1337 in games, n00b in bed

It’s always been… well, tacitly assumed that those of us — I mean, of humanity in general — who excel in the fine art of fragging, have always lagged behind somewhat in the romantic arena. Despite all the “geeks are sexy” and “love is leet” sentiments going around these days, there’s no way some fox is going to prefer a guy just because of his gaming prowess. And now, it seems that this lack of love, so maligned as unfair, may have a basis in fact. The BBC reports:

[Paula Hall, sexual psychotherapist] said men with primary premature ejaculation tended to be fast reactors generally.
“These men have very quick reflexes. They may be excellent at playing tennis or computer games, for example.”

So it’s not really premature ejaculation, it’s preemptive ejaculation. Now there’s a backhanded compliment. To be honest, I despise this kind of overanalysis of offhand remarks by researchers, leading to ridiculous “research says” articles like this one. So please, forget everything I’ve told you. But feel free to, you know, use it as an excuse next time.
