Shopping Is The New Porn Addiction?

The Daily Mail has a story today about how some women think about shopping more than they think about sex, which left us a bit flabbergasted. In a survey of almost 800 British women, three-quarters of them thinking about shopping every minute. Half of them said they preferred shopping to even spending time with their partner, and about the same amount said they hide their spending from their partner. It says something disturbing about the level to which the consumption of goods has become so deeply ingrained into our individual and collective psyches that it trumps even biological urges like sex and companionship. Given that I'm a blogger, I think I'll stick to thinking about sex all the time. It's way cheaper. [Daily Mail]
