Over dinner, in church, while driving, at one of our kid’s performances and even when carrying on a face to face conversation the smartphone is guaranteed to keep you in tune and in touch.
But, of course, there’s more to the story. Now Americans are bringing their smartphones into the bedroom. That’s right — texting while having sex. A recently released study indicated one in ten participants admitted to having used their phone during sex. As far as young adults, ages 18 to 34, make that one in five — 20 percent. Check out this chart by Jumio to see where else Americans are using their phones.
Ok. Do we really have to talk, text, tweet or post while taking a shower or having sex? The “I-must-have-my-phone-with-me-at-all-times” mindset has become such a real problem, there’s now a name coined for the fear of being without your phone: nomophobia — as in no– mo(bile) phone-phobia—— that rush of anxiety and fear when you realize you are disconnected- out of the loop with friends, family, work and the world.
