Poll: Women Prefer Skinny Over Sex

by Claudine Zap

Women would forgo sex over gaining 10 pounds over the summer. Half the women in the poll of 1,001 respondents said they'd give up sex for skinny. And about a fourth of the men polled said the same.

But that's not all. Women want to be thin over job promotions, and would be willing to give up TV, their cellphone, even their computer for some weight loss. Yes, being thin is that worth it. Better than texting, better than "Jersey Shore," better than being plugged in. Pretty much better than everything going on in our daily lives.Why? Probably because it's the one thing you can't get simply by logging on, tuning in, or vegging out.

What both men and women aren't willing to do? Actually lose weight. The poll -- sponsored by Nutrisystem -- showed that both men and women wouldn't give up their favorite foods for the inconvenience of dieting.

But sex? Sure, that can go. Here's the best part: The majority say that to feel sexier, they'd have to lose weight. Oh, the unfairness of it all!

I think I would prefer not reading polls like this. What do you think? Would you give up sex to be skinny?
