Dear Poll: Internet Better Than Sex?

Men and women have used every excuse in the book to get out of sex — I'm too tired, I'm not in the mood, I'm stressed, I have to get up early, etc. Well, now there's a new excuse — "I'd rather surf the Net." Yep, Intel did a survey and discovered that "46 percent of women would rather go without sex for two weeks than give up the Internet for that long." The numbers are slightly lower for guys, only 30 percent of all men would swap lady lovin' for the Internet for the same amount of time. Either these people are having some pretty bad sex, or the web addresses they're visiting are way more exciting than an earth-shattering, orgasmic love session.

These stats depress me. I love technology as much as the next person, but how can it be more important than a real-life, personal, intimate connection? Tell me ladies, would you rather give up sex or your Internet connection for two weeks?

I can't go two weeks without the internet. I would go crazy. Sex loses just because the internet is up there with eating for me.

depends how you look at this question. i would obviously rather have sex than surf the 'net, but giving up sex for two weeks over giving up the internet is different than choosing not to have sex because you want to go online. many people dont get to have sex/ dont have sex everyday anyway, but they use the internet on a daily basis for whatever reason.

Ugh, I voted wrong, since the title is "Dear Poll: Internet Better Than Sex?" I thought I had to pick which one is better. Realized too late it asked me which one I would give up . . .

My work revolves around having internet access. Heh, whatever. I take article to mean internet usage for leisure time at home. Of course, I'd give up the net for 2 weeks vs. sex with my hubby.

Give me sex any day. Internet isn't the real world nor should be your world. My partner and I and our time together means more than that.

2 weeks is not that long to go without sex. At least not for me. On the other hand, I don't mind long breaks from the internet on occasion. (since I am basically glued to my laptop otherwise)

Yep, as much as sex is amazing, you can catch up on it if you leave it for a couple of weeks;) But the internet? You lose that and what is traded can never be gotten back...homework, tests, communication, bills, news, and so much more.

I would-grudgingly-give up the sex. I mean, it'd literally be hard to get by with out the Internet! I couldn't do my online class, pay bills, keep in touch with folks, or do my job! 2 weeks without sex would just be really, really sucky and annoying. And horny.

I would give up sex. Let's be honest: I use the internet EVERY SINGLE DAY. And it's been a while since my husband and I had sex every day. I use the internet for my job and I wouldn't mind the building anticipation of having to wait for sex...it has nothing to do with favoring technology over interpersonal relation ships. I mean, come on, I can still TALK and CUDDLE with my husband right?
