62% of women check their phones during sex
Apparently, 62% of women in Britain have interrupted sex so they can check their mobiles. Fine if you're livetweeting your ruttings; not so great if your partner is so tedious that you feel compelled to read the Sky Sports app to see if Suarez has bitten anyone again.
The survey, in which 1,747 men and women were polled by VoucherCodesPro, found that only 48% of men stopped shagging for the same reason.
So why are people stopping themselves while on the job? The most popular reason for interrupting sex was to answer a call (34%), while 24% have paused to read or reply to a text. 22% admitted to reading or replying to emails during a sexual encounter, with an appalling 12% saying that they've made phone calls.
4% have stopped sex to check or update a social network... presumably a number of those shared a selfie on Instagram while someone was burrowed in their nether-regions.
VoucherCodesPro spokesman George Charles said: "The results of this study, although amusing at first, do pose the question of just how much we have all allowed technology to dominate our lives.
"It is particularly shocking that more women confessed to checking their phones during intimate moments than men.
"Yes, our lives are hectic and full of work and personal commitments, but surely we can all still take the time to dedicate ourselves to a little romance now and again without the constant need to check our mobile phones?"
