Unexpected poll finding o' the day

One for all you internet widows and widowers out there:

"According to the survey, conducted by Harris Interactive, nearly half of women (46 per cent) and 30 per cent of men would rather go without sex for a fortnight than give up internet access. For women aged 18-34 it was 49 per cent and for women aged 35-44 it was 52 per cent. Only 39 per cent of guys aged 18-34 would swap the bedroom for the broadband". The survey appears to refer only to our American friends, although that is not explicit.

Perhaps 'want to come up and see my T1 line?' is the pick up line of the future.

Me, I'm not saying a mumbling word.

I'm with the first two commenters here. Not everyone is a practitioner of this curious biological practice.

In my own case, a hormonal deficiency makes it impossible (and, frankly, distasteful to even contemplate), but others will have their own reasons, even if it's only to avoid the fate that Jake Thackray sings of in his song "On Again" !

John - having checked the lyrics, I see what you mean....

John - those lyrics were brilliant.

Croydonian - I've been celibate for over 7 years now. If I had to embrace my last lover I would pay to avoid it. I would pay a lot.

Philipa - I can understand that, based on some of the horrific relationships I have blundered into.
