One out of every five people think the Internet is more important than sex. Which is either a heck of an endorsement for the Internet, or a sign that our sex lives need serious help . . . like flavored lube and activities that require a safe word.
According to a new study by the New York Daily News from Boston Consulting Group, 21% of Americans say they’d go without sex for a year to keep a year’s-worth of Internet access.
77% would give up chocolate for a year for the Internet . . . 73% would give up alcohol . . . 69% would give up coffee . . . and 7% would give up showering for a year.
The study also found the average person would need to be paid $2,500 to live without the Internet. So, um, by the transitive property, does that mean your sex life is only worth a few grand a year? Doesn’t sound right to me.
