Modern woman: from Web to bed

Remember men are studs, women are slags

One in ten women who use the Internet end up shagging someone they met on the Web, or so says a survey by newomanonline.co.uk. A quarter of the click-chicks have also used the Net to build a "romantic friendship" - which is probably a euphemism for only sleeping with them on the third date.

This is good news for, say, a single, male online journalist. Although, sadly, we don't believe a bleedin word of it. Are people really using the Internet to find carnal encounters? Sounds a bit dodgy to us. Plus, what's the likelihood of finding someone who lives close enough to do the wild monkey dance with you? A far better option would be to go to a bar in town, drink too much and drag some poor soul home.

Still, nice thought. Now where are those newsgroups? ®
