Americans Would Abstain From Sex for One Year for a $2.3M Online Poker Jackpot

Since this survey was published on PRNewswire and was conducted by a so-called "independent public opinion research firm" (which also happens to be a marketing communications company) on the behalf of PokerStars.Com, I would take the ah, results, with a full salt shaker. But it is amusing.

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.
Yeah, right. Bush, Clinton, and Oprah are who I'm looking for at my table. Me, I'd prefer Dylan, Wil Wheaton, and Shana Hiatt.
