So gamers, how much sex are you guys and gals having? Hmm? I don’t mean having a trip to Palmdale gentlemen, because I get the feeling that gamers would not only be top of the list but probably a good few thousand percent above the next highest. Also, what isn’t included is sex within games – so if you’ve been getting jiggy “Liara style” in Mass Effect that doesn’t count either.
Well, a UK money saving website – VoucherCodesPro – has been conducting some ongoing research into stereotypes, according to a post on TechMash.co.uk and the results are quite surprising. 2,357 UK based women, aged over 18 who stated that they were all in relationships for the past year were surveyed and asked about their love lives and their partners. Firstly, they were asked about how they would describe their partner and the results were the following:
- 25% – Gym Goer
- 21% – Hipster
- 17% – Gamer
- 12% – Rocker
- 9% – Dad
- 7% – Nerdy
- 6% – Trend-Setter
- 3% – Chav
Just for some context, a “Chav” is like a mix between a gangbanger, a hick and trailer trash – but this is very basic. So far so good though, although I would sit in 4 of those categories (Gamer, Rocker, Dad and Nerdy) but I digress.
The next part of the survey was about how often these ladies engaged in the physical act of love with their partners, the results here are what really matters in-so-far as this article and the survey goes, and here are the results:
- Gamer – 6 times a week
- Hipster – 4 times a week
- Chav – 4 times a week
- Trend-setter – 3 times a week
- Nerdy – 3 times a week
- Rocker – 2 times a week
- Gym goer – once a week
- Dad – once a fortnight
That’s right you (at least British) gamers, you are getting your thing on 6 times a week – and that’s on average! That’s incredible you gamer studs you, this implies that a lot of you are out there getting it on at least once a day, probably more so than that!
What are you people doing? Defeat a difficult boss in Dark Souls III? Time to stuff the muffin. Score an epic goal in FIFA 17? Time to burp the worm in the mole hole. Get yourself a great kill/death ratio in Battlefield 1? Time to spear the bearded clam. You get my point but damn people, do you even have time to play enough games to be described as gamers?
Not only this though, but 59% of you gamer lovers put your partners needs before your own, which probably helps to contribute to the high level of nookie being engaged in (whereas “trend-setters” were the most selfish with just 16% being selfless lovers).
But there you go, one stereotype absolutely smashed – well at least with British gamers – the stereotype that gamers are awkward, reclusive and also very much alone. This is clearly not the case and George Charles from VoucherCodesPro.co.uk said:
“People usually assume that gamers are so busy playing games that they don’t have time for much else but this study has definitely proven this is just not the case. Many would assume macho gym goers would be constantly proving that they are ready to go in the bedroom but it really does go to show that you shouldn’t make snap judgements about people!”
This is completely true as we all should know by now. But ladies, if you’re after a man who can satisfy your needs on a regular basis and puts you first, you’d better find yourself a gamer – but make sure they’re British just to be safe. Anyway, since I’m a British gamer I’m off to go ride the skin train into tuna town, later y’all!
