Detailed within a study conducted by Harris Interactive, approximately nine percent of American adults admitted to using a smartphone while engaging in sexual intercourse with their partner.

Of the more than 2,000 survey respondents, the largest percentage of adults that admitted this fact were split between Generation X and Millennial ages. Specifically, 20 percent of adults between the ages of 18 to 34 grabbed their smartphone during sex. Included within the 2013 Mobile Consumer Habits study, this survey was commissioned by Jumio; a company that offers payments and ID scanning solutions.

Nope -some are guys trying to figure out how to do it - they’re looking for the app that explains it to them.

Were they using the camera feature?

I had to go to a business lunch. I was waiting at the Maître D’ station with two other women. We all sat down, before their bottoms could hit the couch they were already on their smartphones texting. Since it was a business meeting I left my phone in the car.

Tom: “... so right in the middle, she picks up the phone, says 87, and hangs up.”

Dick: “87, huh? WTF?”

Tom: “I asked her but she wouldn’t tell.”

Harry: “Ceiling tiles. I heard my wife talking to her and they were laughing over ceiling tiles.”

I’ll bet 8 in 10 “tweet” during bowel movements. Some people just gotta let the world know what they are doing at all times. Bowel movements are important to friends these days.

My ex grandson-in-law did. (Boy, was his wife pissed!)

Apparently he dialed her by accident in the heat of infidelity.

Not very creative. There are plenty of other things to grab during sex.

At my home desk, yesterday, I saw this guy approach his car. Every time I glanced up, he was scanning his phone. He’d get ready to move out and be distracted again and just sit there fiddling with the damn thing. I wanted him to drive away, because I like the blinds open, and the sun kept glinting off the windshield. Perhaps 20 minutes later he finally pulled out, half-driving; half phone diddling. From what I’ve seen, men and women are equally addicted.

I was at a concert last night, directly in front of me was a girl who spent most of the two hour performance typing on her iPhone’s keypad.

ah we did this little so called survey and we saw when single men ae compared to single women driving and YES I was a truck driver so I hit the road all the time around and we found nearly half of women driving by themselves were on phones unlike men.

BTW My misses was with me so this is not from a guys view either

Assuming this poll was evenly split between males and females, this means that 40% of women admit they can’t even put down the phone during sex.

I’ll one up you. Two cell phones ringing, one answered and I listened to a lengthy conversation.

This was all during a wake at a funeral home where the priest was giving the funeral rights.

I was ready to get up, ask the priest to stop for one minute, turn and ask the idiot on the phone to leave, then ask the priest to resume. We are really becoming a disgrace as a society with our abject self-absorption.

I can’t believe we survived without these things in earlier times.

Whenever I am in a public men's room, during my many travels, I always make it a point to flush the toilet an extra time when someone is on the cellphone, while using the facilities.

Really? You can't wait two minutes?

I agree that lots of women talk on their phones while driving. From my observations, I also think that more women driving alone talk on cell phones.

However, I see many men texting when driving alone - many more than women. It’s harder to spot because the phone isn’t being held at the ear.

Both are dangerous but the texting is worse, from what I’ve seen.

Hmmm. Business opportunity. Maybe they’d be willing to overpay for that info then. I thought maybe the couple was texting each other, instead of talk, “oh, I love it when you touch me their.”

An old friend’s hubby butt dialed me when he was picking up a woman when he was out of town. I heard him say, “Do you want to go home with me?” Then I heard her heels clicking in the parking lot and him opening her door. I heard muffled giggling and talking when they were driving, presumably to his hotel room. A few weeks later, when I was visiting, I confronted him about it and he looked me right in the eye and denied it.

He knows I have his number and walks a wide path around me.

I doubt he felt any guilt. (I never liked the guy and have reason to believe he stole some things from me).

If a woman is dating a person that needs a sex app for help, then she is dating a boy - not a man.

Real men know how to do it right.

I’m old. What is “butt dialing”?

I even remember when cordless phones were a novelty & people thought they could call from the bathroom while on the throne and not be found out as to where they were.

It’s called “acoustics”.
