Did you know: One in five young adults in America use their smartphones during sex
If you read PhoneArena, you probably love smartphones. You probably love your smartphone, too! But have you seriously thought about how much, exactly, do you love your smartphone?

According to a study from around two years ago (sorry, they don't make them every year), nearly one in ten smartphone owners in America admit to using their handset (handset, not hands!) during sexy times! Young adults aged 18 to 34, in particular, are especially into smartphone-ing during intercourse-ing, with one in five having admitted to using their phones in the middle of it.

Given these results, it's hardly surprising that 12% of surveyed users believe their smartphone use is messing up their relationships in some way or another. Marketing officer (and possibly part-time psychologist) Marc Barach explained the phenomenon, saying that "people view their smartphones as an extension of themselves, taking them everywhere they go".

Moreover, he added that nearly 30% of surveyed adults have admitted to spying on someone else's device out of privacy concerns, which is just one of the many slightly diabolical ways technology is creeping up on our daily interactions. Sex life included. Are we truly prepared to handle the wealth of personal information sharing enabled by constant connectivity and internet socializing? Should we be worried about the future generations? Of the future of our species?

Nah. Just don't be using your smartphone during sex — you obviously have better things to do!

Proper English and deciphering are two separate things.. Again learn how to write a complete sentence before speaking..

Recording functionality people. Amateur porn doesn't film itself.

That explains why everyone's focusing on front camera quality this year.

Thank you Google for the Nexus 6P camera that takes better low light images which is typically the setting for the those doing "hanky panky".

Earlier we had RaceCardArena. Now we have AmateurPornArena. At least you guys are drawing clicks. And must say more interesting than reading (or commenting on) some boooring Elophone, Xaimoi, or even HTC. Must give credit where due.

I bet most of them are iPhone users too...lol /S I've said it many times, if you phone doesn't last a full day on a single charge, then you are using your phone too much. I made it a rule in my house that electronic device usage is not permitted in bed. First one to break the rule? The wife...lol of course she reads while in bed which is fine. The rule is if we are both in bed. When I come to bed even if I don't plan to get busy, I don't touch my phone unless it rings. My Note last me 1.5 days on a charge, I guess I don't use it enough. Drivers, people jogging, crossing the street taking baby steps because they so into their phone texting or talking; all drives me crazy. There are times I just want to florr the accelerator and runt hem over because they already don't have the light and they wanna hold me up to play with their phones.

They really should've clarified WHAT they were using it for. Big difference between picture/video taking and checking facebook mid-coitus.
