Up in Smoke: Tweeting our Sex Lives:

Let’s face it: we interact with each other far differently than we did ten years ago, and it’s all thanks to social media. Interestingly enough, there are a lot of things we’re sacrificing to spend more time with our online accounts. In fact, one poll conducted by Sachs Media Group found that women aged 18 to 34 would rather keep their smartphones than have sex. Obviously, men of that age demographic were five times more likely to give up their phones for a chance at getting lucky but expressed great concern when asked if they would give up alcohol for their smartphones.

When exactly did our social media habits enter our bedrooms so much? There are many statistics out there that are proving we’re getting a little too intimate with our Twitter and Facebook accounts, and they’re getting more and more compulsive each day. Another survey showed that 36 percent of those under the age of 35 check their accounts right after having sex and that men are twice as likely to tweet after sex as their female partners. In the same study, researchers noticed that if you’re an iPhone owner, you’re three times more likely than a Blackberry owner to use social media post coitus.

The real kicker is that we’re 90 percent more likely to share a link on Facebook if it references sex acts. We’re posting about it, but we’re willing to give it up? Now that doesn’t make any sense…
