The Durex study polled 2,000 British residents to understand if technology had an adverse effect on their sex lives.

Nearly 30 percent of respondents reported that their partners had been distracted by their mobile devices during sex.

About 60 percent said they spend more time playing with technology in bed than they do focusing on their partners, said the report published in The Daily Dot.

Over five percent of them admitted using Facebook while having sex with their partner.

The survey, however, did not go to the length to determine why is this happening.

“The thought of two people having sex while they both check Facebook is an alarming trend,” the survey added.
