Fourteen percent of the world’s cell phone users report that they have stopped in the middle of a sex act to answer a ringing wireless device.Click-through on the headline to go all the way through their many fascinating findings on this pressing issue; registration required if you’re not an already identified reader of Ad Age.

The highest percentage was found in Germany and Spain, where 22% of users interrupted sex to answer their cell phones; the lowest was in Italy, where only 7% reported doing so. In the U.S., 15% say they practice cell phone interruptus.
