And behold, a topic near to Candy’s heart, and mine: the geek hero.
Seems Wired Magazine loves them as much as we do (obviously) for they have compiled a somewhat tongue-in-cheek list: The 10 Real Reasons Why Geeks Make Better Lovers.
The best part? The supportive echo of Candy’s previously published sentiments:
I’ve read recently that geeks make better lovers because they are so unaccustomed to romance that they will do anything for their mates. Also because geeks don’t have the social skills to cheat (wanna bet?).
Yeah, ha ha, let’s chuckle at the stereotypes. Might as well add that geeks won’t waste valuable relationship time watching football. Or that geeks are clueless and fashion-impaired and have the social skills of a bowl of fruit.
But you know what? Humorous Top-10 lists aside, geeks really do make the best lovers, for reasons that have nothing to do with adolescent ostracism or puppy-like devotion.
It’s all about sex-tech.
From increased sensitivity to environment, even if that environment is virtual, to role playing and intimate familiarity with fantasy enactment, geeks have it going on.
Which we knew, of course.
