Have you ever checked your phone during sexy time? If so, you are not alone; a survey carried out by digital detox organisation Unplug discovered that one in 20 Irish people have checked their phone during sex.

88% of respondents said that using your phone while having a group conversation is rude.

WJ recently reported that a quarter of all couples plan to ban social media on their big day in an effort to curb excessive use mobile use, which is an issue according to Unplug co-founder Chris Flack.

This is possibly due to FOMO – fear of missing out.
