Tell us: how does your smartphone factor into your sex life?

Tell us: how does your smartphone factor into your sex life?

Here at Mobile Nations we like to think of ourselves as being real tech for real people. And we know that in addition to owning smartphones, real people go on dates, send each other photos, have sex, and all sorts of other stuff. The smartphone is playing a greater and greater role in all of that, so we wanted to know just how you are using your smartphone to get it on.

We're not afraid to ask the prickly questions. Even that leads to us finding out you're into prickly things (to each their own).

Now, I know where your brain is going, and we're not suggesting that you engage in sexy times with your smartphone (that's weird and a potential trip to the ER), but we know that plenty of you use your smartphone to facilitate said sexy times. So we've put together this little survey that delves into how you use your smartphone in kinky and not so kinky ways

We want you to be fully honest with us, and to have some fun. After all, there's nothing at stake here. Except for maybe your dignity. So hit the link below and, uh, get it on.

Strange question! None of your business. You drink while you write?

spcdog says:

Seriously... Derek, did you previously work for Google? Talk about "getting right up to the creepy line". :P

toyotast165 says:

The low light camera has its benefits ;-)

michail71 says:

Which is why I have to keep the auto skydrive backup off.  Cameras need to have a "private session" mode.

pookyjoralyn says:

I wonder which position the two Lumias are trying to do :D

Xanderone says:

Lol. Stop imagining things.

pookyjoralyn says:

I know nothing about it, that's why i'm wondering :3

Aman2901 says:

LLLP.. Ladies Love Lumia phones. #thatisall

SomeGuy11 says:

What sex life?

KQ17 says:

This hahaha

EXkurogane says:

I logged in just to respond lol (usually lazy to comment). 

What sex life? Dont you (at least) fap to porn on your phone (if you're still single)? =P

Dont forget the low light capabilities of Nokia's cameras has its advantages in a dark bedroom. 

Aman2901 says:

+1 nokia thinks about their customers needs..vry well

From My Lumia 929

ahmadcrofton says:

1) People watch porn on it

Nik Rolls says:

Yeah, that's what the larger screen, PureView HD, 4G and Quad-Core processors are for :P

Yeah, the fun is too small on my 920. :'(

Aman2901 says:

Nic one

From My Lumia 929

At least your phone isn't a Lumia 521. Talk about small☹

xratola says:

Porn industries like this

NIST says:

Mia Malkova, Eva Angelina, Tori Black, Tory Lane, Brandi Love........Damn I think I just made a case for needing a 1520

micallan_17 says:

Tafsern says:

Jynx Maze, Roxy Raye...nice girls :D

Lokiwp says:

Aman2901 says:

L0gic Bom8 says:

Aman2901 says:

Yeah...need one too...immediately...

From My Lumia 929

theonedunn says:

Only reason for in private browsing. Need for WP.

willied says:

UC Browser has it.

It would be nice to have it built into IE in WP8.1, though.

Miti 1982 says:

Some watch, others make

I use it for school, email, time passer,communication and for news.

Also videos of almost everything and music that's hip-hop/rap

micallan_17 says:

School and porn

Gilceleb says:

Xbox music pass to listen group like Linkin Park or other rock/metal oriented. A sure way to avoid hip-hop and rap that borrow me.

jibreezy1982 says:

Linkin park is alt rock as well as "rap" rock! Know you music before you diss hip hop..

RaRa85 says:

That is your sex life?:P

That's kinda sad...

No read my comment towards the bottom. Didn't read the article at first.

markdotinc says:

Or, impressive.

ahmadcrofton says:

2) with the sup'd up camera, people stalk people and take pics

giorgio h says:

Anyobe knows good porn sites? I like ebony porn!

aehhaeh says:

Yeah, that L1520 can cause some issues on occassion.

SamiSaifDine says:

Hhhhh what did you mean lool

LucasLumia says:

Yeah, that Lumia 1520 is to big for most people ;)

HarkAtYou says:

Now ive seen and used a hell of a lot in my time, all different shapes, sizes, colours and countries of origin, and I've not found one too big, the Lumia 1520 is good enough :)

What? Is this WPcentral or teenager-girl weakly magazine?

