Give Up Sex or Your Mobile Phone? Third of Americans Forgo Sex

Almost a third of Americans would rather give up sex for a year than part with their mobile phone for that long, according to a survey by The Boston Consulting Group.

In other signs of Americans’ love affair with their mobile devices, more than 55 percent said they would forgo dining out for 12 months rather than give up their phone, while 45 percent said they would put off going on vacation. More than three in 10 would stop seeing their friends in person, while 46 percent would be willing to give up a day off per week.
