Female Gamers Have More Sex, According To Survey

We have no real insight into the scientific validity of this survey, but I'm going to go ahead and believe it anyway -- Harris Interactive has just released a survey revealing that girls who game have more sex than those who don't. Hubba hubba, etc.

After questioning 2000 women Harris Interactive found that 57% of female gamers admitted to regular sex, whilst only 52% of non gamers would admit to the same thing.

Being perfectly honest, it all seems a bit hokey, especially considering the 'research' was presented alongside a quote from Gamehouse, a flash gaming website whose audience is made up of a majority of women! Sounds like a bit of a publicity stunt but, still, go female gamers!

Congrats on the sex girls!

    Yea, this is a PR stunt.

    she's holding the controller wrong, this ain't gonna work. among other reasons...

      You sure? She is biting her lip.....

      How exactly should a playstation controller be held? Are you suggesting her index fingers should be on the upper shoulder buttons, and her middle fingers should be on the lower ones? I'd agree, since that seems to make sense button-wise, but when I try it myself, I find it rather painful to hold it like that, and it's impossible to get my thumbs to press the face buttons without a fair bit of strain on the finger muscles. It would work if the controller were larger though.

        try holding a controller like that for a period of time. Every gamer knows you when holding a controller you rest your hands on your legs and not have them hanging in the air.

        unless she's playing a game that requires frequent and intense pressing down on the D-pad and the analog sticks aren't required it doesn't look like someone who holds a controller on any type of regular basis.

      Psssh, she just activated her x-ray on Mortal Kombat noob, she's holding it right.

    Why is that girl running towards the camera at high speed in the middle of a field while holding a PS3 controller?

      That's no field. That's the wallpaper of someone who doesn't know how to change it.

    Is the person in the top of the article a girl or a guy dressed up as a girl? Honestly, it looks like either

    GAMING PROMOTES DANGEROUS PROMISCUITY.

      Always carry a condom when playing Mario, you don't know when you are going to lose control and start rooting your neighbour.

    Also what the heck, this is an article done by THE Mark Serrels?

    It's a hit grabbing article with the article title taking things out of context on a Luke Plunkett level, what is happening!!!!

      It's more crowd pleasing than the Skyrim kid killing article, though. :p

      I just thought it was something you guys would like to read/ridicule.

        I honestly clicked this, not for the article, but for the comments. My Plunkett sense was tingling, but boy was my face red when I discovered it was written in a near Incomprehensible Scottish accent.

        Well played, Serrels. Well played.

        Girl gamers have excellent hand-eye co-ordination!

    Notice it doesn't mention male gamers having any sex at all.

      Best comment ever!

    The best thing about this article is the screen cap from The Lonely Island song. I'd say the 'research' is bullshit.

    I bet male gamers have more sex than male non-gamers too.

    <_< Yeah.

    Obviously none of these people play Skyrim.

    I have trouble finding time to breath since the 11th.

      It's going to be difficult to choose between Skyrim and Skyward Sword. I'm not looking forward to that choice.

        Whoever wins, your junk loses.

        This summer, Mark Serrels stars in "Blue balls: The movie"

        I have a skyward sword while I'm playing Skyrim.

    ARCORDING TO THE WORLD, EVERYONE HAS MORE SEX THAN EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!

    but seriously, why do people research this?
    are there just a bunch of people who are like, "I MUST KNOW WHO HAS THE MOST SEX!" ?

      That's where all the federal funding's going, screw stem cell research. :D

    thous damn vibrating controllers.

      This is actually true. I've heard some girls admit to turning on infinite grind in Tony Hawk games and finding a circular fountain or something.

        The mounted gun in the warthog dude ;)

          You still have to hold down the trigger.

            I had a friend who actually used to do exactly this, by rubber banding the controller (I have no idea how this came up in conversation). I once told her about the Tony Hawk 'solution' after she mentioned it, to which she turned to me, looked me dead in the eye, and said "You, good sir, have improved my masturbatory sessions."

            Man, she was a weird one...

    And lesbian sex, too, for us gay female gamers.

      wowsers

    ill believe it when i see it

    Interesting, I'm not sure if I beleive it but anyway, good for them?!

    doesn't matter had snu snu

    Considering a vast majority of people play games these days, im really not all that surprised. It's pretty much saying 'girls have sex'.

    Probably as statistically correct as one of those "gaming causes people to murder" type researches.

      You'll find that 50% of people have an above-average sex life anyway.

    I want death by Snu Snu!

      :D

    i would imagine the person (presumably female) who conducted this research was miffed by some other non-gaming female who rubbed it in that person's face that she was getting more action in the bedroom. Hence...perhaps this report was an act of revenge..i can't really imagine why else a person would want to do research on this...

    by the way, the research isn't causational..well..from what i've read of this article and the link.

    psh. female gamers having more sex is probably true. girls who game are usually not annoying, needy bitches. thus, have happier relationships and happier boyfriends = more sex.

    gaming relationship: "hey honey, I just picked up BF3, can't wait to play with you. though, when you want to play with your mates, I'll happily do something else instead, maybe I'll play super mario 3D."

    regular relationship with a bitch: "WHY ARE YOU PLAYING THAT STUPID GAME? PAY ATTENTION TO ME. I WANT ATTENTION, ALL THE TIME. NO SEX FOR A WEEK BECAUSE I CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW SOMEONE CAN FIND VIDEO GAMES FUN. BITCH BITCH BITCH. PS, I CAN'T COOK OR MAKE SANDWHICHES VERY WELL."

    and yes, all annoying bitches type in caps.

      By god you're right... This is just scary.

    Maybe because good, attractive female gamers are like unicorns and the ratio is skewed heavily in their favour and they have dozens of lonely gamer boys slobbering over their them. Hence they get laid a lot more, and a lot more easily.

    This song goes out to all the non-gaming females;

    Don't forget the non-gaming group probably includes the aged, who I'm guessing don't get it on as frequently as the gaming 20-somthings. I'm not saying the elderly are dead from the waist down, just less active.

      Actually wasn't there a few studies done in the last few years that show the 60+ age bracket getting it on extremely often?

        When I was your age we had to walk 10miles to have sex and smoke pot!

    With MotionPlus, you could theoretically strap your controller to your 'Joystick' and still manage to play Skyward Sword since you wont have to swing your controller over and over to find the right angle.

    It's about the only thing that will get your male appendage any exercise this year.
