British Men Say They Would Give Up Sex For Six Months for a TV

Would You Give Up Sex for Six Months for a Plasma TV?

Six months?! Really?! That's how long HALF of a group of British men surveyed claimed they would give up sex for — for a 50-inch Plasma TV. I balked at the length of six months (both for the sake of believing men would really give it up that long, and also because, well. . .six months?!) Then again, that's 50 inches (insert terrible "size matters" joke here) of beautiful, flat, plasma display. That's 50 inches of Project Runway, Lost, and Gossip Girl.

Maybe I could do it. Maybe. I seem to remember very few of you saying you'd give up sex to keep your cell phone, so I'm doubly curious. Spill it!

Apparently my husband wasn't amongst the British men they polled because he told me he'd actually sell his PC to get to me --- and he DID sell his XBox 360 to get to me, and trust me, our sex life is a biiiig part of that. As for me: Seriously, no way. I just don't care about TV that much, nor do I care about screen size that badly.

Plus... a 50" plasma is way better than this 20" I got now.

I've already gone way past 6-months, so it would be no big deal especially to be rewarded with a plasma.

i also don't want a tv that big. just got a 26" and it is plenty big!

I don't really want a plasma that much, so I guess I wouldn't give up anything.

Plasma isn't the end all and be all of displays anymore. LCD's are getting better and better. When I go into an electronics store and look at the TV's, I always gravitate toward the LCD's because they look better. My fiance just got me a 36" Sony Bravia to use as a computer monitor. :) No sex is the opposite of what he's getting. But I know what you're saying. In essence, yes I would give up sex for six months for a really nice(r) TV.

HELLZ NO! Anyways, it's PLASMA! Not even LCD! And I already got a 46" LCD and a 42" Plasma haha!

i would have to read the fine lines.... if it was just straight sex, then yes I could... but everything else that is involved (foreplay, etc.) then NO!

No way...haha. My boyfriend has a 55" that's hanging on his wall right now, so he'd never give up sex with me for another 50" TV.

i agree, six months is a very long time. as my bf put it, 'as if the money the tv would cost, is worth as much as sex'. i would have to agree

Six months is a long time.... I think it would take less than a month to make the money to pay for it.

The question here is whether they mean all sexual contact, or just the act of copulation. I can give that up, but I'd miss the 'making out' stuff. Seriously, it's a 50" Plasma. I'll take it!
