We found this article in The Sun online. Certainly seems to be the case with recently publicised celebrity nymphogamers Zac Efron and Andy Murray.

ONE in three men would prefer to play video games than enjoy SEX with their other halves, shocking new research revealed today.

And nearly THREE QUARTERS of blokes said they would give up the chance of a romp with their partners to play a brand new game. Reasons men gave for choosing to bash their buttons rather than opt for naughty frolics ranged from partners “being hard to please” to “not being as much fun”.

Specialist PlayStation3 site questioned 1,130 men who were in relationships for the study. When asked “Which would you prefer; sex with your partner or an evening playing video games?”, 32 per cent of men said they would prefer to play video games. But that number shot up when the question changed to include “new video games”. And almost half of those questioned said that if given £50 to spend they would buy a video game, with only 3 per cent spending it on bills.

Mike Elsmore, developer of, said:

“I, like many other men, am an avid gamer, but even I find these results startling.”
