Apart from faux sex, the majority of boys and girls said they had at least flirted online, according to the report.

Yet there's a big caveat: the study isn't scientific and it's yet to be confirmed. Drudge said the survey was commissioned by Royal KPN NV, the Netherlands' largest Internet provider. Stay tuned.
