Seventy-five percent of Americans have used their cell phones while they're on the toilet. Twenty-five percent of Americans said they won't visit the restroom without their cell phone. Sixty-three percent have answered the phone; 41 percent have called someone else; and 38 percent surfed the Internet, all while sitting on the porcelain throne.
These numbers, as reported by the New York Times, came from a survey of 1,000 people by marketing agency 11mark.
"The writing is on the stall," said 11mark principal Nicole Burdette. "This study confirms what we all know—that the last private place is no longer private."
According to the survey, younger adults are more likely than older adults to use the phone while on the toilet.
Eighty-seven percent of Android phone users, 84 percent of Blackberry users and 77 percent of iPhone users have used their phone while in the restroom.
