40 Reasons the Internet is Preferred Over Sex

— December 17, 2008 — Naughty
I knew internet addicts existed but was not aware as to what extent. According to the New York Daily news, a recently released study by the Intel Corporation of 2000 adults, “nearly 1/2 of women and 1/3 of men prefer the internet over having sex.” Whoa!

The Intel Corporation study shows that children aren’t the only ones addicted to the internet. In my opinion, those numbers should serve as a wake-up call for adults. As much as I love the internet, I find it shocking that so many prefer going online over enjoying physical intimacy with their partner. 

Below you’ll find 40 internet related articles; some of which may have been used in place of the “Not tonight honey, I have a headache”, excuse for avoiding sexual relations.
