10% of Under 25s Think It’s Okay to Text During Sex

Oh dear. From the “there’s never been a better time to worry about the future of civilization” department comes the disturbing news that one in ten young people under the age of 25 deem it perfectly okay to send SMS messages during sex. It certainly gives new meaning to the term “sexting.”

A recent survey by consumer electronics shopping and review site Retrevo uncovered the disturbing statistic along with a few other generation gap metrics, including under 25s being far more likely to think it’s okay to text during meals or while in the bathroom — something Charmin would surely approve of.

We all know multi-tasking even in social situations is becoming more culturally commonplace, but are there limits? If there are, it looks like they aren’t in the bedroom: a whopping 76% of millenials report checking Facebook or Twitter after getting into bed at night and/or before getting out of bed in the morning.

What do you think: are there situations where we should be drawing the line? When is it not appropriate to be text messaging or social networking?
