English Survey Says Sex vs. HD a Near-Equal Proposition

Perhaps file this under the get-a-life department… Nearly half of British men surveyed by a CE retailer in London boldly stated that they would give up sex for six months in return for a 50-inch plasma TV. Comet, the retailer in question, said it quizzed about 2,000 male and female Brits about what they would give up for a large television, according to Reuters.

In results perhaps not too surprising coming from a merchant eager to sell large-screen HD sets, Comet found that 47 percent of men would give up sexual relations for half a year—compared to just over a third of women surveyed. (The firm didn’t say if the males and females in the survey were married to each other, which could maybe explain a couple of other things.)

Comet couldn’t overcome the temptation to sum up its survey by simply stating, “It seems size really does matter more for men than women.” Indeed.
