10 Percent of People Would Check Messages During Sex

10 Percent of People Would Check Texts During Sex — Would You?

Although I've admitted to keeping my iPhone on me at all times, I'm a little surprised at these numbers: a recent study says that almost 10 percent of people on average are OK with interrupting sex to check electronic messages. Unbelievable? Well, that number climbs even higher for those of you under the age of 25. But it doesn't stop there — nearly 50 percent of people 25 or younger are OK with dinner-time interruptions, while nearly a quarter of study participants would check messages while in the restroom. I have a problem with people whipping out their phones to check emails and messages while at the table, so this goes way beyond my boundaries of text etiquette for me.

Could this indicate that as a society we are addicted to staying "connected" . . . or is it really telling us that we're just not that good in bed? Either way, tell me — would you interrupt sex to check a message?

I've started turning off my phone completely. The constant dings and buzzes interrupt!

I don't get a lot of messages anyway, and when I'm having sex, there's very little in the world more important to me. And I don't think I could be so mean and do it in order to tell someone they're boring.

Umm would that be considered rude?

Personally, the only way I would check my BB during sex (whether it be email, texts, or a call) is if I had children, or someone else who was dependent on me and I knew they may need to get into contact with me for something at that time. For example, I live next door to my parents, and I have a teenage brother. If my parents are out of town, and I get a phone call from my parents house (thank God for custom ringtones) in the middle of the night, I am answering that phone ASAP. Seeing as how EVERYONE has cellphones these days, and text messages seem to be the fastest way to communicate quickly, I could DEFINITELY see how single parents, parents who are out of town or on a date, someone taking care of an elderly parent, etc. would check their messages mid-sex. Let's be honest, making love is wonderful, but if someone is hurt, you can wait to get your groove on 'til later.

NO NO NO NO NO! WTF?? Why are people so freaking rude these days? Does ANYONE have any common sense left? WHY would you be checking your text messages??

The only - and I do mean ONLY - time I would check my messages or not be upset if my husband checked his, would be if we were out of town, on an overnight trip, or something, and someone was watching our kids. My son has severe nut allergies, as well as severe asthma, and while I trust my parents and/or his parents completely, I would still want to know as soon as possible if something was wrong. Otherwise, I'm not even thinking about phone calls or messages while I'm with my husband! ;)

I think it's time to question your sex life if text messages are more important.

if you have time to stop and check you text then the sex is no good and you should spice it up

Maybe if the sex wasn't doing it for me anyway. :P
