Conducted by MarketWatch organisation on behalf of Google Israel, researchers asked participants what they would do to prevent their internet connection being snapped for a year.

Nearly 59 percent of men and 47 percent of women said they were willing to give up active relationships with their mothers if they could keep their connection, Times of Israel reported. 27 percent of men and 47 percent of women said they would give up sex for a year in order to get back their internet connection.

"However, if the choice is no sex or no internet for 30 days, 72 percent of men and 84 percent of women would choose the web," the findings showed.

An average Israeli internet user is online 4.5 hours a day searching for information, checking out news and content sites, engaging with social networks, playing games, writing blogs or participating in online forums.

The poll, based on a representative sample of 511 people, covered internet use during both work and leisure time.