It's both, actually. And I'm faaaaaaaaabulous.

xRiceyx says:

Hahaha Rubino you utter card you :D

Thanks for aaasking!

hs k says:

Shouldn't that be Assking LOL?

Rockartisten says:

Fndlumia says:

You go girlfriend oh snap

anmol_gamer says:

Lol... I think they were in a sexy mood while writing the article. :P

micallan_17 says:

Aman2901 says:

*weekly magazine

From My Lumia 929

thegromble says:

My girlfriend just complains that I'm on mine too much. That's about the extent of its influence on my sex life.

Aman2901 says:

Only relevent ansa to this post +1

From My Lumia 929

leokime94 says:

Thanks to Nokia's software I can take and send photos of my "jewel" and it appears more big!! Thanks Nokia! :D

IceDree says:

Lol Whizwireless

Capsloc says:

You only have one jewel? Jewels = balls

Jack Larson1 says:

Read Gilgamesh. ;)

Ed Boland says:

Remember you can zoom after ;)

leokime94 says:

Yes... I know... :(

juanitoriv says:

I liked the survey. LOVE IT!!!

The camera comes in handy for the occasional pic/video. It's much more manageable than a video camera on a tripod. Lol

lubbalots says:

Damb!!! That's honesty! Lolzzz!

Wael Hasno says:

Well.. I love this place.

Set it to vibrate and hand it to the missus ;)

erzhik says:

Lets just say I touch my Lumia more often in bed than I touch my girlfriend.

lubbalots says:

That's the sad part. Lolz! "wait honey, let check wpcentral news quick!"

erzhik says:

That's the last thing I do before falling asleep and first thing I do when I wake up. Says alot about my sex life.

lubbalots says:

The Misses, "what! That's it! We're done!" But honey, its just a quick check to see if Dan has any news on the new Lumia!

Mista_Calais says:

Lol gold. Made me laugh.

Why not both at the same time?

Aman2901 says:

It gets sticky then..

From My Lumia 929

Press. Record. Repeat.

Selfie13 says:

This ought to be interesting, but yet very funny ;-)

Her: I wish I was your phone.
Me: Why?
Her: Because you're on that more than you're on me.

Winnabe says:

Hah! I would love for a woman to say that to me. :D

My wife tells me that all the time she always says I touch my phone more than her. LOL

Xanderone says:

Lol. That's crazy dude.

ajvanbreen says:

I suppose if I were single I could use Scruff to arrange for an assignation.  Otherwise not at all, unless texting back and forth with the boyfriend counts.

omg the article image. XD

xRiceyx says:

Whatsapp and 6snap get used a lot!

WilsonBlaze says:

Hmmm, I'm not sure phones get anyone in the developed world sex. Its no longer a Symbol of success much like the $600+ iPhone that hit the scene in 2007. We generally think everyone pays $200 or less for their phones which is very attainable

k0de says:

I use it to satisfied my sex appetite all the time. Its real the wife does need to know. For real.

cuwe says:

3) Record HD porn videos with it.

The survey was too weird,,,I couldn't even finish READING the questions
I think I might quit this, forever?!

Hey everyone, ↑ this person is weirded out by sex and bewbs!

Hahaha thanks I needed that!

lubbalots says:

What questions do you expect? How about this one, "do you make love to your Lumia?"

micallan_17 says:

i didn't find it weird, weird would have been, how often do you have sex with your Lumia?

mrappbrain says:

The scientific and sacred process by which an organism produces more of its own kind :P

Then what's this condom stuff? I'm so confused. And where do I put my thing into?

smogg9 says:

i put it on vibrate mode and just let it drown....  

Jas00555 says:

I show ladies my 1520 and when they say "oh, that's so big" I tell them, "I got another 6 inches to show you" and then we have sex.

*goes to store to buy the 1520

exkerZ says:

Best... Pick... Up... Line... Ever...

Micah Dawson says:

Only another 6? I would be disappointed lol

Aman2901 says: that small for u??

From My Lumia 929

Well 6 seems a bit small :)

JerqFase says:

I was using the led to check out my sexy-time partner last night. Lights in room are too bright, but the LED was perfect mood lighting. FYI, she had a great body as it turned out.

Lumia 1020.

