What Would You Choose Over Sex?
Are there some things in your life that are better than sex? The answer is yes, and we’ll take a look at what a large study revealed in just a bit.
Both men and women point out some astonishing facts. For example, over 700 men between the ages of 21 and 50, said they would give up there love life if it meant they would keep their job.
Keep in mind that all of these men were employed. Is this a sign of how bad the economy is? Is the job market that bad or is the world getting that strange?
I mean, come on, there was a time I would skip work if it meant I could do you know what! Now they believe that the job is more important.
And it gets worse, even the women report of some very surprising things they would rather have than a little action. The Huffington Post rounded up recent polls, surveys and research projects and listed six things men and women would choose over sex:
1. A better body
68 percent of women would give up sex for a month if it meant they could get a perfect bikini body. (Source: SHAPE and FitSugar Survey, May 2012)
