I figured

According to a recent study developed by Intel 46% of women would rather go without sex for two weeks than give up the Internet. Amazingly enough the older the woman's age bracket the higher the percentage is.

Most users regard the Internet as a means of social interaction so in some ways this makes sense. That and there could just be that many bad lovers out there. Since the advent of high speed communication it's easier and sometimes cheaper to stay in touch with people, read celebrity gossip, or watch television shows even. Still I think men really need to step up their game, myself included. I'm sure any girl I've slept with would prefer taking out the garbage than getting naked with me.

The Internet can become an addiction for many. I know some who will not travel without it whether their plans really necessitate it. In our spoiled culture we have assumed luxury items to be pinnacle to Maslow's hierarchy of needs right up with food and shelter.

I would never rid myself of boobies for any amount of technology. If the choice comes between naked ladies and writing incoherent posts on this blog you can rest assured good nudity will win.

Ladies, what do you think? Can you see yourself giving up the Internet for at least two weeks so you can have sex?

If this drought of mine goes any longer, I'd give up internet for a heckuva long time just for a little somethin'-somethin'.

When I have a person in my life the Internet is not on the forefront of my mind. So, I guess my answer is no ... I wouldn't give up a good tussle in the sack for the net.

I would happily revert to smoke signals, 2 cups and a string, and hieroglyphics if I could be guaranteed some amazing tingles and serious toe curling on a daily basis!

OMG..Are you kidding me. There is no way in hell I would give up sex for internet. Not even if it was bad sex.. I don't know which uptight prudent woman they polled for the survey but clearly they have never had an orgasim. I mean come on...I think you should use this to conduct your own poll...hehehe

Do I really even need to answer this question? Those women polled obviously need to find a man or woman, whatever they fancy, who can do it right. Poor things... that makes me sad.

Sex is always a bigger priority for men, internet or not.

For some odd reason I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this question. Most of the comments I read mirrored my original thought: Sex: Better than Internet. But then I really thought about it. I *need* the internet to do my job, pay my bills, keep track of my schedule, and general communication. I use the internet to conduct research, read things (wewille.blogspot), arrange travel, and… let’s face it… to procure sex. Not directly of course, but the internet is how I find out what’s going on – who will be where – what the plan is for a given evening/weekend/event. While those things (sadly) all too rarely lead to sex… the potential is always there. It’s the age old chicken/egg question. Yes people had sex prior to the advent of The Internet but it has evolved, for many, into an integral and necessary social tool. Sex: Better than Internet, there is no doubt… but two weeks?!?
