There's no shortage of studies showing the many things for which women would be willing to give up sex.

Whether its a perfect body, chocolate, or even Internet access, the list seems surprisingly long.

Now, a new study has revealed that 57 percent of German women would rather give up sex for a year rather than be unable to watch television for the same time period, German newspaper, The Local reports.

On the contrary, nearly 62 percent of German men surveyed by the Hamburg-based Foundation for Future Studies said they'd choose sex over television.
