Why Gamers Have the Best Sex

The Internet has changed the game. And by game I mean the game of Love. People who wouldn’t have met under normal circumstances are now able to have vicarious spiritual relationships through the Internet. Some of these people actually meet and live happily ever after, but I think it’s safe to say that this isn’t the case with most online relationships. People come and go into our lives faster than ever before. If you think about it, the Internet allows us to live twice the life we would’ve been able to prior to its existence.
Logging on to my PC allows me to enter an entirely different state of existence than I receive from my immediate everyday life. There are tons of people in my life, some more important than others, but I will say that most of my meaningful human interactions have come from the Internet through MMOs. I have met an innumerable amount of individuals online who have made more of a positive influence on my life than I have outside of that realm. In times past I would’ve been branded a loser, a geek, a nerd, an oddball, and probably a dozen other things that used to have a negative connotation. Now, it seems, because of Facebook especially that more and more ordinary people are evolving into the basement dwellers of the past! Those of us born nerds embrace them too because we were right about how awesome computers were in the first place! So what if we didn’t call Mary Rottencrotch’s house back in the late 80s/early 90s on that archaic clunky device called a telephone? We were online then doing what many so-called normal people are just learning to do with widespread online applications like Facebook, Myspace, and instant text messaging.
Now this begs the question, are we true-blooded nerds further evolved than the norm is when it comes to these online interactions? In general, yes. We are gamers! The pinnacle of human evolution! I know on a good week I’ll log over 30 hours online playing MMOs, and while I’ll spend a lot of that time actually playing my game of choice, which so happens to be World of Warcraft, I spend most of my time idling in Stormwind chit-chatting in-game and on vent with friends I’ve made throughout my various exploits in Azeroth. In a sense MMOs for this reason, I believe, serve as a stepping stone in human interaction and communication that will become more mainstream in the next ten to fifteen years.
Now returning to the sex question…does it matter with regards to intimate communication through gaming? Not as much as it used to be. Virtual property, and tasks in MMOs and in other online games can often be substituted for intimate human contact. Yes, that quest your boyfriend really needs to complete can psychologically be just as effective as letting him sow his wild oats! I really believe that giving your girlfriend (or boyfriend) that special token of your appreciation in the form of a virtual gift, be it running your partner in crime through Shadowfang Keep, or dboxing that epic shield they’ve been saving up all their gold for allows people to have more meaningful online interactions with one another. You know–a little something to show that you care. (/winkwinknudgenudge) Something to think about is the connection two people might have with each other over a long period of time when interacting in this way. I’d wager to say, based on my own personal experience that the connection people have with their main-squeeze in an MMO is a much more spiritual connection than traditional couples have in real life. Sure, there is no physical relationship, but that’s not to say a relationship that exists wholly on the Internet isn’t just as important and momentous as a physical one. What’s closer than a relationship that’s spiritual? If it’s unfettered, open and honest, and above all genuine I fully believe relationships, such as these, can grow to become much stronger than physical relationships.
All that being said, just imagine how awesome the sex would be when you meet your online pal! Here I’ll break it down for you.
Prior Vicarious Spiritual Connection + $350 plane ticket + Years of Intimate Online History = Explosive Sex
For you couples out there that met offline, I’m really happy for you, Ima let you finish but online couples have the potential to have better sex than you! My advice for everyone in any kind of relationship both online and off? Get to know someone from the inside and keep that interest fresh by showing you care for them in a spiritual sense. Trust me, the sex will be amazing.
