Many of us are constantly stuck to our phones whether we're texting, Tweeting, checking emails or playing Angry Birds.

But in a recent survey, HuffPost UK Lifestyle were shocked to learn of the true phone habits of the British public.

A survey carried out by Vodafone, which polled 2,000 people, revealed that over a third of men would answer the phone during sex. Yes, you heard us right. During. Sex.


A further 62% revealed that they would answer the phone on a date or the toilet.

During a wedding, at the dinner table and on a date are also times when people will take a call rather than wait and call back later, according to the majority of those questioned.

When asked about his phone habits Patrick Kelly, 28, Wandsworth said: “I would never answer the phone during sex but I would answer the phone on the toilet if it was serious. Would I answer the phone on a date? It depends on whether I like the girl.”

A survey carried out by Vodafone revealed the full extent of the roles mobile phones play in modern life.
