20 Percent Of You Are Officially Taking Multi-Tasking Too Far By Using Your Smartphones During Sex

Harris Interactive conducted an online survey 1100 adults. Nine percent of all adults polled admitted to using their cell phones during sex. That figure jumped to 20 percent when looking at adults ages 18-34. What is going on?

I really hope they were looking at something like this Tantric Sex App. Who can remember all of those positions without a visual refresher? Or maybe they’re getting freaky with a little hand-held porn? I sincerely hope the majority of these people were using their phones as some kind of digital sex-aide. I would condone that, although I’ve never thought to try it.

There are also those who use apps to help with tracking fertility. Maybe this is what is going on in some of those bedrooms. It seems like something like this would be kind of a mood-kill though. Maybe I’m reaching here.

I really don’t want to face the simple fact that some people may be so addicted to their phones that they can’t even leave them alone when they’re having sex. That is too depressing to even imagine. With 72% of the respondents of the survey admitting they keep their phones within five feet the majority of the time – this may not be far from the truth. Jesus, can you imagine: you’re naked with another person but you just have to see if anyone liked that witty little link you put up on Facebook? Or retweeted that Jay-Z review? What is the world coming to?

I know it is becoming increasingly harder for me to focus on anything with my computer in the room. When I finish writing for the day, I usually stash it out of sight just so I’m not tempted to obsess over whether someone found a spelling error or is slamming me for one of my points-of-view. I can honestly say that I have never felt the urge to reach for my phone during sex. If you have, you may need a digital detox.
