A new survey, which was first revealed in Israel’s Ynet News, has shown that the average Israeli would prefer to surf the web than have sex.

According to a poll conducted by Google Israel 72% of Israelis would rather give up sex for a month than not have Internet access. In fact, 47% of women and 25% of men would give up sex for a whole year in order to stay online.

This might be more of a statement on the sex lives of Israelis than on how much they are addicted to the Internet.

Apparently, 59% of men and 47% of women would prefer not see their mother for a whole year than give up their Internet connection. Again, this may be more of a reflection on the average person’s relationship with his or her mother than how much they love the Internet.

Also 72% of Israelis prefer to pay their bills online than face to face. This is certainly understandable since in Israel bills are paid in cash at post offices and this sometimes means waiting in line for hours.

People, however, would still prefer a face to face meeting with a doctor rather than look up medical information on line as only 6% of Israelis polled said that they prefer to receive medical advice on the Web rather than visit the doctor’s office.

According to the study the average Israeli spends 4.5 hours a day on line, including time at work and learning.

The study was conducted by the Market Watch IPSOS‬ institute among 511 men and women over the age of 18 from the Hebrew-speaking Jewish population.
