Lots of time spent at the range, as opposed to "live fire" exercises?

"Of course when it comes to TV, perhaps size matters, at least according to a different survey earlier this year of Britons conducted by electronics retailer Comet. Almost half of the men polled said they would give up sex for six months in return for a 50-inch plasma TV, according to Reuters.

That compared with just over a third of women who were willing to make the same sacrifice for the big-screen television."

Bigger isn't always better.

You know, whenever a "study" (really just a poll) like this comes up, I always wonder about the fact that they never clarify "...of sexually active respondants" or if they just include everyone who answers.

It's like asking a homeless man if he'd give up driving a Mercedes to have a sandwich.

Heh, it'd be pretty funny if it turned out to be a web-based survey.

Kinda like asking an alcoholic if he'd give up bathing for six months in exchange for six months' worth of vodka.

Hey, it's not my parent's basement...it's my college friend's attic.

Seriously though, I remember an actual study about the number of people who had been sexually active and how active over a certain period of time. Some might be surprised how little even married people make love...and it tends to be a gap between developed and developing nations, where people tend less to put watching a football game in high definition above developing a good relationship with their spouse.

If only getting sex was as easy as clicking the Firefox icon on my desktop... all things in moderation, I suppose.

I would give up the internet for a year for sex. But that's never going to happen, so I have nuffin to worry about.

How can you give up something you never had?

is this a trade-off? If I give up the internet, can I have sex again?

Why'd you go again?

And if you say "Akihabara," you're fired from life.
