Sex is okay, but television…yes!

March 16, 2006

There isn’t much to add to this one. When it comes to sex and romance, it turns out aging Canadian baby boomers spend a lot more time watching television or surfing the net, according to a new study. 

Specifically, the study found that Canadians between the ages of 40 and 64 spend an average of 15 minutes a day on sex and romance, but can spend as much as five hours a day watching TV or surfing the Internet.

So what about Canadians who watch sex on TV?

I think they mean participation (the kind that takes two)in sexual acts.
