94% of you would rather give up sex than your phone

22 May 2013

"Sex? No ta."

Apparently, the majority of you lot would rather go without sex than go without your mobile phone. Two thirds of young Britons reckon that they "couldn't live without their phone" and, astonishingly, 9% said they'd rather part with their own children than part with their gadgets.

The survey by Mobileinsurance.co.uk found that 94% of people in the UK would rather live without sex than their mobile phones while almost a quarter of those polled said they were ‘very dependent’ on their handset, while 10 per cent felt they could ‘take or leave’ their device.

Remarkably, the poll also found out that nearly half of the survey would rather live without ‘basic meals’.

Either people weren't taking the survey very seriously or we, as a nation, have reached a stage where we're so jaded that only our phones are our friends and we'd actually rather die than face that realisation.

Which is nice.

    "Either people weren’t taking the survey very seriously or we, as a nation, have reached a stage where we’re so jaded that only our phones are our friends and we’d actually rather die than face that realisation." ...or it's a load of cobblers from a press release from a company selling phone insurance.

    In fairness, kids are annoying and nowhere near as useful as a phone.

    Now all we need is a corresponding sex insurance survey.

    It's a pointless fucking survey though. What situation would ever require you to choose one or the other? It's like one of those "would you fuck your dad if it meant your mum wouldn't be killed" hypotheticals you'd get at school. It's a waste of time survey, and a waste of column inches on BW.
