Melbourne: A survey conducted for Lifestyle magazine ‘Neon’ has revealed that nearly 20 per cent of young Germans would prefer to go without sex than to give up using the Internet for a year.
Opinion research institute Forsa, conducted the survey among Germans aged between 18 and 35 with an Internet connection, and found that eighteen per cent of them said their drive to use the Web was stronger than their sex drive.
The survey also found that 57 per cent said that while using the Internet was more important for their quality of life, but having a balcony would always be preferred over a fast online connection.
“The net plays an important role for the first Internet generation but there is also life beyond the World Wide Web,” The Daily Telegraph quoted the magazine, as saying.
“The study depicts a generation that sees the Internet as a fact of life but uses it carefully and deliberately,” the paper quoted editor-in-chief of the magazine, Vera Schroeder, as saying.
