Facebook and sex are two things people seem to like a lot. In fact we get a lot of surveys here at Mashable about these two topics. Just this week, a new study by the University of Canterbury found that having sex is the most enjoyable human activity — even more than checking Facebook.

Before you say, ”of course, that’s so obvious” there’s also this study from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business which determined that checking social media websites like Facebook or Twitter is a temptation that’s really hard to resist.

It becomes addicting, kind of like cigarettes. The study’s leads lead author points to social media’s high availability as a possible reason, meaning engaging in a tweet or Facebook post doesn’t take much effort. Sex, on the other hand, well, you might have to work harder for that.
