(Newser) – Almost half of American women would be willing to go without sex for 2 weeks in order to keep their Internet access, a new survey says. Of 2,119 adults surveyed last month, only 30% of men agreed, but that number rose to 39% in the younger 18-to-34 range. The survey was commissioned by Intel to demonstrate the importance of computers in modern life.

The survey revealed a couple of other tidbits, CNET reports: A whopping 87% of respondents say the Web saves them money, and a majority would forgo television for 2 weeks to salvage one week surfing the 'Net.
