Which would you give up for a year, your Amazon account or sex? Millennials that use Amazon know the answer. Nearly half would rather keep their Amazon account, according to a new report from Business Insider.
Faced with choosing between giving up sex or giving up Amazon, 44 percent of millennials would drop sex for their Amazon accounts. Likewise, 77 percent would give up alcohol over Amazon. Both statistics come from a survey conducted by the Max Borges Agency, which fielded responses from 1,108 Amazon shoppers aged 18 to 34 who purchased some form of consumer tech in the last year.
It’s not surprising that Amazon shoppers would give up sex for a year if they could spare their Amazon orders. If you’re already shopping with Amazon, chances are you’re buying a lot more than a single piece of consumer tech and calling it a day.
Nonetheless, Twitter has some questions.
WT actual F, who in the hell thought up that damn question? https://t.co/YBbRIfsVAv— Dominic Edmunds (@DominicEdmunds) December 6, 2018
A) Why is this an article? B) Ask them if they’d quit jerking it, I guarantee the answer is no. “Almost half of millennials say they'd rather give up sex than quit Amazon for a year, according to a new survey” https://t.co/KGqDwcs4SM @businessinsider #fakenews— Elijah Hoffman (@_elijahj) December 6, 2018

Some didn’t believe it.
They are kidding😜— Martin Varsavsky (@martinvars) December 6, 2018
90% of millenials are just trolling when they answer questions so account for that.— el Jefe (@StraightUpJeff) December 6, 2018
Others weren’t that surprised.
Nothing seems to measure up to Prime— Moira Studio (@MoiraStudio) December 6, 2018
because they already not having sex anyway— The Architect (@rthiago) December 6, 2018
Either way, millennials really are the lamest generation.
- Amazon Alexa is the home assistant you never knew you needed
- What is pansexuality? A queer woman opens up about her sexuality
- How to see all the people who unfriended you on Facebook
In other news, millennials aren’t having nearly as much sex as past generations. Clearly, Amazon Prime is to blame.
