Skip to comments.What job says about sex life (IT workers are best in bed)
Posted on 05/23/2009 12:43:33 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
THE next time you want to bag the bonk of your life, you need a partner who knows a lot about your hardware.
While computer nerds are obviously good at IT, what we didn't realise is that they're good at "it" too.
An anonymous study of 2,000 British men and women concluded that out of all jobs, computer geeks make the best lovers.
They were found to be the most selfless in the sack, the most adventurous and more likely to use love gadgets.
Seventy-eight per cent of techies that were questioned also claimed that sex toys were part of their love life.
And a further eight out of ten tech workers said that sex toys played an important part in their sexual relationships
Eighty-two per cent of IT workers also claimed to consider their partners sexual needs above there own, the highest result from all of those asked.
And if you think a perfect bod means a perfect romp, think again.
Those participants who worked in the fitness industry were found to be least likely to use sex toys, with just three in ten using them regularly.
And they were also found to be the most selfish lovers too.
When asked whether they considered their partner's needs above their own, only 41 per cent said yes, the lowest score of all.
But when it comes to stamina those hours on the treadmill definitely pay off.
When asked if they have sex more than three times a week, all that joystick jiggling had worn IT workers out.
They finished third to office workers and fitness experts.
And here I just finished reading the one that said rich men are more, ahem, satisfying to women...
this makes my day! :-)
There is a point when trying to please people puts people off. We all want other people to be a bit of a challenge.
What does it really mean to be selfless, anyway? Isn’t sex about both people? And if these guys are truly selfless, does that mean they’d be willing to get a buddy off if he really needed it? Obviously not. You have to get something out of sex to enjoy it. There are some straight guys who engage in homosexual sex without enjoying it, but they do it for the money.
IT guys probably worry about the next time they’ll get laid. Also, their lack of experience may hurt them more than their willingness helps. Practice makes perfect.
Finally, who cares what they say? The proof of the pudding is in the eating.
I don’t know. Seems to me that if you need love “gadgets”, then your own “gadgets” must not be up to par, not to mention your imagination . . . .
wasn’t this the point of “Revenge of the Nerds”?
100% of those 82% lie on sex surveys.

The author seems to place heavy emphasis on the use of mechanical gadgets; one is forced to wonder where the concept of love fits into all this.
No matter. In future, as Woody Allen has informed us in his movie, “Sleeper,” everyone will have access to the Ultimate Gadget - the Ogasmatron. After that, one will hardly have to resort to other human beings at all for the satisfaction of one’s carnal appetites.
that's what she said...
Revenge of the Nerds Pings?
Somehow I don’t think the concepts of “being good in bed” and “willing to use sex devices” are compatible. If one is truly good at this sort of thing, why is a device even needed?
Call me Old Fashioned. The only device I need is my hubby.
I think you beat me to this point. I could not agree more! Who needs gadgets???? Not me.
Curiously, I am a C#.NET / ASP.NET / SQl 2005 guru.
That was freakin funny right there.
You don't know what you are missing.
Wanna bet the Apple guys think they are better than everyone else?
Heck, I get my buddies off when they DON'T need it.
Apple guys have sex lives?
That's cuz you're the man.
LOL. At least you didn’t give me picture of the electric chair.
I knew this all along. ;)
It's because we practice so much when we're alone.
Hmmm, there's good money in IT...
I could finish an infinite loop in 500 nanoseconds.
FReepers missed the obvious.
Some IT guy tweaked the results! :-D
On a serious note, how is it the use of devises makes one a better lover? My cynical eye reads that as “Inadequate as Equipped.”

The right tool for the right job.
The term you are looking for is "upgrade".
LOL! I stand corrected! From the author’s point of view, at any rate. ;o)
Spoken like a true niave minuteman.
Selfless means to ndo something no matter the benefit to onesself. It does not mean one cannot be selfless if they get something out of it. It means the benefit or not maters nothing in why one does something.
We are not all selfless. For instance, I am taking the time to help you understand the truth, rather than the fallacy you are presenting. It benefits me nothing for you to be educated, yet I am using my time to assist you.
You might point out that doing so makes me feel better about myself.
That could not be further from the truth. I care nothing about how instructing you makes me feel. Your life will not affect me in any manner, so even if I cared about others’ feelings, yours would not be considered in the least.
IT guys are not the pocket-protecting geeks of 1950. We are the guys who study how women function, know what motivates them, and who steal your girlfriend while you are at Gold’s Gym trying to impress your buddies with your arm size.
More importantly, we IT guys love to read technical manuals. M & J is a great book for the IT guy. We read it like we do the WIndows Vista installation manual.
Oh, and IT guys get paid more on average than any other field...the richest man in the world is what? An IT guy.
Is it true you women do not realize how demanding you are? A man can be hung like a horse, as durable as the Duracell Bunny, and as selfless as the Dali Lama, and you would still bitch about not being satisfied.
With added equipment, when we exhaust ourselves, you can add a little extra. Plus, we can blame it on the batteries if you aren't, and truthfully, what woman is, ever satisfied.
And don't tell me you are completely satisfied by your husband. I won't believe it unless he says it himself.
Even then, I will question whether you are making him say it. And, even if given proof that he is saying it of his own free will, I would need a signed affidavit from a gynecologist stating that you are indeed a woman and not a man with alterations.
Well between the two of them they have seven kids so they must be getting something right.
“It means the benefit or not maters nothing in why one does something.”
If you don’t think every male, everywhere, who has any interest in pleasing women, doesn’t do so to benefit themselves, I’ve got a bridge to sell you. It’s not that “we are not all selfless”. None of us are. None.
If you want to come up with another term, a term that explains *mostly* not caring about the outcome—call it strategic altruism or enlgihtened non-self-interest. But don’t sully the English language by dubbing sensitive lovers “selfless”.
Oh, and if you haven’t figured out by now that money and a steady career aren’t the most important things to bedding (and pleasing) a woman—especially when you’re young, i.e. when it’s most important—I don’t know what to tell you. Also, sex is not one of the things in life that can be learned in a book. It takes practice. And you know who gets practice? Guys who don’t have to read manuals, be they bodybuilders or internet technicians.
As far as the whole “pickup artist” phenomenon goes, sure, those guys started out as nerds. They studied. And they consistently beat natural alpha-male types. But did they win the day by being selfless? Hell no. They won the day by studying the naturals, co-opting their moves, and practicing, practicing, practicing.
“the richest man in the world is what? An IT guy”
That’s a bit of a stretch. He deals in computers, yes, but he’s an entreprenuer and a CEO, not an IT guy. Oh, and I bet some sultan in Dubai or somewhere has more money, and a ton of chicks.
As a retired geek married to another geek....well, you get the idea.
IT guys run a virus scan up-front ...
“IT guys run a virus scan up-front ...”
That saves trouble, I guess. Also more evidence that they aren’t selfless.
The best lovers I’ve had were of average proportions, and *knew what to do with it.* No machinery needed.
LOL, and yes, I have learned to watch out what I wish for. There IS such a thing as too much!
I was about to post something like that.
Like they say, a man that can eat, will never go hungry.
