15% of iPhone Owners Would Rather Give Up Sex Than Their iPhone [Survey]

According to a survey released today by Gazelle, a high-end consumer electronics trade-in site, consumers really love their iPhones.

Highlights:
Forget the IPO buzz: iPhone, not Facebook, is what consumers truly can't do without. When asked which device or platform they would not be able to live without, a majority (65%) chose iPhone, while only a few (1%) report not being able to do without Facebook. Nearly 15% of respondents said they'd rather give up sex than go for even a weekend without their iPhone. Now that's love.
Tim Cook, are you listening? Consumers want an iPhone with a larger screen. Nearly 40% of respondents report a bigger screen is the feature they would most like to see added to the next version of the iPhone. Apple has remained non-committal about whether the next version will feature a larger screen, but if the decision was left in the hands of consumers, we'd all need a little extra room in our pockets and purses.
Thanks to iPhone, consumers have been able to reduce the number of devices they own. Nearly 70% of survey respondents report waving goodbye to their iPod or mp3 player since purchasing an iPhone. Fifty-five percent have ditched their camera, and over 40% have gotten rid of their GPS unit since buying an iPhone.
iPhone is ruining our manners and we love it anyway. More than 25% of survey respondents report that they "almost always" use their iPhone while in a social setting such as during a meal or while at a party. iPhone hasn't just changed how we communicate and access information – it's also completely changed live social interaction. A combined 58% of respondents say they use their iPhone in a social setting either "usually" or "occasionally," while only 17% of respondents report using their iPhone in such a situation either "rarely" or "never."
Think twice before you reach for a friend's iPhone – you don't know where it's been. Nearly 85% of respondents report having used their iPhone while in the bathroom. Perhaps more disturbingly, nearly 4% of respondents report having used their iPhone while having sex.

This is to everybody posting on this one. You're lying if you say you don't use your iPhone in the bathroom who doesn't make a call look at something while taking a crap lol don't lie you've done it before and for anybody getting a nice piece of ass yeah you take a picture of it if she lets you cause you know he will let you. And no they didn't ask young kids all these questions lol I can't tell if you guys are just making jokes about that or if you're dumb enough to think that you have to have the parents approval to ask kids any questions otherwise it's creepy. I love that everybody I know has an iPhone that's why I don't pay to text anyone anymore. What's funny is people I don't like have Android phones lol. But as for giving up sex yeah I'm not a nerd I have a girlfriend and she's skinny and she's cute and I don't really feel like putting my phone down when I pop her kitty so I'm not going to give up my phone for sex but I think Summy people could use maybe a picture of that if you're really dumb enough to give up your phone for sex lol. By the way I do agree this is not news this is just entertainment plus this is a Mac site we're part of the cult of the elite whether anyone else agrees or not!

Three questions: 1) who was childish enough to commission such a moronic survey? 2) Why has this even made it into the press? 3) Who in their right mind is even remotely interested?

15% are farmers which would give up having sex with their sheep (bestiality), continue having it with their wifes (or children)
