Is Social Media More Thrilling Than Sex?
Over 83% of 18-29 year olds are doing it, most people spend over 7 hours at it a month and in October 2012 alone, we spent a massive 6.7 billion hours immersed. What are we talking about? Why, social media, of course! [Hubspot]
It's true, even at Lovehoney we get a thrill from Twitter, Facebook sends us into a frenzy and Tumblr is tantalising. So this week, we've been thinking about the similarities between sex and social media.
And to celebrate the Thrill we get from sharing, we've decided to give away a newly released Thrill by We-Vibe (worth £94.99) with a Twitter-style competition! This sexy vibe is already getting rave reviews and is set to be a Lovehoney favourite.
To be in with a chance to win, simply comment below and tell us in 140 characters or less why you would love aThrill by We-Vibe.
- A Chicago-based study of 250 undergraduate students has found that checking Twitter and Facebook is more tempting than sex. According to the young people surveyed, they were more likely to succumb to the temptation of checking social media sites - and the more they tried to resist the urge to check Twitter, the more they want to. Which begs the question - would you really choose social media over sex? [Jezebel]
- Think "liking" your friends activity on Facebook isn't enough anymore? Do you want to give them physical reassurance about their online activity? No? Us neither. That's why we're baffled by the "Like-A-Hug", a new "social media vest" that synchronises to your Facebook account and inflates to hug you every time a friend likes your activity on Facebook. Unbelievably, you can even deflate the jacket to send a hug back. Would you buy the "Like-A-Hug" vest? [Daily Mail]
- Facebook's new couple page is causing controversy, but some relationship experts are saying it could be good for your relationship. Relationship expert Debra Macleod thinks that broadcasting your relationship online strengthens ties. She points out, "I think people need to be more defensive and be more public in the fact that they're with somebody". Do you agree with putting your relationship on Facebook? [CTV]
