11 percent of people shop online naked, survey says


He’s shopping. What do you think he’s doing?

Online shopping is like reading the news on television.

You don’t actually have to have your trousers on. There’s not even a compunction to wear underclothing.

This is the ultimate in capitalist freedom.

How many people, though, will actually admit not only that they shop online in the nude, but they actually like doing it?

Well, according to a survey commissioned by titillators at PayPal, there are several stages of risque online shopping behavior.

As CNBC reports, 33 percent cheerily admitted that they clutch their iPads and laptops and shop away in their pajamas. It’s unclear how many people were surveyed and what time of day or night they might have been asked the questions.

We must posit, therefore, that this naked 11 percent might be clothes shoppers. Something within them makes them believe that they could more readily try on clothes through their computer or phone (see video above) if they are already disrobed.

One might even extrapolate that all of these 11 percent might be included in the 15 percent who like a drink while they’re browsing for online items.

In essence, therefore, there may be a certain lifestyle segment in the US that drinks and takes its clothes off, then lies on the sofa or in the bath (or elsewhere), in order to have the perfect online retail experience.
