Survey Finds Majority of Men Willing to Give Up Sex and Beer Over Internet Access
Research Sponsored by TP-LINK Confirms Mankind's Feelings -- and Fear -- of Where Our Priorities Lie
CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - A new survey conducted with men ages 18 to 45 reveals that Internet access is definitively more important than personal hygiene, sex and alcohol. Conducted by TP-LINK, a global networking provider of networking products, the survey unveiled some shocking -- or maybe not so shocking -- revelations on how intertwined men are with their Internet connectivity.
- 88.5% of respondents would choose their Internet access over vanities such as a mirror, toothbrush & toothpaste, and footwear
- 92.5% of respondents would forgo alcoholic beverages and pub-grub for an entire year in favor of the Internet
- Almost two-thirds (64.0%) of respondents would give up sex for a week before they would give up their ability to get online
While the survey results are promising for websites, online gaming companies and networking gear firms such as TP-LINK, it is sure to be more fodder for significant others and parents who already suspect that the Internet has been raised on a pedestal but weren't sure how to quantify it.
Other interesting findings:
The survey was conducted online by Holos Research on behalf of TP-LINK on March 29 and 30 of 2011. A total of 200 men were polled, with a survey confidence level of 99% accuracy.
