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.

quiknkoldI'm sure you are, Andrew10/21/2014 - 1:44pm
Andrew EisenNintendo announced the Link amiibo is compatible with Hyrule Warriors. No idea how Nintendo expects anyone to give a toss if it don't tell us what it does. Then again, maybe I'm just being curmudgeonly.10/21/2014 - 1:25pm
Neo_DrKefkaSo Gamergate compared me to leftist Saul Alnsky....ME off all the people10/21/2014 - 1:16pm
IanCWell.... quite.10/21/2014 - 1:10pm
Andrew EisenWell of course. Girls don't buy figurines and guys don't buy figurines of girls. And no, the girls that buy figurines and the guys that buy figurines of girls don't count. The money belongs on the table, thank you very much!10/21/2014 - 12:43pm
IanCI have 3 of the Disney Infinity figures even though i don't have the game (Rapunzel from Tangled, and Anna & Elsa from Frozen, purely because its the only way to get figures from those two films)10/21/2014 - 12:23pm
Andrew EisenGlad you said "Pokemon." That's the first time I've seen anyone use that abbreviation.10/21/2014 - 12:14pm
MaskedPixelanteGot my demo key for ORAS, hope I get some awesome Pokemon to bring over.10/21/2014 - 12:08pm
E. Zachary KnightNot owning a WiiU helps too.10/21/2014 - 11:39am
E. Zachary KnightI have avoided Skylanders and Disney Infinity so far, so I don't see how Amiibos will get me in their grasp.10/21/2014 - 11:39am
Andrew EisenYes, GamerGate has a lot of fair-weather friends.10/21/2014 - 11:25am
Neo_DrKefkaI'm disheartened we have a group of people in Gamergate such as The Ralph Retort that is using Gamergate to prop themselves up but they are acting just like those they are fighting against. Only gaming site coming out of gamergate that worthy is TechRaptr10/21/2014 - 11:17am
Andrew EisenNot I. I'm not interested in desktop tchotchkes. Don't know what they do in Captain Toad (a game I'll actually be picking up) but I'm not impressed by what they do in Smash Bros.10/21/2014 - 11:10am
quiknkoldso in a change of subject to something much lighter, who here is getting the Amiibos? I have 4 preordered.10/21/2014 - 7:02am
TechnogeekFor a change of pace, here's a story about death threats aimed at games industry employees via Twitter that has nothing whatsoever to do with Gamergate: http://kotaku.com/indie-dev-threatens-gabe-newell-has-game-removed-from-164867886910/21/2014 - 4:38am
MechaCrashThey aren't being held accountable because *this is what GamerGate is really about.* Hatred and harassment under a thin veneer of concern for ethics; it's a rotten movement right down to the core. Related: http://tinyurl.com/o5mamgn10/21/2014 - 1:53am
