Goodbye Sex, Hello TV

A UK-based survey released yesterday by Reuters states that 47 percent of 2,000 men surveyed would give up sex for six months in order to get a 50-inch plasma TV. To give you a little perspective, the other options besides sex were chocolate and cigarettes, both of which were only willing to be sacrificed by one quarter of those surveyed.

This information was polled by an electronics retailer so I'm sure they were more than pleased with the results, but I couldn't help but be a bit surprised. It's one thing to not have sex for six months, it's another thing to consciously give it up so ladies, I have to know, would any of you actually give up sex for six months to get a TV, or anything else for that matter?

Hell no! I might try, but I'm sure I'd fail horribly. I get antsy after a couple of days! Haha.

For a substantial amount money and if my love agreed to it, yes. Question, though... does self-sex not apply? If so, then sure. Lol.

Maybe they were not having much or any sex to begin with so it wasn't much of a sacrifice?!

I looked up the price of a 50" online and you can get one through for only $1500! Giving up sex for half a year for $1500!! OMG What ... really?

I wonder how many of the men they polled were getting laid regularly? I bet not many of them. So if you are abstaining already (even if it's involuntary), why not get a 50" plasma TV as a bonus? I wouldn't read into this too much.

I can't really think of anything I'd give up sex for 6 months for... materialistically, that is. If I had to for my love, I would.

Yeah, I just bought a 50 inch plasma, and it wasn't THAT expensive. I'd give it up for 6 months for a substantial amount of money, but not for the price of a TV.

How would you even tell if they weren't having sex? Would you have a camera following them 24/7? I like sex, I would buy my damn self a tv and continue on my merry way!

I would like to think we could abstain for six months for something really major... a TV is not in that category. However we abstained for three weeks before the wedding and it was HARD!

oh yeah, and if my boyfriend agreed to, like, not even look at me for 6 months..thats they only way it would be possible.
CoMMember13630786602261 CoMMember13630786602261 9 years
wait..did I read that totally wrong or did that say that men would be more willing to give up sex than chocolate or cigs? I find that hard to believe! But to answer the I dont think I could do that. Not unless it was for a large sum of money.
