Have you been feeling dissatisfied with your sex life of late? Your smartphone may be to blame, suggests a study.

People are more likely to be seduced by gadgets than by their partners, a research from Durham University says.

The study involved detailed interviews with 15 couples around Britain, 40% of whom confessed to delaying sex to use their smartphones or tablets, Daily Mail reported.

Others revealed they had "raced through sex" in order to check their social media notifications or respond to messages.

One third of participants admitted to interrupting sex to answer incoming calls.

The study also revealed over a quarter of the couples had used their gadgets to film their sexual encounters, while 40% had clicked pictures.

Mark McCormack, who carried out the interviews, said taking gadgets into the bedroom has "potentially serious costs to relationships".

Couples keen to know how their smartphones could make their sex lives more exciting were surprised to learn the answer is the switch off key.
