    Depends. I think we mostly keep them on. but it’s not really anything I think about. I also don’t go all.. oh shoot we’re about to have sex, lemme turn on/off the lights. We just leave them where they’re at.

    ETA: I can’t even remember the last time we did it in the dark. So I guess I should have voted lights on.

    Depends. It’s not like if the lights on we make it appoint to turn them off or vice versa. If we start something in the dark then we do it in the dark, if we start in the light then we do it in the light.

    light off only if we’re really tired and just want to keep our eyes closed. this is rare.

    Lights on, usually. I like to see what I’m doing and so does he. I think it’s more fun that way.

    Always with the lights on. We like to be able to see each other.

    I prefer lights off because I’m very self conscious about my body, but he prefers lights on so I guess it’s 50/50.

    I turn on the small lamp on our bedside table. It creates a dim light which is a nice mood setter 🙂

    Lights on. The only time we have lights off is if we’re having morning sex and just haven’t turned the lights on yet. We also usually do covers off as well. Sometimes I’ll be cold and we’ll have the blankets over us, but then it gets too hot and I kick them off lol.

    We prefer dimmed. Lights off is too dark to see anything. Lights on all the way shows too many uncomfortable details.

    We don’t care much. If it’s already dark in the room, we’ll go for it. If the light is on, we’ll go for it. Rarely do we change it.

    I don’t care. 

    If the lights are on we don’t turn them off and if they are off we don’t make a point of turning them on. 

    But we both don’t like pitch darkness I like to see to some extent what is happening.

    Dimmed here as well.  My DH needs a lot of visual stimulation so there’s got to be some sort of light on, but I can’t do full on lit room.  I just stare at my giggling fat the whole time!

    I don’t care. Sometimes on, sometimes off. It’s never really a conscious decision though.
