WoW widows have today been vindicated, with a new survey revealing that internet access is more important to men then sex.
In a survey of some 200 men aged between 18 and 45, 64 per cent revealed they would give up sex for a week before giving up their ability to get online.
The survey also revealed that some 92.6 per cent of respondents would give up alcoholic beverages before giving up online access, and that 88.5 per cent would choose the internet over vanities including a toothbrush and footwear.
When asked what their reaction was when their internet went down, 63.5 per cent said they calmly searched for a solution while 22 per cent they would steal someone else’s Wi-Fi signal.
Other key findings were that men predominately spent their time reading and sending emails at 87.5 per cent, and that YouTube came in a close second with 72.5 per cent.
