Everyone loves to play games, especially GTA Online, NBA 2K, Call of Duty, PUBG, and many more, but a new study has something shocking to reveal.
A new study suggests that gamers actually prefer to play games rather than having sexual intercourse with someone else.
The Sleep Judge carried out a study of how games affect our lives, especially how it affects the gamer’s bedtime routines.
The study that was conducted by the Sleep Judge states, “While TV revenue decreased by 8%, the gaming sector experienced a 10.7% growth, with even higher figures reported in emerging markets like China (14%).”
It added, “This translates to an average of just over seven hours spent gaming per week, although for some, it’s much, much more. Gamers of all ages increased the number of hours they spent gaming between 2018 and 2019, and more than 10% of gamers between the ages of 18 and 45 spent more than 20 hours per week playing video games.”
In the study, 982 people were surveyed. The people played a video game at least once per month.
The people were asked about their activities, sexual relationships, and about their sleep.
The study did find out one thing, which is gamers prefer playing games than having sex with their partner.
The study said gamers ignored their partner’s hints at some coital action, which led to the discovery of 1 out of 5 gamers would rather keep on playing than getting frisky with their partner.
The study continued, “How many people were willing to trade canoodling for controllers before bed? On the whole, a modest 15% of respondents said they had brushed off their partner’s sexual advances in favor of continuing to play a video game, a behavior slightly more common among women (16% versus 13.9% of men).”
The study also indicates that sex life does not mean you need to be intimate with your partner every single night.
The study asked every gamer if they would play a game before going to sleep, and almost everyone said yes.
41.6 percent of the men said every day or often and 38.8 women said the same thing.
Talking about how playing games affects the sleeping pattern of gamers, the study said, “One-third of people who gamed before bed either ‘every day’ or ‘often’ said the quality of their sleep was poor, compared to less than 20% of people who played video games less frequently.”
The study added, “Frequently playing video games before bed was also strongly associated with taking longer to fall asleep, as well as waking up during the night.”
It continued, “These adverse effects are likely due to the fact that stimulating your brain with screens right before you’re supposed to fall asleep actually messes with your biological clock, causing your body to release less melatonin (the hormone that makes you feel drowsy and ready for sleep).”
Gamers who played games before going to sleep had a hard time trying to sleep, woke up a lot in the middle of night, had a hard time in drifting off, and slept fewer hours.
The study indicated that people who didn’t play games slept better than those who played games before going to sleep.
