Once upon a time in America, people were only distracted during sex by career worries and thoughts of their butts jiggling.

But nowadays, we have cell phones, which at times are much more interesting than coitus could ever be. As a consequence, one in 10 people admits to having used a mobile device during sex, Mashable reports.

What are they doing? Probably playing stupid games or taking selfies.

Also, 12 percent of the study’s respondents said their smart phones were getting in the way of their romantic relationships. Okay, sure, whatever makes you feel better…
