The Internet or sex?

Posted By on Mon, Dec 15, 2008 at 7:00 AM

Nearly 50 percent of women would rather log on than get off.

Cnet.com, reports that 46 percent of women would rather give up sex for two weeks than to go without the internet.

Who are these women? And are they watching porn online?

While 46 percent of the women surveyed were willing to engage in abstinence verses losing their Internet, only 30 percent of the men surveyed were willing to do likewise.

The U.S. survey, which queried 2,119 adults last month, found that the gap grew even wider for both men and woman who were 18 to 34 years old. For woman, the percentage of those willing to skip the sheets in favor of the Web rose to 49 percent, while it climbed to 39 percent for men.

And for women 35 to 44 years old, the figure jumped to 52 percent.

I'm all for using the internet, but the internet can't hold you and kiss you and thrust in to you. Sure you can find sales and deals online, but can you find an orgasm on Amazon.com? I don't think so.

Though not as sexy but equally interesting, the survey also found that 87 percent of respondents said the Internet saves them money.

Specifically, 84 percent of those surveyed found the Internet saved them money by comparing prices online and searching out the best deals, while 65 percent said it aided them in finding coupons, discounts, and special promotions.

And TV, which has been losing its share of eyeball time to the Internet over the years, found that the majority of adults would be willing to go two weeks of watching TV, verses losing one week on the Internet.

Men, may not give up sex for the Internet, but they will give it for something.

A big T.V.

Of course when it comes to TV, perhaps size matters, at least according to a different survey earlier this year of Britons conducted by electronics retailer Comet. Almost half of the men polled said they would give up sex for six months in return for a 50-inch plasma TV, according to Reuters. That compared with just over a third of women who were willing to make the same sacrifice for the big-screen television.

Venus and Mars, huh?
