If you trade stocks, ride motorcycles, have tattoos or have sex more than once a week, you're more prone to damage your Apple iPhone, according to recent research.

According to a recent survey by the gadget insurer SquareTrade, frequent stock traders are the most likely to have an accident with their iPhone. It said traders are 40 percent more likely than other iPhone owners to report damage.

Tattooed iPhone users and motorcycle users are both 25 percent more likely to damage their Apple smartphone than the average iPhone user. And iPhone owners that have sex at least once a week are 15 percent more likely to have an accident, according to the survey.

Other findings:

Big households – 15 percent more likely

Pet owners – 7 percent more likely
