The Smartphone Survey 2016: Sex & Romance Thursday 8 September 2016 PDF Print According to a survey, commissioned by gadget insurance website Row.co.uk, over 700,000 Brits believe their addiction to their mobile phone has gotten in the way of their sex life. On the other hand, a larger number may say it has helped them. There are over 40 million smartphone owners in the United Kingdom and the devices are certainly having an impact on our day to day lives, including our romantic pursuits. New figures suggest that 3 in 20 Brits admit to using their mobile phone to secretly flirt with other people while in a committed relationship. No wonder so many of us have trust issues! The same research shows that 28% of us regularly read our partner’s texts and snoop through their email inbox. We don’t just use our mobile phones to be unfaithful; 39% of us use our smartphones to start new relationships by asking people out via text or an app like Tinder. 13.5% then use our phones while out on a date. Who said romance isn’t dead? For 1 in 4 of us, text is our preferred method for ending a relationship. Technology also takes away the need for chivalry, apparently. Amusingly, 13% of us have missent a flirty message and 7% of us have sent a flirty photo of ourselves to the wrong person! Several survey respondents admitted sending revealing photos to their ex, while one claimed to have done so to a family member! Well, this is awkward… James Holden James.Holden@emailbig.co.uk 0203 642 0131 *Please consider linking to Row.co.uk when using this research. This supports us to continue producing quality content.
