Gaming in bed more popular than sex

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/03...lar_than_sex/1

According to a recent UK poll, gaming in bed is more popular than, uh, other bedroom activities...

I would suggest that most of the people who took that poll were too shy to put sex down on a form handed to them

35 minutes of sex? Is that per hour, per day or per year?

That's actually quite sad. It's almost saying sex is a chore for some. Time for the stick of joy to make a comeback me thinks and for people to rediscover those warm feelings.

Does everyone have gaming laptops? I would think that this is not just limited to computer gaming, but gaming in general. Playing a console game while in bed is much easier than a PC game.

3150 minutes per week is
450 minutes per day is
7.5 hours per day.

Seems normal to me

Who works in bed? They make me go to the office! All the rest I can kinda agree to as my pc desk is next to the bed so I don't have to buy a chair.

Wouldn't the SN25P be a bit of tight squeeze, especially with all those other bits in it too?

I know. I was joking.

Presumably people were asked what they do in bed, not what they would prefer to be doing (gaming over sex? Now that's hardcore gaming )

try that poll in the US.

I guarantee you that #10 would certainly not be #10, probably #2 or 3

also the age spectrum comes into play here in a big way. how many people where what ages when they responded?

I'd suggest the OCZ headband thing, but that would only be useful if you were trying to teabag an opponent you had just killed.

wow thats depressing. 35 minutes a week? hmmm. Mind you if you average out the people who are single who have no sex in bed, then i guess that might be about right. IT'd be interesting to see that suvey done only with people who have the option of having sex...

I'm going to leave that post there, and let you all wonder whether I think it's too much or too little.