This help?

kc77 says:

HAHAHA! The picture for the article shows two Lumias gettin' it on ;P Did you have to explain the set up of the picture to anyone before hand? That could have been awkward.

micallan_17 says:

it's very funny :D

sahib lopez says:

I think its called Lumia style ;)

tim3804 says:

What are good dating apps on wp

It doesn't really...i lie.. It just gets the ball rolling thru texting, once the texting reaches a point, "the kick is good"

Dadstar0410 says:

I have a Windows Phone. Thus ends my sex life.

lubbalots says:

Gets worse with every new Nokia device...

eatingjimmy says:

I'm just here to chuckle at the way the phones are posed in the article photo. :P

ArchieVellie says:

Its great for #vineafterdark upload

paramsingh says:

During the era of feature phones it was very difficult to watch porn on the tube with all 30 members from my office (small screen and terrible browser) thanks to smartphone it's a piece of cake to order dominoes

exkerZ says:

This was funny

JoRdaNeK says:

With 41mp of low light technology built into such a compact device, it has proven very useful in recording my special moments with blissfully unaware young ladies on occasion :P

Send it to me? JK

JoRdaNeK says:

do Lumias have DFC as well as NFC (distant field communication) :P

Luminatic says:

You're creepy. I hope one father or strong older brother finds out.

JoRdaNeK says:

Finds out that their daughter is a lunatic in the bedroom? Anyway, the only girls i record give me consent i swear, it simply sounded funny the other way

Luminatic says:

Well if its with their consent then I take my reply back :-)

CJ Thunder says:

Apps like sex roulette keeps thing fun.

LMFAO... I'm a prude when it comes to my smartphone. I would NEVER sext and all I do is text with my boyfriend on a nightly basis, but no text sex, just normal conversations, "I love you" and goodnight.

lubbalots says:

"Honey, would you please get off Facebook!" I'm shriveling up!"

Mista_Calais says:

Some really personal questions but lol.

chad08er says:

What sex life?I'm on here all the time,lol!

micallan_17 says:

my Answer: Brazzers, Mofos, RedTube, PornHub

Don't some require money? Ain't paying...

micallan_17 says:

the piratebay, yeah they do Red and hub don't, at least to watch haha

JoRdaNeK says:

Xhamster is a personal fave and xnxx

micallan_17 says:

Pornhub is really good but i haven't been on xhamster lol

Dante X says:

Tons of videos and photos of my GF dressed as a sexy japanese Schoolgirl ;)

QwarkDreams says:

What the fuck? What kind of question is this? You guys can't be serious!

DVELOPinc says:

I'd like to find out how in the world the idea for this post came from. I assume someone was messing with his phone and significant other wasn't happy and wound up in a debate.

TY for some of those questions, though. Didn't realize the other half was behind me watching and I got a few WTH slaps, lol.

I'm married..... what's a sex life?

Darren Walsh says:

Doing the dishes!!!

How in the world a smartphone would help in a sexlife? Its a phone not Viagra.

DJCBS says:

Sorry but whenever I go to bed with my girlfriend, the phones flies across the room. Luckily I have a Nokia so, worse can scenario, I end up breaking some additional furniture with it.

micallan_17 says:

from the recent survey I was going through each Mobile Nations Site and found that BB users where kind of offended, there were lots of "Non of your business comments" iOS users seem not to be interested, Android and WP (mostly WP :P) users rock.

London Jr says:

speaking of sex, Lumia needs one more camera to make it complete... Nokia Night Vision... for all those late night encounters...

My HTC 8X is a hindrance to any sex life. It's constantly rebooting and driving me crazy, and what woman wants to be with a crazy guy who yells at his phone?

Thank God I can upgrade with AT&T in 2 weeks. I'm hoping the Lumia 1520 drives chicks wild! ;) Of course if it doesn't at least I'll have a 6" HD screen so porn is crystal clear

Jack Larson1 says:

+relationship insurance xD

You've gotta be fucking kidding me.

In all seriousness, its involved a lot. To be blunt .. 30 years old here. Can't imagine where id be without Facebook and a cellphone when it comes to "getting laid". People like to dismiss facebook as self indulgent, but I think any type of social networking (especially real life friends) is bound to increase your odds of finding love, or just having fun. Reals

sayonical says:

Hookups. Hookups. Hookups.

Bgrubb says:

Well it's official I've seen it all! But sine your asking the low light video quality does need an update on my 1520.

