Gamers Have Sex More Often!

It’s official – women who play video games have sex more often! Gametart, the UK’s largest online games rental company, carried out the survey throughout January to see how the recent influx of the likes of Pink PSPs and DS Lites would affect gamers’ sex lives across the country.

The results were surprising.

Of our sample of 200 women, those who played video games on average had sex 4.3 times a week while those who didn’t play games only had sex just 3.2 times a week.

Perhaps even more promising for gamers is the fact that many of the women that we interviewed who have only recently started playing games said that they now have sex more often than before.

And what were the AGES of these women and the ages of their partners? That alone could explain the more sex thing than just the games alone. I never take these studies at face value because most of the time they are only geared to create headlines. Unfortunately.

Two things, that is a pretty small sample size, and those sex numbers are huge! They must have snagged a few, likely young, women with an atypical appetite for the horizntal hokie pokie. On average more than 3-4 times a week for the entire sample group!? Wow....

Guys don't need to get their gals gamming, they need to tap into this sample group.

Edit: In responce to incynr8, I don't think age group alone can account for that much sex. A sustained 3-4 times a week would be doing pretty damn good even for an average 18-20 year old.

Hmmm, the company's name is Game TART? And they did the study in January, which is traditionally a much colder "let's keep warm" month.

Yeah, and they have not been in their relationships very long either.

LOL I find that it does not stay steady. Some periods of time… WOW, and other are “not now”.
