Nearly half of women would dump sex to surf the net!

December 16, 2008
Many women would rather go without sex than give up Internet access, according to a new survey.

To reach the conclusion, the Internet Reliance in Today's Economy survey of 2119 people aged 18-plus in the US, said that 65 percent of adults admitted they can't live without the Internet.

The survey, which was conducted by Harris Interactive, on behalf of Intel, found that nearly half of women (46 percent) and 30 percent of men would rather surf the net than have sex, reports the Independent.

For women aged 18-34 it was 49 percent and for women aged 35-44 it was 52 percent.

Only 39 percent of men aged 18-34 would swap the bedroom for the broadband.

In the survey, television also copped a beating, with over half the respondents preferring to give up two weeks of telly than a single week of web access.

Internet availability of many movies and TV shows likely skewed the result, which showed 61 percent of adult women would happily switch off the box.
