One in three mobile phone owners believe it is acceptable to answer the phone while having sex, a new study suggests.


New research collected by British-based mobile company Vodafone — which conducted a study among 2,000 British adults — found that mobile phones continue to infiltrate some of our most intimate moments.


The study revealed that 33 percent of respondents would pick up the phone to answer a call during sex. In addition, 51 percent said it’s OK to do so at a wedding and 54 percent said it is acceptable to pick up while out to dinner.


The report also found that most owners have between one and 50 numbers in their contacts, but they only speak to about five to 10 of those on a regular basis. Another recent study by Verifone reports that 40 percent believe talking on the phone is a dying art form.


So what does this mean? Perhaps it’s only a matter of time before people start ignoring calls during sex … and opt to check their text messages instead.
