4% of people admit using their iPhone during sexy time
The folks at Gazelle – the same ones who exchange used electronics for cash, have conducted an interesting research studying how smartphone owners use their handsets. In particular, they were curious to know how attached iPhone owners were to their handsets. And so they polled a 1000 people, and the results are out for the world to see.

Surprisingly, 15% of respondents admit that they would rather give up sex for a weekend than not use their iPhone for the same period of time. This lines up well with the results from a similar survey about the habits of tablet users. According to the latter, a quarter of women who own tablets prefer their slates to the intimacy with their partners. Another interesting thing that the Gazelle study reveals is that about 4% of iPhone owners have used their devices while having sexy time.

Further results from the study do not deal with such delicate subjects, but are interesting to know nonetheless. Here are some other highlights:

  • Consumers want an iPhone with a larger screen. Nearly 40% of respondents report a bigger screen is the feature they would most like to see added to the next version of the iPhone.
  • Thanks to iPhone, consumers have been able to reduce the number of devices they own. Nearly 70% of survey respondents report waving goodbye to their iPod or mp3 player since purchasing an iPhone. Fifty-five percent have ditched their camera, and over 40% have gotten rid of their GPS unit since buying an iPhone.
  • iPhone is ruining our manners and we love it anyway. More than 25% of survey respondents report that they “almost always” use their iPhone while in a social setting such as during a meal or while at a party. iPhone hasn’t just changed how we communicate and access information – it’s also completely changed live social interaction. A combined 58% of respondents say they use their iPhone in a social setting either “usually” or “occasionally,” while only 17% of respondents report using their iPhone in such a situation either “rarely” or “never.”
  • Think twice before you reach for a friend’s iPhone – you don’t know where it’s been. Nearly 85% of respondents report having used their iPhone while in the bathroom.

PA should add this disclaimer:
If your spouse leaves you because of you using the iphone,we will not be responsible for any monetary or emotional loss.

Man sex must not be good if you need to use your iPhone or any phone/tablet during the act. Wow I have 2 kids & I still bang the brains out of my hot wife.

Man it must suck for those people. I don't know about you guys but both me & the wife sleep like champs after the sexy time.

Just shows you the mindset apple have managed to programme into the suspectible brains of the masses for some results like these to have occoured!!!

I would think its also probable that 44% of iphone users have had actual intimate sexy time with the iphone itself

It all depends on how the question is worded. If the question was "Do you want a bigger screen for your iPhone? Yes/No", then you would be correct because 60% of people would have said no.

If it said "What feature would you most want for the next iPhone", then gave a list of 10 choices and the iPhone came up with 40% that would be a resounding declaration that most people want a larger screen.

No, it said 40% is the feature they would like to see MOST. Meaning up against bigger battery, more memory, 4G connectivity, etc. this is what they want above the other features. Read the article again...

Roadkizzle you are correct.

I'm sure that most people who use their phone in pound town use it to record video. I know I do. Or maybe they've got one of those sex positions apps. Those can be handy. Hey, they should do a poll: How many people use their smart phones to rub one out. That IS why cases with kickstands were invented, isn't it?

Considering it can be used an unlimited number of times, it seems cheaper than a condom.
