Textual Activity: Study reveals how phones are ruining romance
Our love affair with mobile phones, iPads and other gadgets is ruining our sex lives, research shows.
In-depth interviews with couples revealed that modern technology is playing havoc with our relationships.
Some 40 percent of those questioned said they had put off having sex to make a phone call, send a text message or surf the web.
Others said they had rushed romance in order to respond to messages.
And one third admitted to answering their phone during sex.
Another said: ‘Sometimes I’ll be on Facebook and he’ll be on a sporting app while we are both in bed; we realize that we are sitting next to each other but living in different worlds.’
