Nearly one out of two women would rather give up sex for two weeks than go without the Internet, according to a survey of 2,119 adults carried out by the online research firm Harris Interactive and sponsored by Intel Corp., released Monday.

Forty-six percent of the women polled said they would rather go without sex for two weeks than give up access to the Internet for the same period of time, according to the survey, "Internet Reliance in Today's Economy."

Only 30 percent of men said they would rather forgo intimate relations than cyber ones.

Ninety-five percent of those surveyed said it is "very important, important or somewhat important" to be able to access the Internet.

Harris Interactive and Intel said the survey was conducted November 18-20. They did not provide a margin of error for the results.
