One-Third of Americans would give Up Sex to keep their Phones
 

iPhone owners are even more willing to give up sex to keep their beloved iPhone.

Today navigation solution company TeleNav published the results of a survey the company commissioned. According to the survey, one-third of all respondents would be more willing to give up sex for a week than their mobile phone. Smartphone users were more attached to their devices than were feature phone users, with iPhone users leading the pack. In fact, iPhone users were more likely than their Android or BlackBerry counterparts to spend a week without their significant other, exercise or shoes—rather than go a week without their phone.

I think this result is misleading. Why? Before willing to give up something, you actually would need to have it. My interpretation of the data is that two-thirds of the phone owners get laid at least once a week and one-third not. 

Here is another result from the survey. While 22% of all respondents said they would rather give up their toothbrush than their phone for a week, this number jumped to a whopping 40% among iPhone users. What does that tell us? iPhone owners like to stink out of their mouth? Or maybe there is a actually an app for brushing teeth.

You can read the results of the full survey on the Telenav blog. I am not sure what motivated the company to commission that survey, but hey maybe you get a smirk out of it.
