Women are hunting for sex online

Good news for men... not such good news for work productivity

Men will no doubt want to sign up for Internet accounts, if a new study is to be believed. The study, published Thursday, found that one in ten of all women Internet users have ended up having sex with someone they first chatted up on the Web.

Commissioned by female Web site newwomanonline.co.uk, the report found a quarter of women online formed a romantic friendship on the Web when they should have been working.

Two thousand women participated in the Women and the Web Survey 2000 in over eight TV regions including London, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, making it the biggest survey to date of women's feelings towards the Web.
