A survey suggests that many of us are beginning to use online shopping as an expression of not being, you know, side stepping our matrimonial responsibilities in the bedroom, and the surprise here… men use the excuse more than women.
Despite the best efforts of Pierre Elliot Trudeau, who insisted that the government had not place in the bedroom, it seems that your smartphone may.
New research suggests that the latest “Not tonight honey, I have a headache”, is to say they’re busy online shopping.
The new study sponsored by EBates looked at 1,000 adults with some fascinating conclusions.
Some 10 percent of women say they use their mobile devices — and the excuse of shopping on them — to deter their lovers from getting amorous.
But here’s the nugget that might astound even more: 13 percent of men admitted to doing the same thing.
Personally, I’m not sure how I would feel telling a partner that I wasn’t feeling “frisky” because I was trying to decide which pair of wireless headphone to buy.
The original purpose of this survey was merely to examine mobile shopping habits. It seems that 45 percent of Americans use their mobile devices to shop — and 10 percent claim they do it daily.
49 percent of the respondents confessed that shopping on their mobile device cures boredom while they’re waiting in line. And 24 percent somehow couple mobile shopping with watching reality TV.
The conclusions? Clearly the difference between sex and online shopping is that it’s much harder to haggle while online shopping.
