San Francisco - A new survey sponsored by computer chip giant Intel has
found that about half of US women would prefer to go without sex for two
weeks than manage without the internet for the same period of time.
Titled Internet Reliance in Today's Economy, the poll found that 49 per
cent of women aged 18 to 34 would opt to forgo sex for two weeks rather
than do without the internet, while 52 percent of women ages 35 to 44
made the same choice.
The results among men were less tech-friendly. Among males ages 18 to
34, about 39 per cent selected internet time over sex while just 23 per
cent of those between 35 and 44 preferred the internet.
About 65 per cent of the 2,119 respondents believed they could not live
without Internet access, compared to 39 per cent who could not go
without cable TV, 20 per cent who had to dine out and 18 per cent who
had to shop for clothes. Just 10 percent were lost without a gym
Not surprisingly the vast majority of respondents - 91 per cent - said
life was better because of the internet. About 68 per cent of
respondents touted the money-saving capabilities of the web via online
shopping, while 78 per cent said they felt their lives had improved
because they were able to keep in touch with friends and family.
Meanwhile, 47 per cent said they could manage their finances better with
the help of the internet.
