Survey: Female Gamers Prefer Gaming over Sex

July 15, 2011 -

Maybe someone is doing something wrong? According to a survey commissioned by (of all people) Doritos, 84 percent of women gamers said they enjoyed playing games more than any other activity including sex (70 percent), working out (62 percent), shopping (71 percent), and takings baths (75 percent). Nearly one in five female gamers (17 percent) also admitted they play online games in bed.

The survey also founded that Women play online games for longer periods of time than men. Participants said that they spent an average of 3.5 hours playing online games each week. 23.1 percent of women's time online is spent gaming, compared with 22.3 percent for males. The survey of 2,052 people found that 49 percent of women play online games, almost matching the percentage (50 percent) of men that game online.

The survey was commissioned by the snack maker to coincide with the launch of its new Facebook game, Doritos Dip Desperado.

"Social and mobile gaming is hugely popular and, as the survey reveals, amongst women as much as men," said Doritos marketing manager Hugo Amos. "We wanted to create a game that is fun and entertaining for everyone. It will be exciting to see who tops the Doritos Dip Desperado Facebook leaderboard over coming weeks."

This is to be expected? No? How many of you men out there are budding Don Juan's? Whats that? No smooth talkers out there among the geeks? How about how long young men can "hold it" until you blow your wad? 15 min if you lucky? A woman's "engine" isnt even purring after 15 min.

And we all wonder why the girls like the games more than the guys...

 

Thank god my wife took the time to train me adequately in year one of our marriage.

I have a dream, break the chains of copy right oppression! http://zippydsmlee.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/cigital-disobedience/


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

So something designed for enjoyment is more enjoyable than a reproduction mechanism that evolution, in its typically clumsy way, has imperfectly resulted in us quite liking?

Who'd have thought it?!

Re: Survey: Female Gamers Prefer Gaming over Sex

Not related, but a fun fact nonetheless: Outside of humans, the only other species on the planet that have sex for recreation are dolphins and chimpanzees.

What about gaming while having sex? 

Re: Survey: Female Gamers Prefer Gaming over Sex

Thank goodness my girlfriend sucks at L4D and gets bored quickly. She'll think this is hilarious though.

Re: Survey: Female Gamers Prefer Gaming over Sex

A woman's clitoris contains 8,000 nerve endings. The male foreskin (the man's most sensitive erogenous zone) contains 20,000. Given that, it's not surprising that sex for a woman is not all it is for a man. Heck, if I only had the 4,000 nerves that a circumcised penis has, I'd probably enjoy games more than sex too.

Re: Survey: Female Gamers Prefer Gaming over Sex

Actually, females generally prefer a great many things over sex.   Not surprising in the least. 

Re: Survey: Female Gamers Prefer Gaming over Sex

At least in the US it is not surprising.  US culture is still pretty sex negative when it comes to females and probably will be for several more generations.

Re: Survey: Female Gamers Prefer Gaming over Sex

Women!  Am I right, guys?  Something something kitchen something pie something sweaters.  Let me see if I can find the picture of the car we half-buried in the high school field for our senior prank and label it "woman driver."  After that hearty chuckle we can all go watch football and drink beer!

...NOT THAT WE LIKE FOOTBALL AND BEER MORE THAN SEX.  No sir.  We're men so clearly sex is top of the list.  We would've scored it 110% in that survey.

Andrew EisenAs it happens, Chinatown Wars is the only GTA game I've played.04/19/2014 - 10:43am
Papa MidnightWith GTA5 (to date) failing to even provide indication of a PC release, I'm realising that this might be the first GTA game that I have not played (outside of Chinatown Wars) since the series inception.04/19/2014 - 8:14am
IanCSo im guessing a bunch of edutainment games, which a lot of people elsewhere are going gaga over, dot count as classics? Okay. If you don't mind me, i have a sudden urge to play Putt Putt....04/19/2014 - 6:15am

Matthew Wilsonit is a video talking about why certain games/products/consoles do well, and others do not. he back it up with solid research.04/18/2014 - 3:56pm
Andrew EisenI'm not keen on blind links. What is it?04/18/2014 - 3:45pm
Matthew Wilsonthis is worth a whatch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyXcr6sDRtw&list=PL35FE5C4B157509C904/18/2014 - 3:43pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 2: If Humongous Entertainment wanted their stuff on Steam, why didn't they talk to their parent company, which does have a number of games published on Steam?04/17/2014 - 8:45pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 1: When Night Dive spent the better part of a year teasing the return of true classics, having their big content dump be edutainment is kind of a kick in the stomach.04/17/2014 - 8:44pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.giantbomb.com/articles/jeff-gerstmann-heads-to-new-york-takes-questions/1100-4900/ He talks about the future games press and the games industry. It is worth your time even though it is a bit long, and stay for the QA. There are some good QA04/17/2014 - 5:28pm
IanCErm so they shouldn't sell edutainment at all? Why?04/17/2014 - 4:42pm
MaskedPixelanteNot that linkable, go onto Steam and there's stuff like Pajama Sam on the front-page, courtesy of Night Dive.04/17/2014 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenOkay, again, please, please, PLEASE get in a habit of linking to whatever you're talking about.04/17/2014 - 4:05pm
MaskedPixelanteAnother round of Night Dive teasing and promising turns out to be stupid edutainment games. Thanks for wasting all our time, guys. See you never.04/17/2014 - 3:44pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the consequences were not only foreseeable, but very likely. anyone who understood supply demand curvs knew that was going to happen. SF has been a econ/trade hub for the last hundred years.04/17/2014 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenMixedPixelante - Would you like to expand on that?04/17/2014 - 2:43pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, I am officially done with Night Dive Studios. Unless they can bring something worthwhile back, I'm never buying another game from them.04/17/2014 - 2:29pm
