UK men would stay out of bed for 50in plasma telly

Hot widescreen action worth six months' shaglessness

The essential guide to IT transformation

Electrical retailer Comet has confirmed what those of us who boast enormous plasma tellys already know - that when it comes to getting your rocks off nothing beats a bit of hot bloke-on-widescreen action.

A survey by the retailer asked 2,000 Brit chaps what would convince them to give up rumpy-pumpy for six months, and no less than 47 per cent said that they'd skip a shag for a 50-in plasma, Reuters notes.

And just to prove how desirable large displays are, a quarter of pollees reckoned they'd give up smoking to slump in front of a throbbing 50-incher, the same percentage who said they'd eschew chocolate for half a year for the privilege.

Quite what would make the couch potatoes' other halves agree to six long months of voluntary chastity is not noted, but we suspect it might involve an unlimited quantity of choc-based products and a written contract stating they are not legally obliged to watch Arsenal versus Chelsea on their hubbies' crowd-pleasing equipment. ®
