Nearly Half of Women Surveyed Choose Internet Over Sex Kristy Erdodi - December 16, 2008 7:56 PM

Close to half of women surveyed said that they would choose to abandon sex for two weeks rather than give up their Internet access.

Almost half of women questioned by Harris Interactive said that they would choose to abandon sex for two weeks, over sacrificing their internet access, according to a study released Monday by Intel, which delegated the survey.

The survey results, comprised of 2,119 adult respondents surveyed last month in the U.S., make up part of Intel's broader commissioned study on Americans' reliance on the internet in today's economy.

Although nearly 46 percent of women respondents showed their willingness to give up sex life over Web access, only 30 percent of men surveyed would do the same.

The age bracket ranging from 18 to 34 years old displayed even more differences between women and men. Women in this group responded 49 percent favorably to choosing internet access over sex, and 39 percent of men respondents answered similarly.

There’s no point other than to get attention for the company that sponsored the survey. Nobody’s offered the either/or choice in real life.

Well, at least 65% of the women are obese or overweight and may not feel comfortable having sex. The poll didn’t consider this...

Wonder if all those USB dildos have anything to do with this.

Nearly 100% of men gravitate to over 50% of women.

Well, I know most browsers have that little 'refresh' button which some women apparently find most gratifying.

Personally, I've been waiting for Mozilla to sanction one or another version of the 'swallow bitch' add-ons...

Anyway, I envy the beta testers.

Maybe the big finding there is that a small fridge and snack cache could be built into computer desks?

That way the overweighted surfers could have their food, find their fetishes and chat. Food folks and fun! hehehe

No. I assume that most women feel uncomfortable with their bodies... and no surprise when you open up a magazine and see all these ultra thin models... But hey, if this is not a problem for you... God bless and have a merry Christmas.

They should ask them about the cell phones.

I really don't know what women must have done before cell phones.

Whenever I sit at a red light at a large intersection, I can see at least a dozen of them yapping or texting.

Oldie but goodie:

Why are single women skinny and married women fat?

Single women come home, look in the fridge, and go to bed.

Married women come home, look in the bed, and go to the fridge.

Good grief. What kind of person would take part in a survey like this. Imagine answering the phone and hearing an absolute stranger ask you about sex. Who would answer these questions?

I supervise a huge computer lab(300+ systems) on a university campus and get to observe thousands of young students each day. A lot of the young women(20-25) have three or four chat boxes open, email, shopping sites, etc., and will sit there for hours, seemingly oblivious to the world around them. Several of the female students on my IT staff have little interest in guys other than to see if they are also into technology. It's weird and I can't explain it!

I don’t know who would answer the questions. But I sure would like to have the grant money for such a goofy survey.:)

With a market like that, somebody could make a mint inventing a left-handed mouse for right-handed men.
