Video games 'could improve sexual self-esteem'Posted on: October 15, 2013 13:01:30
They say people who sit at home playing computer games every day are unlikely to ever find a new partner.
Common belief would have it that unless you have a hands-on approach to the dating game, then you are at risk of living life as a single for many years to come.
However, according to new research, gaming could be better for your sex life than you may have originally thought. In fact, analysts have suggested that video games could actually improve your sexual self-esteem.
A new study from Stanford University has suggested that women who use sexualised avatars - including Tomb Raider's Lara Croft - to represent themselves in video games are more likely to have more confidence between the sheets in real life.
Researchers, who questioned 86 females between the ages of 18 and 40 years old, found that by embodying a character in a virtual world, an individual's attitude and beliefs can be altered. It was revealed that this phenomenon has an even greater impact when the avatar resembles the person it embodies.
Previous studies have found that gamers with similar-looking avatars are more likely to replicate the fictional character's eating patterns and prefer a brand endorsed by the character.
As part of the study, participants were asked to play video games using an avatar that was either dressed provocatively or conservatively. They were then asked to free-write things that came to mind.
Conclusions revealed that games including a sexualised character were more likely to note down "body-related thoughts", indicating self-objectification.
Those singles who enjoy playing computer games on a regular basis should remember that getting out into the real world and meeting exciting new people can also do wonders for their sex life.
Not only will chatting to a sexy stranger increase your confidence, but it could also get you closer to finding the man of your dreams.
