If it came down to it – I’d choose sex over my phone every day of the week, but over in Australia, the Aussies choose both according to a shocking new survey revealing the weirdest things people do while on their phone.
The study, conducted by Finder, found that over one million people in Australia have admitted to using their phone while having sex – although they didn’t exactly specify what it was they were doing with their mobiles, reports the Daily Mail.
Now I personally find it pretty irritating when people spend a full gig taking photos and videos on their phone instead of actually appreciating the band, so I can’t say I’d feel too great if my partner was scrolling away on Snapchat while we had sex.
The survey also found that there are eight million more phones in Australia than people, while revealing that three per cent of women were on their phones as they gave birth.
And despite being incredibly disgusting – but something a lot of us are guilty of – more than 40 per cent of people use their phones while on the toilet. Thank God for Sony waterproof phones.

There is such a thing as smartphone addiction, and you’d have to argue that those who whip out their phone during sex fall into that dangerous category.
Given how indispensable smartphones have become for Australians, perhaps these figures aren’t entirely surprising.
When you consider the range of ways we use our phones, whether we’re into social media, sexting, video creation or checking stock portfolios, having easy and constant access to your phone is fast becoming a social norm and expected, rather than an oddity.
Whatever you say, mate…
