SEX FO­RUM Bonkers Brits choose joy of text!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AC­CORD­ING to new re­search a shock­ing 10 per cent of folk check their phones MID-BONK.

The study re­vealed that peo­ple are strug­gling to stay fo­cused be­tween the sheets with one-in-ten lovers ad­mit­ting they reg­u­larly check their mo­biles or send texts.

It found that on av­er­age we spent two hours a day look­ing at our phones, with the alert of a news mes­sage or call in­ter­rupt­ing pretty much ev­ery­thing we do dur­ing the day.

One-in-seven ad­mit­ted to reach­ing for their phones at work, while 95% of those polled have checked their screens dur­ing a so­cial event.

But the most astonishing fig­ure showed that many adults can’t even bear to switch off their phones when they’re SHAG­GING.

Stu­dents at the Univer­sity of Vir­ginia were quizzed over two weeks for the poll which looked at the im­pact tech­nol­ogy has on our ev­ery­day lives.

Psy­chol­o­gist Kostadin Kush­lev ex­plained: “We found ev­i­dence that smart­phone in­ter­rup­tions can cause greater inat­ten­tion and hy­per­ac­tiv­ity – symp­toms of at­ten­tion deficit hy­per­ac­tiv­ity dis­or­der.

“The find­ings sim­ply sug­gest that our con­stant dig­i­tal stim­u­la­tion may be con­tribut­ing to an in­creas­ingly prob­lem­atic deficit of at­ten­tion in mod­ern so­ci­ety.”

Mid­week Sport babe Amanda Perry, 21, told us she was shocked by the fig­ures and can’t be­lieve so many peo­ple are so ob­sessed by their mo­biles that they even take them into the bed­room.

The gor­geous model, from Ox­ford, said: “If a guy I was shag­ging stopped to check his phone, or sent a text in the mid­dle of sex, I would be fum­ing.

“I can’t be­lieve so many peo­ple have ad­mit­ted they ac­tu­ally do it – surely they can’t be hav­ing very good sex if they can’t go the whole hog with­out their ruddy phones.

“To be hon­est though, I’ve never had any com­plaints in the bed­room, so I don’t think I have to worry about my lover get­ting dis­tracted or look­ing for en­ter­tain­ment else­where.

I know how to hold his at­ten­tion.”
