LIVING: Is Your Smartphone Ruining Your Sex Life?

What would you rather do … get hot and steamy between the sheets with your significant other, or peruse the Facebook app on your iPhone?


Stumped? So are a lot of other people, apparently.

More than a quarter of women claim that email and the internet are disrupting their love lives, with hand-held devices particularly to blame, according to a survey by pharmaceutical firm Bayer.


Meanwhile, a 1,000-person survey published in March found that about one in 10 people younger than 25 say that they would not mind being "interrupted by an electronic message" during sex. But not everyone is passing up sexy time voluntarily. An increasingly mobile workforce means our boss can bother us at all hours of the day.


In fact, in a recent ABCNews.com article, Los Angeles therapist Jenn Berman blamed the economy for young women’s bedroom blahs.


"Right now, people are losing jobs and working longer hours," said Berman. "They are doing two or three people's jobs and taking pay decreases. They are exhausted."

    just like nearly anything else...
    if it's important, u make time and ignore other things to give it your full attention.
    (and frankly i'd slap that iphone right outta my partner's hand if they picked it up while we were being intimate)

    my boyfriend and i have ignored messages before...
    i think there's only one, which i made him answer, because a group of mates were coming around later that day and one has a habit of turning up early... which can be awkward
    so just incase it was him...
    but other than that, i say just ignore it.
    you shouldn't even have to turn it off, surely the person you love is more important than a phone?

    If a woman ever took out her phone and started texting or checking her online whatever during sex i would promptly tell her too occupy the sofa for the night!

    i am excellent at multi-tasking thanks to my new droid. I can "have hot and steamy sex" and play chess at the same time. My gf even gets her phone out and when i hit it doggy style we play a game of checkers. I really feel this brings us closer together as people. more farther away from the beasts we used to be.

    most of the technology today is designed to separate us from each other, uses high frequency radio mircowave technology that interfers with our normal brain function and can lead to low sex drives thus POPULATION CONTROL.

    FLORIDE AND CHLORINE IN OUR WATER SUPPLE DOES THE SAME THING...IT MAKES MENS DICK NONE FUNCTIONAL. ...If you cant get it up you surely most likely will not make a baby.

    BEST TO BACK AWAY FROM THESE GADGETS AND TALK FACE TO FACE.

    and anything else that is 'allowed' to interrupt sex (phone ringing, knock on the door) proves you have two people in bed whose combined intelligence AND passion could be put into a thimble with room enough left over for a thousand dancing angels...

    give each their respective toys (and a lifetime supply of batteries) and send 'em packing...oh, and good riddance.....

    A phone is not as important as the person you're having intimate time with. If my fiance and I are going to have alone time...we make sure the phones are on silent and we're left alone. I'm not going to comprimise my time with my fiance just because my phone has a text from someone saying "Ohmygee she just dumped him!" or some other useless crap like that! Pfft...if you're more interested in your phone than your significant other, you need a reality check.

    Well said. I haven't seen anyone replied who's actually in the same boat. So thought I should. Mine is such a life since we bought our first iPod 3 years back and worse than the early married life which he always talks to his friends while we are outing keeping me as ass infrobt of him, it was an arranged marriage with heaps of hopes and dreams which ended ip now as 5 years of married life with no babies and no love n care toe
