It seems us Brits really are happiest getting into bed with a Blackberry or choosing to snuggle up with a smartphone.
Perhaps heartening news coming up to Valentines Day – forget the boyfriend/girfriend, just buy an iPad. That’s what we all want deep down. Anyway according to some research by vouchercodes.co.uk
> 62% of us admit to checking emails on our phone whilst in bed at night
> 49% of men admit to playing games on their mobile phone while in bed with their partner.
> 26% of men them admitting to pausing whilst having sex to check their phone after hearing it beep
> 33% of people would use their laptop in bed
> 23% of people use iPhones in bed and 9% of us use Blackberries.
So perhaps it’s not surprising that 14% of Brits believe that mobile phones, laptops, tablet devices and iPods should be banned from the bedroom.. though to be honest I think that’s a bit extreme. A ban on Angry Birds is fair enough, but banning laptops and iPods and smartphones – that’s just crazy. What are you supposed to do in there- just talk and read poetry?
But technology helps romance as well as getting in the way of it… The same survey also found that one in ten Brits have had a romantic relationship with someone they first met on Facebook.
