According to a recent poll, over one third of the gaming community are virgins. Now, thanks to founders of popular dating sites Date a Gamer and its naughtier sister site Shag a Gamer, geeks who may be experiencing difficulty getting laid will have their prayers answered when a series of online video tutorials are launched showing them exactly what they need to do to hook up with the opposite sex. 

The videos have been produced in response to 184 out of 500 gamers revealing they are yet to experience their first sexual encounter. The newly commissioned mini-series aims to help gamers who may not have the confidence to launch a charm offensive, get that elusive first date – and maybe more. They are presented by a series of scantily clad gamer babes, who explain just what they’re looking for from a guy. creator Tom Thurlow explains: “Many of our members just want to get out there and have a good time, but more often than not they just don’t know how to talk to members of the opposite sex, let alone get them into bed. 

“We’re hoping that this series will provide them with all of the tools they need to get out there, get dating and start scoring.” 

Gamer babes Jess and Vicky, who are both glamour girls for Shag a Gamer, hope the films will help shy guys get some joystick action.

Jess said: “At the end of the day, a woman has needs – sexual needs – and I’m just looking for someone to overload my buffer.”

Vicky agrees but reminded gamers: “Be yourself.”

“Remember, we’re all different, some like beat ‘em ups and some like shoot ‘em ups. Opposites can attract and sometimes it can lead to great sex.”

All of the videos are hosted by busty blondes and brunettes to help get randy geeks in the mood and see what they’re missing, and the girls don’t leave much to the imagination, with plenty of flesh on display to inspire horny gamers and give them food for thought.

The tutorials, which are available on YouTube, will provide a useful source of information on pulling that gamers and geeks can access from the comfort and privacy of their own homes, and will arm horny techies with tips and tricks they can use to schmooze the ladies (and lads) and enjoy more dating success. 

There are five films in the series, which cover topics such as how to find your perfect gamer and what to say to them, how to handle your first date, how to impress a girl and how to tell if she’s gagging for it, and both Jess and Vicky have a number of tips to set bashful boys on the path to sexual nirvana.

  • Put some effort in – don’t turn up to your first date looking like you’ve spent three days locked in your room gaming
  • Don’t be a button basher – be gentle, use your skills and be willing to co-operate
  • Don’t lose your cool – don’t hammer away at any old button, it won’t win you any trophies
  • Don’t be too flashy – don’t show off and don’t choose somewhere for a first date with a menu you don’t understand or that’s full of business-types. It’ll be embarrassing for both of you.
  • Don’t be late – regardless of whether or not the latest C.o.D has just been launched
  • Don’t play with your phone during a date – the buttons you should be concentrating on are not on your phone.
Shag a Gamer founder Thurlow also added that not all single Gamers will have the same intentions, "Inexperienced guys can use the videos to assist them either on the pull or as a tool to help them win dates. We have a huge community on Date a Gamer so I do appreciate that there will be a large number of men wanting more than just sex."

The videos will be available online from 19 th September on YouTube for single gamers who are looking for a leg up to get their leg over.
