Women Prefer TV Over Sex, Survey Says

A new survey of 2,000 British women claims that 39 percent of them would rather watch TV than have sex with their partners. Recently, these kinds of surveys have reported that 1 in 10 women prefer their pets to their partners, and 76 percent of 500 women surveyed preferred "me time" to "sexytime" (the latter being a survey conducted by Celestial Seasonings, so the subtext is that two thirds of women want a warm mug of Cinnamon Apple Spice Herbal Tea to anything sexual). We're beginning to wonder if the corporate world is bent on proving that we hate sex.

But we get it, Scandal is getting really good this season. Nobody is going to argue that watching Scott Foley shirtless isn't pretty great, but here are some of the other activities the survey participants would apparently chose over sex: "Reading a book, watching a film, rustling up an indulgent dinner, pampering themselves with a beauty treatment, catching up on paperwork," reports the Daily Mail. Paperwork! Paperwork over sex. (The survey was unsurprisingly conducted by a TV company called Now TV).  On a related note, when asked what TV character they would most like to be, this group of survey-takers ranked Lady Mary Crawley of Downton Abbey as one of their top choices. So make of that what you will.
