Textual Activity: Study reveals how phones are ruining romance

(Daily Mail)


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.

One woman who spoke to the Durham University researchers described her husband’ s smartphone as the ‘third person in our marriage’. 

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.’
