Have Sex or Search the ‘Net? The Choice is Clear

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

A new survey released this week has found that an astonishing number of people would rather play online than even have sex.

The survey of 1,000 American computer users, by advertising giant JWT, revealed that 200 of them said that they had less time for sex because of the time that they spent online, while fully 25% of respondants said that they spent less time with their friends because of the Internet.


“It’s clear that there’s been a huge cumulative shift in what we do and what we pay attention to, thanks to new technologies,” observed JWT’s CEO, Bob Jeffrey.

But by far the largest obvious impact to be revealed by the JWT study is that nearly half of all who participated in the survey said that their interest in such media as newspapers, radio, and television, had taken a hit due to their Internet use.

Couple this with last month’s survey which revealed that one in four Americans take their email to bed with them, and it paints a fairly bleak picture indeed.

  1. And what will human beings look like, 200 or 300 years from now?

    they will have two extra fingers on their left hands and extremely extended thumbs so they can press control-alt-delete in one motion nearly instantaneously. there will be a third eye socket in the middle of the forehead, polyphemus style, to accommodate a webcam. in some, a third arm and hand with a built in gyroscope will enable the steady transfer of liquid refreshment from tray to mouth without spillage on the keyboard while continuing typing uninterrupted. in others, a camel-like hump that contains enough nutrition and moisture to sustain an avid gamer for a week will have developed. a rigid collar of skin around the wrist will prevent pringle crumbs from falling between keys. and buttocks will be considerably enlarged and carry extra arteries, veins and capillaries to enable prolonged periods of sitting without development of decubitus ulcers.
