Survey Finds One in Five Give Up Sex for Internet

Guess this explains you guys, no?

More than a quarter of respondents -- or 28 percent -- admitted spending less time socializing face-to-face with peers because of the amount of time they spend online.

It also found that 20 percent said they spend less time having sex because they are online.

Cell phones won out over television in a question asking which device people couldn't go without but the Internet trumped all, regarded as the most necessary.

I'm pleased to tell you that I went without TV, internet, or phone access for two weeks this summer while in Costa Rica (then the NBA draft was on, so we found a cheap 'net cafe and ended up coming back day after day just to check on things).
