Web or sex? Nearly half of women would rather go online

Interesting news shared by Nikita, hope you all enjoy. Not sure what they guys will think reading this XD

WASHINGTON (AFP) - - Nearly one out of two women would rather give up sex for two weeks than go without the Internet, according to a survey released Monday.

Far fewer men would choose to go without sex, according to the survey of 2,119 adults carried out by the online research firm Harris Interactive and sponsored by Intel Corp., the world's biggest computer chip maker.

Forty-six percent of the women polled said they would rather go without sex for two weeks than give up access to the Internet for the same period of time, according to the survey, "Internet Reliance in Today's Economy."

Only 30 percent of men said they would rather forgo intimate relations than cyber ones.

Ninety-five percent of those surveyed said it is "very important, important or somewhat important" to be able to access the Internet.

Sixty-five percent of those surveyed rated Internet access above other discretionary spending items such as cable television subscriptions (39 percent), dining out (20 percent), shopping for clothes (18 percent) or a health club membership (10 percent).

Sixty-one percent of the women surveyed said they would rather give up watching television for two weeks than give up access to the Internet for one week.

Harris Interactive and Intel said the survey was conducted November 18-20. They did not provide a margin of error for the results.

For me, I would rather give up 2 weeks of time watching TV, and give up sex than spending time sitting in front of computer.

haha. rather have 2 weeks without sex than go without the internet? yeah. they basically can have sex after 2 weeks, y not watch porn for 2 weeks as you can still enjoy using the internet?

A wise and reasonable person would say, it is much more beneficial that way. Just a delay of two weeks? if its a few months or year then that's another story :S
