American men ditch sex for PCs
Playboy survey reveals all
American males are happily ditching sex to play with their PC or mobile phone, a report claims.
Eight per cent of men questioned by Youth Intelligence on behalf of Playboy magazine said they spent less time under the covers with their partner because they were too occupied with their hi-tech gadgets.
The report failed to mention that men are simply catching up with women - who have, after all, opted for the delights of electronic toys for decades.
The national survey, carried out on 750 men and 250 women, also revealed males were spending less time on other manly activities so they could be with their consumer electronics. Around 75 per cent said they watched TV and went to the cinema less, while 36 per cent spent less time outdoors. A third did less sports, while 80 per cent said they'd have to take at least one of their beloved gadgets with them on holiday.
And the products distracting their affections? Top of the list is the PC, followed by mobile phones, PDAs and DVDs. On average, men own seven CE devices.
The January issue of Playboy also revealed that New York is the best major city in the US in which to live if you are a single lad - the Big Apple has more than half a million more single women than men. ®
