Looking for a way to minimize the time you spend trying to convince someone to hop in the sack? It turns out Facebook is the answer—in a sex survey from Shape and Men's Fitness magazines, 58% of men said flirting over Facebook and other social media helps them get women in bed faster. For women, 80% agreed that relationships move to the sex stage more quickly than before social media was available.

It's creating a sense of "faux intimacy" between couples who think they're tuned into each other but really aren't. "It's easier to hop into bed than have a relationship," she said. "It's all a function of the fast-paced world we live in, where communication skills, genuine communication skills, which means face-to-face communication, are quickly going by the wayside."
