The Week contest: No fooling around
Last week's question: Our culture is more sexualized than ever, but new research has found that Americans are having sex significantly less often than they did in the 1990s — perhaps because we're so distracted by our digital devices. What would be a suitable sociological or medical term to describe this phenomenon?
