Cuffing season is officially here and that means a whole lot of sexy time is on the horizon, but with our phones practically glued to our hands, are they the third wheel making our sex lives a nightmare?
According to a recent study from SellCell, 1 in 5 daters actually admit to taking a pause to check emails, respond to texts and answer phone calls mid-bang.
Imagine getting hot and steamy under the sheets, only for an unexpected blue glow to be the ultimate buzz-kill.
Nothing ruins doing the deed more than your partner rolling over to fixate on their phone mid-bonk.
Out of over 5,000 adults surveyed, SellCell recorded a surprising 26% would rather check emails than focus on their partner, while 24.4% can't resist the buzz of a social media notification during intimate moments.
And let's not forget the brave 7.6% who openly admit to sneakily checking Tinder or messaging other potential dates, sheesh!
So, with 71.0% of people spending more time on their phone each day than they do with their partner, what’s the go?
“People are now struggling to distinguish how to function without their smartphone in every aspect of their life even in the bedroom,” Sarah McConomy, report author at SellCell, told The Post.
“People check their phones around 100 times a day and have a deeper intimacy with their phones than with their partner.”
“Phones are now the centre of their worlds and have become more important than the buzz released through sex,” McConomy added.
In 2018, only 1 in 10 people confessed to giving their phones more attention than their SO. Fast forward to today, and that number has doubled.
So, the next time you wanna reach for your phone in the heat of the moment, maybe think twice and give your partner the attention they deserve - After all, nobody wants an unexpected digital threesome.
