New Survey Says Geeks Make the Best Lovers

image

According to a survey from a specialist PlayStation 3 site, four out of five geeks placed their partner's wishes above their own.

This particular study was performed by the same website that released the earlier "Games are better than Sex" survey, so we already know some of the participants involved have other things on their mind.

Of the 2,084 Brits involved, (almost half were female) the main question asked was: "During sex, do you consider your partner's sexual needs above your own?"

At this the "geeks" (read: IT workers) scored a massive 82%, double the score of fitness workers.

The survey wasn't exactly scientific, however. Given the audience likely to peruse a PS3-specific site, it's fair to assume the respondents skewed more toward the "geek" end of the spectrum. In an even more damning blow for the survey, only people in a stable relationship could vote.

This sort of leaves it as four out of five British PS3 owners that have sex and work in the IT industry are more interested in getting their partner excited than their own stimulation. That may explain comments from the earlier survey such as "partner being hard to please" though.

Well, judging from the source, I'd say this outcome was obvious.

This, lmao.

oh boy...

What's IT?

And this is... News? anyone here actually surprised?

Yea! Go Geeks!!

...........

No not a surprise

Hmm who would think that a buff fitness instructor would love himself more than someone else?

yuki on high:
...........

No not a surprise

Agreed.

It's like something I heard in Revenge of the Nerds: "Jocks only think about sports. Nerds only think about sex."

Information Technology, I think. It's, in the only terms I can possibly convey, a dude who fixes computers. Graham Linehan can explain it better >> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_IT_Crowd

Ok, thanks.

Anyway the survey in fact may show that geeks are worse lovers, since they are so insecure about their lovemaking techniques they try to please their partner at all costs.

This remains true as long as the geeks aren't 'getting any.' Once they start getting lucky on a regular basis, they'll become the same selfish lovers that most everyone else is.

IT is, it stands for commitment. It stands for audacity. It stands for courage in the face of.

Cookie to whoever gets the reference.

I can honestly see that. Being socially inept and awkward as I am, I can understand the scenario enough that the act itself is about making them feel good, not you, as they're the ones more likely to leave. Focus is actually likely to be a sliding scale in inverse correlation to ego (to the fuckers who need their heads cleared out with a magnum), while skill is going to jump all over the place. If you actually looked at those who actually were good in bed, the numbers would probably look pretty different, far more random.

Heck I knew that already. Geeks are the only interesting ones to talk to as well... they tend to actually pay attention to news, culture, gaming, internet, etc. Yay geeks!

For female players, its all that joystick practice they get. For guys, its knowing how to press the right buttons at the right time.

SEE YAHTZEE, QUICK TIMES HAVE THEIR ADVANTAGE :P Just not in game.

"Theoretically, placing my hand here should-" "YES! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!"

Heh, heh, heh.

Aaaaaaand that's my love life in a nutshell. G'night, folks!

I'm pretty sure it's IT Crowd, therefore I lay claim to your cookie, good sir!
*thanks her god, Graham Linehan*

Also, I thought it actually meant one man whose idea of an adult night out is Lazer Quest followed by pornography and another who collects wires?

Errr....uh...
I...errr....
I'm speechless.

DAMMIT! I was just about to post that, I was going through one last quick scroll and I saw this...

I do think the quote is kind of fitting considering whose survey it was, and especially so with the outcome.

Must resist urge to make jokes about the rumble feature of the Dual Shock.

Optimus Prime:

Why thank you, but I'm sure those screams were perfectly natural.

DeadlyYellow:

Don't resist, do it!

I second this.

Goody goody gumdrops, another skill I'll never need to make use of.
Hooray for me.

Considerate lovers are not always the best lovers though. Just saying.

Damn right. I'm the best lover ever.

What a crushing blow to that popular jock group you always hated in high school! HOORAH GEEKS!

MaxTheReaper:

Lighten up.

As an Xbox owner, does this make me an inconsiderate lover?

shophius:
Damn right. I'm the best lover ever.

Pffff.

Arrers:

Never.

As if their lives weren't hard enough.
A few years after high school, they'll end up working in gas stations.

Do you really want to make it harder on them because they were too stupid to realize sports don't mean shit in the real world?

Damn right geeks make better lovers.

In fact, I think we'd have inherited the earth by now if shouting "FOR GONDOR!" didn't turn out to be such a turn off for the fairer sex.

Who'd have thought it?

Heh heh. You said 'lovers.' Heh.

@ Mewick: I was under the impression we'd already inherited the Earth, have we not?

YES.
You already knew the answer to that particular question, though. Right?
And yaaay for surveys. More statistics we can randomly throw at people who doubt us :-P
