Sadly, at this point this article doesn't even surprise me. Apparently, 15% of people said they would give up sex for a weekend rather than go without their iPhone. Not total abstinence or even a month, 48 hours. That to me is pretty amazing however I'm actually beginning to think that number would be even higher depending on the demographics you select for the study.
- Asked which device or platform they would not be able to live without, a majority (65%) chose iPhone, while only a few (1%) report not being able to do without Facebook.
- More than 25% of survey respondents report that they "almost always" use their iPhone while in a social setting such as during a meal or while at a party.
- Nearly 4% of respondents report having used their iPhone while having sex. (Emphasis ours.)
The second one is something that astounds me whenever I'm out for dinner. I can't help but laugh hysterically when I see someone on a date and both are buried in their phones barely even talking to one another or even when kids are sitting at the table paying no attention to what's going on. It's also somewhat hilarious when people are on their phone and run into things while walking around. But really. What the hell does this mean for our society? Do you guys fall into any of these things, willing to give up sex for your smartphone?
