Go Get Your Sexy Back Already!Sep 20th, 2007 | By James Lewin | Category: General
A new survey has found that the Internet 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.
The¬†online survey, conducted by advertising agency JWT, 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.
“It is taking away from offline activities, among them having sex, socializing face-to-face, watching TV and reading newspapers and magazines. It cuts into that share,” said JWT’s Ann Mack. “I don’t suppose their partners are too pleased about it.”
- 28 percent admitted spending less time socializing face-to-face with peers because of the amount of time they spend online.
- 20 percent said they spend less time having sex because they are online.
- The Internet won out over cell phones and television in a question asking which device people couldn’t go without.
