Geeks in Bed: Less Selfish, More Adventurous

By Casey Lynn
Contributing Writer, [GAS]

geekinbedA recent study in the UK revealed that geeks are good in bed – or at least, less selfish than, for example, gym rats. Four out of five geeks agreed that your partner’s pleasure is more important than your own, as opposed to less than half of respondents who work in the sports and fitness industry. Also, tech industry professionals are far more likely to use sex toys (eight out of ten!).

Granted, this wasn’t exactly the most scientific study, based on survey results and a sample of only about 2000 British men and women who voluntarily answered a survey which happened to have been conducted by a video game website. But it’s interesting food for thought.  But then, around here there’s never been any doubt that geeks are sexy.

One delightful survey trend: those who are more interested in gadgets and new technology are also interested in experimenting with sex toys.

  1. I'm confused, I tried to share this story and did you COMPLETELY forget that some of us don't use all the social networking services you have listed there? What happened to sending the link via email FROM the article itself? You may have made it easier for someone to share the story via social networking, but you made it a step back for those of us using email.

      Open New Email Message. Click in Email Body. Right Click Paste

      :S

    • Oh my God you're an idiot, Sanjay. Try copying the link that's up in the friggin' URL bar and paste that into the e-mail for your friends.

    • Frodo and Mark,

      I don’t think Sanjay had an issue with not being able to figure out he could just copy the link and send it on, it’s more that it means more effort like copying the link, bringing up his email client or webmail, creating a new email with the link and a little explanation. It could also simple be he liked that feature and is dismayed at it not being there anymore.

      That copy paste idea requires a lot more effort than simply typing in his friends email address into a box and clicking send and them sending a nice formatted email saying “This person thought you might be interested in this”.

      Did you know that the vast majority of people will go to Google first then type in the name of a company, brand or name to get a list of search results to get a link to them, when most of the time all they needed to do was type in the same information to the url bar and add a simple .com or .co.uk etc. and they would get to the site directly. It’s certainly less effort and yet they do it time and time again.

      Now this site may have removed the feature because it was hardly being used, but that doesn’t negate that Sanjay as a user of the site can say that he is disappointed that the feature is no longer there as it inteferes with his enjoyment of the site.

      In fact you may find that a lot of people agree with this viewpoint and that they may have to put it back in.

      Overall it makes the site better for all users and without his feedback could ruin the usability of the site.

      It is important to encourage people to speak up about things like these, instead, both your comments only serve to slag him off instead of being constructive like his comment.

      • Ok, If the bar has changed then whatever but it is that little email envelope on the right side of the bar, so yeah. If it hasn't changed then you fail and more research is needed before any of you complain or reply.

        If it has changed then thank you Sir, you got your point across but it is there now. Since I doubt that it just popped there in these two weeks in between my post and @Pharoah3d('s) post, you sir fail at your rant and are ranting for too long and for not helping at all. You should have pointed that out.

  3. Geeks are more likely to watch porn. And as such are more likely to try mimicking what they watch.

  6. In other words, we’re more likely to do research and experiments in the field of pleasure.

  7. Mechanical engineers who are actively working in the field are THE BEST.

    Assess it, try it, refine it, test it. Test it, test it, test it, til it's perfect! What's not to like?
