Xbox 360 gamers are the best at sex, apparently

Yes, people do actually do studies relating gamers' choice of consoles to their bedroom performances. The guys at Voucher Codes Pro in the UK have surveyed 1,747 partners of gamers, asking them what console their partner plays video games on, and also how good they are in bed, as part of "research into external influences on relationships".

The good news? If you're an Xbox 360 owner, apparently you are the most likely to be good at sex, with 54% being rated at least "Good" by their partners, while 22% were "Excellent". The next best console owners were those with a Wii or Wii U, of which 47% managed to be at least "Good" at sex, and 52% of respondents felt like there was a good balance between the amount of gaming and the frequency of sex.

The bad news? PC gamers were rated the worst at sex out of all the gaming systems, with only 3% being regarded as "Excellent" and a further 8% qualifying for "Very Good". Also, on the whole gamers are apparently quite average at sex, with 51% of the total failing to be rated "Good" by their partners, and 11% of participants claimed they wanted "less sex, more gaming" from their partners (ouch).

The whole study probably shouldn't be taken very seriously at all, but at least if you do happen own an Xbox 360 you could claim you're statistically more likely to be good at sex.

On one side of the spectrum, we have an individual wearing a sea-shell necklace with polo shirt, cargo shorts and flip flops, drives a jeep, and plays Madden, Call of Duty, and Halo...

...and then you have the other side filled with lard-asses who are socially awkward, dressed wearing trench coats and fedoras, and get angry when you offend their favorite companies.

(just a random thought, I don't play Xbox)

So... in other words, Xbox players are the biggest liars. While PC gamers are more honest is what we can conclude.
Not that I would ever take this "study" as proof of anything in a million years.

Prehaps because after a while the controller becomes uncomfortable and it's better to just go for a shag

Thanks Neowin for an article which will bring me so much benefit. Wow, sex, must post about it.

Sad bro.

Neowin is rapidly degenerating with these sorts of articles that might be fine in the jokes forum but not on the front page.

ohh, they you are the PC player. No wonder you did not like the article

PC players might not like the article. But the graphics are amazing to see those PS3 and Xbox players!

Never connected the dots before... so that's why I'm not getting laid. It's because I don't own a console.

she's lying to make you feel better LOL

Probably, but can't complain, still fun for me

My girlfriend just plays PC games and board/card games with me =)

You know that this is just a bullsh1t story designed to generate publicity for a crappy voucher codes website, right?

That's somewhat unlucky. I'm a huge fan of Halo, however I still find the time to get out, socialize and get it on!

I own all the consoles so in theory i should be perfect at sex. I can tell you, based off the responses i get, that it isn't true.

What console are that "couple" playing in the picture? A Mega Drive? was sex even about back then?
