Smartphone Addiction – 9% of US Adults Use Their Phones During Sex, 12% In The Shower (wtf?)
A new chart from Jumio/Harris Interactive shows just how addicted we are when it comes to our smartphones. Evidently the survey results indicated that 72% of smartphone owners are almost always within 5-feet of their devices. Not to mention that 3/4 smartphone owners check their devices as soon as they wake up (I’m one of them). Another 40% check them every 10-minutes.
Perhaps it is not such a surprise then that 55% of adults use their phones while driving (guilty on this one too). Meanwhile, another 35% use them in the movie theater, and 33% do so on a dinner date. Another 9% use them during sex, and 12% WHILE THEY’RE IN THE SHOWER?!
