One in four women would pick tablet over sex, suggests survey
Tablets are slowly finding their way to more and more U.S. households, which inevitably alters the every day habits of the modern consumer. That is one thing that we can conclude after checking out this neat infographic, based on a recent survey conducted by Yahoo! A total of 2000 U.S. respondents aged 18 to 64 participated, and the result are quite intriguing, to say the least.

It turns out that 25 percent of women would much rather give up sex for a year to not using their tablet. Additionally, 15% of men would give up their car for a year just to keep their tablet. Men also tend to use tablets in the bathroom a lot more than women do – about a third of all guys admit to frequently bringing their slate to the loo, be it for reading, emailing, or socializing. Furthermore, over 90 percent of tablet owners say they use their tablets in bed before they go to sleep.

More information about the behavior of the modern tablet user can be found in the infographic. Find any of the results provided interesting? Feel free to let us know by dropping a comment.

lol, I was gonna say.. i bet 1 in 4 women are unhappily married, or dont have a sex life to give up. I dont know any chicks that are happy with their relationships that would be willing to give up sex.

Intresting.... That people would rather have their tablets over sex and giving up their car. Tbh I really don't see the use in tablets other than watching movies and YouTube.

I guess you just have to know what you're doing in the bedroom, or your spot will be taken.

@ dark t. Thats because 1in ten (probably more)men who own a iphone prefer D*ck. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Depends on who the are having sex with. The one flaw in the article is that it doesn't say how fat the women who prefer tablets are. In my experience(which is vast :) Most women who feel this would be doin me a favor by abstaining. For all you sexy nerd women out there, Rejoice in this study. Cause that just means there's more of me to go around. & as for the other 25%, buy me a Galaxy Note & we will see what happens ;). Even Taco can't argue with that logic.

bulls**t...........try telling your wife this......i will buy you tablet but no sex in a year.....no wife would want that............its just women usually bragging how they dont need sex , in reality they do need sex.......they feel superior by stating they dont need sex

LOL, those ladies aren't having the bedtime fun with the right people. If I was single and 5 to 10 years younger, I wouldn't mind helping out those ladies.

LOL, unfortunately I'm not single... and not 5 to 10 years younger. Not to mention that "Chronos" as a name doesn't exactly soon woman-ish...

4/4 women that would rather have a tablet than sex would be even better. Sex is a very dull activity.

"about a third of all guys admit to frequently bringing their slate to the loo, be it for reading, emailing, or socializing" angry birds and porn.... i personally think this article is full of it tho. I mean how many women past 50 still want to have sex in the first place? (or cant?)
