Yes, Virginia, Geeks Are Better in Bed

Defying all expectations, technology professionals were voted the best lovers in a UK poll. Why? Because their tools are rechargeable.

geeks-sex-studyAre you a lonely lady, looking for a little lovin’? Forget dialing 866-HOT STUD. Call tech support instead.

An anonymous survey of 2000 users at PS3PriceCompare.co.uk, found that IT workers are the “least selfish” lovers, always willing to lend a helping hand to a friend in need.

Maybe it’s because they’re used to digging into complicated situations and fiddling around until they’ve got the problem licked. Or maybe because they’re not shy about using the right tool for the job.

In response to the question asking whether their partner’s pleasure was more important than their own, Vibrator.com blogger “Sally Rhyde” writes:

IT workers came out on top, with 82% saying that’s the case. Seventy-four percent of office workers claim to be selfless in the bedroom, and 70% of workers in the healthcare industry…. Even more interesting than IT workers making the best lovers were the survey responses indicating IT workers were the most likely (78%) to use sex toys. Can we take the easy way out and say they’re just comfortable around technology?  

Hey, we’ve been saying this for years. The long-held myth of nookie-challenged dorks can officially be laid to rest. Because when it comes from an authoritative source like PS3PriceCompare.co.uk, it’s hard to argue with the results.

The lowest of the low on the lovers totem poll? You guessed it: Fitness trainers. They scored a flaccid 41 percent on the selfless lover question. Less than a third were willing to rev up the Deep Stroker Rabbit vibrator and give it a go.

Maybe it’s all that steroid abuse, or maybe it’s because they’re all secretly gay. In either case all we can say is, Suck on that, you muscle-bound cretins.

Full disclosure: Other surveys at PS3PriceCompare reveal that 72 percent of men would choose gaming over sex. So it’s entirely possible no one who filled out the site’s sex survey has ever actually experienced coitus. But we’ll be damned before we cop to that.
