HEADLINE: Survey Exposes Attitudes on Online Poker, Sex and the President; Survey Reveals Americans Would Abstain From Sex for One Year for a $2.3M Online Poker Jackpot


What would it take for you to give up sex for one full calendar year? According to a recent national survey commissioned by, more than half of Americans would say adios to sex for one year in exchange for winning an average $2.3 million in a game of online poker.

Conducted by StrategyOne, an independent public opinion research firm, on behalf of, the scientific nationwide survey of American adults also found that men are more likely than women to exchange sex for super-sized online poker winnings, with 61 percent of adult males going on a year-long sexual furlough versus only 47 percent of women. Another seventeen percent indicated that they would need to win between $1 and $50,000 in online winnings to give up sex for a full year.

When it came to the pot needed to win, size mattered to men. The average cash amount men cited they would require to live sex-free for 365 days was $2.1 million; women were willing to sleep solo for a lesser $1.9 million.

The survey also asked respondents who they would most want to ante up with in a game of online poker. Americans selected President George W. Bush as their most-preferred celebrity poker competitor, followed closely by Oprah Winfrey and Bill Clinton. Oprah was also the favorite celebrity among women and hotel heiress Paris Hilton was the celebrity of choice among Gen-Y respondents, easily beating out the President, Donald Trump, Martha Stewart, among other high-profile celebrities.

The nationwide telephone survey of American adults 18 years of age and older held a margin-of-error of +/- 3.0 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.
