce rate.


We all need to take some action now and the first step is acknowledging that ‘Snoring is the silent relationship killer’ in your partnership.
