Over in the UK, people are obsessively looking at pictures of cobblestone walkways and warm beer on Facebook instead of focusing on pleasing their mates during sex, according to a new study. Via Metro UK:

Never mind answering the phone during sex – more than five per cent of British people have actually used Facebook while getting frisky in bed with a partner.

Furthermore, it seems London-based lovers are most frequently guilty of this offence… and that men are twice as likely to do it as women are.

I’ve never been in a situation where the other person checked their phone during the sexiness before, thankfully.  I’m honestly not sure how I would react to that type of situation. I think that would be unbelievably humiliating, but over in the UK it sounds about right.

Some 30 per cent of respondents confess their own partner has been distracted by some sort of smart device while having sex, and 60 per cent admit spending more time playing with technology in bed than playing with their partner.

Durex quizzed 2,000 adults as part of the study into how technology is impacting on our sex lives.

If you aren’t 100% focused during sexy time, you’ll probably get yelled at. I don’t care if I look over to my phone and see a text about someone dying, because this is the only response to a phone ringing during sex:

Her – “Your phone’s ringing…”
Me – “Who cares, Kate Beckinsale?”
