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."

Re: Survey: Female Gamers Prefer Gaming over Sex

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.

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 EisenActually, "things I'd like to see become standard in video games" ain't a bad idea for one of my future YouTube videos.07/03/2015 - 1:05am
Andrew EisenYou know what I'd really like to see become standard? The ability to pause cutscenes. Rewind and skip (with "Are you sure?") would be nice too. Oh, and maybe display the duration of the cutscene when it's paused.07/03/2015 - 1:03am
Mattsworknameonly reason to do region locking now is to be dicks your consumer base. Granted, we see that ALOT these days07/03/2015 - 12:48am
MattsworknameI understand the concerns about the region locking thing, I just thing that if you buy a game legitimately, no matter where it's from or what langauge it's in, you should be allowed to play it. the argument about piracy was proven false years ago, the07/03/2015 - 12:47am

Goth_SkunkI'm in full agreement on the subtitles issue. I also believe that every game should come with a single-player component, and be playable without an internet connection. Except MMOs.07/02/2015 - 10:51pm
TechnogeekRegion locking bans seem like something that'll be very difficult to pass into law. I'm fully on board with the subtitle requirement, though.07/02/2015 - 10:00pm
MattsworknameFor example, all games with any for form of spoken dialoge should be i subtitled, and region locking in any form should be illegal07/02/2015 - 9:03pm
MattsworknameDoes anyone feel that there should be a set standard for all games in terms of certain basic features. Ie subtitles, region lock, etc07/02/2015 - 9:01pm

TechnogeekI got expletive-censored for posting something a few weeks back wherein I expressed my shock that I agreed with you about something, Skunk; so you're not the only one being hit with that stick.07/02/2015 - 4:31pm