IceDree says:

I didn't know that such a thing as "Ashley Madison" does exist, I was under the impression that its a random celebrity.

Anyways , you guys must publish the dirty details of this survey . Lol

micallan_17 says:

Yes i was about to ask that too

Prod1gyHero says:

One of the best surveys yet ;)

sicnus says:

I set it to vibrate...

Flagz says:

Songza for sexy music, and the Moodlight app. Really well for creating a hot mood.

dalydose says:

* I do have some nice, nighttime music playlists, to set the mood.
* I use an OK Cupid (3rd Party) app to find dates
* I use Big Oven for recipes when I have a lady over for dinner
* I've always wanted to fire up YouTube to play the video for "I Just Had Sex" by Lonely Island, but common sense prevails.
* I used to have a Kama Sutra app, but they pulled it, changed the name and made people re-purchase it. I guess they added a new way to screw us.
* I have a "Group" in the People Hub for women who are in rotation.
* I use the alarm to fake an appointment in the morning, so they can start that walk of shame bright and early, before my neighbors see what could be a tragic, beer goggles mistake.

micallan_17 says:

Man you posted the most funny comment tonight, kudos :D

Aman2901 says:

Best comment I hav seen whole week...

From My Lumia 929

billiam149 says:

Lmao. I come from blackberry, I've had 18 blackberries this is my 1st windowsphone. Guys with blackberries were always and will always be hot to me. Anything else not so much. I guess all I use my smartphone for is sexy talk with my boyfriend or for porn.

Judge a book by its phone? :-/

Vmac71 says:

Six inches may not seem like a lot to some, but once a woman gets it in her hand, she then complains about it's too big. So, I guess size does indeed matter after all. Then again, what woman can resist that full HD. ;)


She : Let's have phone sex.
He : But, I can't.
She : Why, what's the problem?
He : I think 3.5 mm isn't enough.

I see what you did there. :P

marky_yo says:

1520=porn=HD=cecetion scars=happiness!!

pookyjoralyn says:

we WP-ers are getting rather porny now ;) ;)

Jack Janik says:

I don't have a girlfriend..

It doesn't influence my sex life but I do use it relating to music, pics, video, sextn, ph sex, and some apps. No different than it was when I was a teenage n didn't have a cellphone expect I used paper, books, landline, and disposable cameras

Bill Kite says:

I love it! Needs a MUCH BIGGER port though...;-)

Pic or it didn't happen. Preferably with a 1020.

Rockartisten says:

Kessler..? do you need some help?

Are you offering a hand or both?


LSDigital says:

LOL that's too good to be bad :p

deru1ke says:

i used to hide porn in file manager.but now....and android got app locker to lock 'certain apps'..but now...

Jeyrus says:

wtf mobile nations. You're one big troll.

gr8nico says:

More than a mouthful is a waste ;) Well... Only if you have big as mine... (1520 I'm talking about) :)

JoseCortesP says:

Well, my phone didn't help: my sex life was inexistent before, it still inexistent now

mango.lover says:

Not gonna lie, I am gay and from time to time I use hookup apps like Adam4Adam and Grindr (if it ever comes to WP).

andresalviar says:

that's right, Grindr should really come to WP, I mean, it's a great App to find hot guys jaja.

Garneth says:

Grindr is on WP! Use Meet'm

There's a reason I don't tell anyone about my sex life: I don't have one.

Misterhamster try xhamster :)

mdram says:

Lumia jungle fever!!

It's a valid question! Back in the times of my youth the land line or phone booth were the only non physical or visual means of communication with the opposite sex. My housemate has just been texting some Polish bird all night he meet on the internet, on his phone! She's just come around and both gone straight upstairs. Like it or not, mobile phones have changed and become part of morden day sex lives.

I'm too young for this stuff, for now.

Me: *reading this article
Me: *Grounded...

Tried to take the survey, was too young. :'(

I'm in high school and go to party's show them my 1020 picture capability, tell them to get naked. Fuck them, leave and in case daddy comes home I wake up at 4am leave. Then do it all over again. And if her mom finds out I fuck her to.

I'm in high school too, but I'm not as messed up as you...

Hey YOLO! And besides and know everyone wherever I go.(except the parents)

Much punctuation error
So yolo
