That number more than doubles when talking about the 18-to-34-year-old crowd, 20 percent of whom said they've employed their phone during the throes of passion.
Harris Interactive conducted the online survey from June 13 to 17, gauging the responses of 2,021 U.
Study respondents confessed to using their phone in common settings like a movie theater (35 percent) or while driving (55 percent), while others throw courtesy to the wind, and take out their phone during a dinner date (33 percent) or at a child's school function (32 percent).
Some even take the term "sexting" quite literally: Nine out of 10 adults admittedly use their smartphone during sex, though Jumio does not specify for what purpose.
The 2013 Mobile Consumer Habits study, conducted online by Harris Interactive for Jumio, aims to shed some light on Americans, but mostly seems to highlight our strange habits.
"People view their smartphones as an extension of themselves, taking them everywhere they go even the most unorthodox places from the shower to their commute, from the dinner table to the bedroom," Marc Barach, Jumio chief marketing and strategy officer, said in a statement.
"And panic sets in when consumers are separated from their devices," he said.
Nearly 30 percent of adults admit to snooping on someone else's mobile phone, he added, "making users aware of the potential violations that happen when we put our phones down." And while 72 percent of adult smartphone owners don't let their device drift further than five feet away at any time, a majority still keep their phone password protected, worried about theft of personal information (65 percent), losing contact with people (58 percent), calls being made on their behalf (39 percent), someone logging into their social profiles (33 percent), and someone using their mobile payment options (26 percent).
Still, much of their usage can be characterized not as guarding, but as simple entertainment.

The latest Mobile Consumer Habits study, released Thursday, sounds vaguely reminiscent of the sordid pages of last month's Cosmopolitan magazine: According to the report, smartphone usage is so prevalent in Americans' daily lives that nearly one in 10 admit to having used their phone during sex.Even more turn to their mobile devices in other unexpected places, like the shower (12 percent) and in various houses of worship (19 percent).
