Would You Give Up Sex for the Internet?

By Casey Lynn

According to a new survey, 46% of women would choose the Internet over sex for two weeks. For men, the number drops to 30%. So does this mean that women are more Internet-addicted or less sex-addicted?

And sex isn’t the only thing that people are willing to give up. Shopping, gym memberships, dining out, television… In fact, 58% of people would rather go without television for two weeks than without the Internet. Thank goodness for YouTube and Hulu, right?

If people watched more television before the Internet… does this mean that they were having more sex, too?

Question of the day: What would you give up for the Internet? Would you rather have sex or the Internet for two weeks? What if it were two months? A year? What about television? Your cell phone? How does the Internet rank in your life?

  3. Our television aerial is busted and so we are 3 weeks into an experiment of only using a 2MB internet connection, here in the UK. So far we have decided to put off even potentially sorting a replacement till after Christmas, maybe even longer.

  7. Meh… No girlfriend right now, so not a problem for me. But then again, even when I did have one I think I still spent this much time on the computer.
