Gamers Have More Sex Than Gym Buffs!
March 8, 2018
Hitting the gym is great. Sure, finding the motivation can be difficult, but once you get there you’ll feel amazing after your workout. That said, you can do too much exercise. When you want a break you might reach for your controller and play some of your favourite video game.
Gamers don’t have the greatest reputation among people. We are seen as anti-social, and there have been plenty of suggestions throughout the years that playing certain videos games can make you violent. However, a recent study has shown that gamers might actually have it better than gym buffs in one area… sex.
What is a gamer?
Most people tend to believe that a gamer is a young male who is socially awkward and incredibly lazy. They’ll imagine the kind of kids who might save their money to buy the latest COD game. Except there have been studies to show that actually, the average age of a gamer is 31 years old. This same study shows that 48% of gamers are women.
I’ll admit right here, right now, that I am a gamer. In fact, I was a gamer long before I showed any interest in hitting the gym. I know how satisfying it can be to 100% a game, and how great it feels to win a round for your team when playing competitively online. My first ace in Siege with Valkyrie? I didn’t care that we lost the rest of the match because I felt I’d done well.
But gamers are seen as lazy and socially awkward, because you aren’t interacting face to face and you are sitting to spend hours on a game. If you play an RPG, you’ll easily invest 100 hours minimum into exploring the story, and you might not get the chance to talk to people doing it. So the general public starts to believe that gamers have awful sex lives.
Gamer vs. gym goer
If you ask the vast majority of the people, they’ll tell you that a gym buff will be having more sex than a gamer. However, it seems that this just isn’t the case. In fact, gamers have more sex than those hitting the gym every day.
In this study, they spoke to 2,300 women in the UK over the age of 18. They focused on their sex lives with a partner they’ve been dating for a minimum of a year, wanting to know just how many times people have been having sex.
It turns out that gamers are getting it on more than anyone else, at around six times a week. Gym goers were a lot further down the list, fucking just once a week. In between there were rockers (twice a week), trend-setters (three times a week), and hipsters (four times a week). Still, no-one came close to the six times of gamers.
Lately, people have been talking about one particular ‘agony aunt’ style column, where one man asks why his partner masturbates after sex. For many of us the answer is obvious, that she wants to orgasm. It highlights just how important sexual satisfaction is in the bedroom, especially in relationships.
Another interesting bit of information we can learn from this study is where our priorities are with our partner. It seems that gamers place a higher priority on their partner’s pleasure, with 59% putting their girlfriends’ needs before their own. They want to make them feel good, and we imagine that the hand-eye coordination gaming requires helps a lot to make them feel amazing.
On the other hand, it seems that the trend-setters aren’t as selfless. In fact, just 16% of them said that they put their partner first. So if you are hoping to have a good time in the bedroom and get more sex, it might be worth turning to a gamer.
Enjoying gamer sex
Okay, so this is only a small scale study. 2,000 isn’t a lot, and it might just be that the gamers involved in this study happen to be better in bed and enjoy having more sex. However, there are a few ways that you can enjoy gamer sex if that is the kind of thing that you’d like to do.
If they aren’t into competitive gaming, you can always try the distraction technique. This is something I have done before and it is a lot of fun. While one of you plays a game, the other will do whatever they can to distract them. The only condition is that you can’t block the screen. It is a lot of fun, especially for a twist on teasing.
Eager to spice things up with some role play? You could always add some cosplay to the mix. There are plenty of sexy game characters you can create costumes for. Juliet Starling from Lollipop Chainsaw might be fun for that kinky cheerleader fantasy you’ve always wanted to try out! If you want to keep things simple you could also go for Lara Croft… just make sure you don’t get locked in a freezer.
Do you think it is true?
The results of the study have caused a lot of scepticism. People aren’t ready to believe it. They feel that there must be something we are missing… how can gamers be having more sex than people who hit the gym a lot?
Do you think that it is true, and is it important? Are you a gamer getting a lot of sex? We’d love to hear from you, so let us know what you think. Leave a comment in the box below and tell us which video game character you think would be the sexiest for a kinky role play.

In her spare time, Lara keeps herself active by going running, and is something of a film buff. She also loves to go travelling.
