    Default Half of U.K. men would swap sex for 50-inch TV

    Survey found that only a third of women would make the same trade

    LONDON - Nearly half of British men surveyed would give up sex for six months in return for a 50-inch plasma TV, a survey — perhaps unsurprisingly carried out for a firm selling televisions — said on Friday.


    Electrical retailer Comet surveyed 2,000 Britons, asking them what they would give up for a large television, one of the latest consumer “must-haves.”

    The firm found 47 percent of men would give up sex for half a year, compared to just over a third of women.

    “It seems that size really does matter more for men than women,” the firm said.

    A quarter of people said they would give up smoking, with roughly the same proportion willing to give up chocolate.

    Considering the amount of sex that I've been getting in recent years, does that not entitle me to a free TV set, if not several?

    OK, let me think over the long term benefits of a few minutes' humiliation...wait a minute, that's what I said when I got married the first time...

    Yes I'm quoting myself. Apparently I didn't make myself clear...this was an offer to the women of the UK.

    haha. Good point.

    My advice? Go Italian.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.
