Sex or Cellphone? Survey says 29% prefers the phone

Samsung has released the results of a consumer study that indicated nearly a third of Denver–area residents would sooner give up sex for a year that go without a cell phone for the same amount of time.

From the Samsung press release:

"The September 2009 research study found 29 percent of men and women in Denver would rather forgo sex for an entire year rather than give up their cell phones for the same amount of time. When it came to the battles of sexes, Denver women (33 percent) were more willing than men (20 percent) to lose their libidos versus missing their mobile phones."

We leave it up to you, good readers, to contemplate the long term evolutionary consequences of these results.

makes sense since its comparing mostly varying moments of pleasure to and necessary communication tool used 24/7.
i think it would rise as mobile phones continue to become more advanced adn PCs would havce to be up pretty high as well.

If I was single and being asked that I might agree but if I had a partner then no f***ing way!

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
