Americans are giving up sex for “web life”, eh? So says Reuters.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Surfing the net has become an obsession for many Americans with the majority of U.S. adults feeling they cannot go for a week without going online and one in three giving up friends and sex for the Web.
A survey asked 1,011 American adults how long they would feel OK without going on the Web, to which 15 percent said a just a day or less, 21 percent said a couple of days and another 19 percent said a few days.
Only a fifth of those who took part in an online survey conducted by advertising agency JWT between Sept 7 and 11 said they could go for a week.
The headline is linkbait of course, I mean, I don’t really believe that any right-minded person would really take “web life” over good sex if it really came down to it.
However, the study is revealing to say the least, and further proof that we are connected to the Internets more than we think we are. Me, personally? I work in this field, so not being connected means I have to get a new career.
But if I didn’t “have” to be online, I could probably lose it completely.
