The average couple owns a mattress for 10 years. And a new study tried to figure out exactly what happens on that bed over the course of the decade. Here's what the average bed experiences . . .
-48 days of watching TV.
-480 sex sessions. (--That's 48 per year, or four per month.)
-39 hours on the phone.
-70 days on laptops and phones.
-240 books read.
-And finally, only two years and eight months of sleep. (--That's an average of around six-and-a-half hours of sleep per day. Some days you'll get more . . . sometimes you'll be on vacation or sleep on the couch and get zero on the bed.)
