Should You Videotape Yourself Having Sex?
By Blane Bachelor
Of course, on-the-mark advice doesn't always save couples. Sean and Safia sparked in their sex life but noticed they spent most of their free time watching television. After they turned it off, they discovered they had nearly nothing in common and broke up.
If the thought of a camera watching you in bed makes you cringe, I challenge you to ask yourself why. If it's because you view sex as a private act, that's one thing. But if it's because you're uncomfortable with what the footage might reveal — your selfishness? his passivity? hours of the two of you sleeping? — then perhaps you need to take a harder look at your relationship. With or without a camera.
