When it comes to love and affection smartphones play an integral part in our relationships. BUT what about when it comes to sex? Research by Durham University found that 40% answered their phones during sex. Yep, that's right, DURING the deed. It's time we switched off and enjoyed sex once and for all. Here are 10 ways your phone is getting in the way of your orgasm...

Does your smartphone run your sex life? Can't leave your messages unanswered for longer that 5 minutes? Tired of watching your man catch up on the sports highlights in bed?

We know exactly what you mean. In fact, recent findings by Durham University found that although our smartphones help form and develop romantic relationships, they're also a HUGE burden; with couples delaying, hurrying, and neglecting sex!

No wonder our sex lives aren't up to par. Girls, it's time we faced reality. Here are some ways your smartphone could be ruining your sex life and your relationship...

1. Instead of leaning over to kiss your beau first thing in the a.m. , you turn your phone on...

...leaving the potential for an explosive morning sex sesh Out. Of. The. Question.

Sexpert and founder of Jo Divine, Samantha Evans says, "We're all guilty of doing this. By the time you’ve checked your emails, texts, Facebook account, news and weather reports, it’s time to get up and ready for the day, leaving no time for great early morning sex".

Leave your phone off until you've left the house, that way you'll give your libido all the attention it wants.

2. Texts are misunderstood

Sure, phones can allow us to show love and affection in different ways, but what about when things get mistaken and misunderstood? It happens more often than we realize! We interpret messages in so many different ways. The best type of communication? In the flesh.

3. Sex is rushed to reconnect...

Big no-no. Whether it's you or your man who's desperate to reply to their messages or notifications, one of you is bound to feel rejected and upset. If you're getting intimate with your partner, give them everything you've got.

4. Text messages, emails and comments are an instant turn off.

"Looking at your phone can make you feel stressed or angry, which isn’t the best way to start the day. Whereas having early morning sex will make you feel great and bursting with energy to carry you through, as well as giving you something to smile about.

"​You never know, there may be a repeat performance later that evening, too!", says Samantha. De-prioritize your phone. Your relationship comes first.

5. Answering the phone DURING sex.

Yep, it's true. Recent studies have found that people have indeed picked up the phone during sex. Goodbye romance!

6. It can make you feel neglected and insecure. (Frustration doesn't even do it justice.)

The times when you slip something sexy on but he doesn't notice because he's too distracted on Candy Crush. The rage is real. [Insert argument here.]

7. Facebook stalking at 1 a.m.

Time to quit stalking our ex boyfriends and start living in the moment. Likewise for your man.

Samantha suggests implementing a “no gadgets after 10 p.m.” rule. She says, "Unless you're texting a raunchy photo of yourself in sexy lingerie or he's downloaded something naughty on his laptop for you both to watch, turn off all your gadgets and spend time snuggling up in bed with your partner, talking and stroking each other.

Trust us. The work stress will ease and so will that dry spell!

8. Cheating becomes all too easy...

Whether it's you or your man misbehaving, when it comes to our smartphones, some people just can't seem to help themselves.

Suddenly we don't like our phones anymore.

9. Communication sucks - you don't talk anymore.

Ever feel like you're two strangers in bed? Couples claim that their phones give them talking points, but in fact, you're just neglecting the real life conversation you SHOULD be having. Speak up.

10. You watch funny cat videos, he watches the sports highlights...

Ladies, there's only ONE thing that's acceptable when it comes to watching videos on your phone. That is PORN.

A 2011 study found that couples who watched porn together had a higher level of sexual satisfaction. "Download some porn on your laptop or erotic novels onto your Kindle, play a sexy playlist on your iPod or invest in a good quality sex toy," says Samantha. Those are the only exceptions you're getting.

Want an amazing sex life? Here's how...
