  • Many People would forgo Sex for Social Media

Apparently there are many people who would gladly forgo such an exciting and pleasurable thing as sex for the sake of a technologically connected life. They couldn’t live without their iPhones.

There are things that ordinary people would gladly exchange for a Facebook account, iPhone and iPad in their lives. It turns out to be the case that these online media services are pretty addictive.

All across the length and breadth of the United States, people are positively addicted to technology for better or for worse. Some of them would push their best friends down the stairs for the sake of a WiFi connection. 

This constant use of gizmos and gadgets has led to a state of affairs where the users of these devices have forgone major life events and even been subject to harm through the technology. An average adult can only last 16 hours without his or her mobile phone.

Beyond that the onset of misery is a definite sign of the withdrawal symptoms. Many people keep their iPhone at a distance of three feet at all times. Such extreme co-dependency may prove problematic in the end. 

Over 1500 people were studied by scientists in the USA. A third of these couch potatoes (or should it be mouse potatoes) spent most of their time on their cell phones, laptops and tablets.

About half of the participants in the study visited hot spots or exciting events so as to take pictures and video clips of “the scene”. Some of the answers the AI addicts gave to the queries were shocking.

One lady said that she went to sleep everyday while using her iPhone. Usually her husband enters the bed late at night and he often sleeps on top of the iPhone. The iPhone once had its camera button pressed by the husband and it took photos of his genitalia! 

Another dude happened to walk into a cow while using his iPhone and sprained his ankle. There is a litany of tales that tell of people tripping, falling or bumping into things while using their tech devices in a compulsive manner.

Many of these addicts miss out on life’s small moments of happiness and pleasure. They don’t interact with their children while they are very small. Neither do they celebrate their kids’ birthdays with the pomp and show they used to be held with in the past before the online media onslaught.

Devices have taken over such simple joyful things as a vigorous gym workout, wild sex, good music to listen to and most of all…friends to share experiences with.
