Eight Things People Would Rather Do Than Have Sex

May 20th, 2014    Posted in Offbeat News

bookIf you struck out with the opposite sex this weekend, this might make you bitter . . . apparently a lot of people are TURNING DOWN sex to do other stuff instead.  Here’s a list of eight things some people would RATHER do than have sex.

1.  Eat.  A couple years ago a study revealed that one out of three single people would rather eat than have sex.  And a different study showed 43% of Canadians would rather have BACON than sex.

2.  Use a smartphone.  In an American survey about things people can’t live without, sex finished below smartphones.

3.  Sleep.  This is more for women.  In one survey, 80% of them said they’d rather sleep than get busy.

4.  Own a plasma TV.  Almost half of men in the UK would give up sex for six months to get a 50-inch plasma TV.

5.  Drink hot chocolate.  There was one study where 70 percent of Irish women said they’d take a cup of hot chocolate over having sex.

6.  Go solo.  More than 40% of women say they like pleasuring themselves better than doing it with a partner.

7.  Catch up on paperwork.  Seems like you’d need to be a pretty terrible lover to lose out to a pile of paperwork.  But in the UK, women said they prefer the paperwork.

8.  Read a book.  In the paperwork study, women also said they’d rather read a book than have sex.

Restroom Pet Peeves

May 13th, 2014    Posted in Offbeat News

toiletHere’s a quick reminder of etiquette for public bathrooms:

Do What You Need to Do and Leave – Restrooms aren’t for lingering or catching up on the latest gossip. Once you’re done with what you have to do, leave.

Flush – While you might be proud, no one else wants to see your business.

Keep Your Eyes on the Wall or Yourself – This is a big deal. Don’t creep other dudes out.

Warn Others of Paper Shortages – You’ll get points in heaven if you warn the next person in line that supplies of toilet paper are low in your stall.

Wash Your Hands – After you’re done, be a good citizen of the world and wash your hands. Every person you come in contact with the rest of the day deserves this kindness.
