In a recent survey by Westin hotels, a majority of respondents--51%--said they'd rather have a perfect night's sleep than great sex.

Counterintuitive finding: More men than women went for sleep over sex. 

Geographically peculiar finding: Of all those asked--some 12,500 recent travelers from a dozen countries--only Canadians went with sex more often than sleep.

Troubling trend: When the company asked the same question a decade ago, only 31% of respondents preferred the sleep option. 

Clearly the rigors of modern living are having a deleterious effect on our national libido.
