Is it Better Than Sex?

"It" being the internet. What's more enticing, having sex with your significant other or surfing the Internet? You'd be surprise that the majority chose the internet in a recent poll.

According to the survey of 2,119 adult Internet users, commissioned for Intel by Harris Interactive, 95 percent of all respondents said it was at least "somewhat" important to have devices that allow them to get online. 65 percent said that they simply could not live without Internet access, period. Clearly, this is a crowd that loves their Internet.

So it shouldn't surprise you (based off of that percentage) that almost half (46 percent) of all women said that they would choose the Internet over sex for two weeks. Men have trouble resisting the tantalizing online world themselves, but in lower numbers. 39 percent of men between the ages of 18 and 34 said they would sacrifice sex for the Internet for two weeks, while a mere 23 percent of those between 35 and 44 said no.

Fascinating... The survey doesn't stop there either. Cable TV subscriptions, dining out, shopping for clothes, and gym memberships all lose out to the Internet when push comes to shove. Take a look at some of the commenters. Very interesting.
