Nerds Make Better Lovers

Zonk posted more than 9 years ago | from the slashdot-editors-mentioned-specifically dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 1148

ultimabaka writes "The New York Daily News, fine bastion of reporting that it is, released an article today discussing the rise of nerd popularity among women in general, and famous women in particular. Detail is given into the dating exploits of Christina Aguilera and Elin Nordegren (nerdy Tiger Woods' supermodel squeeze), among a bunch of regular Janes. Apparently being a nerd is now in?"

Of course we're better lovers.. it's because (among other things):

- we don't sleep around
- we're generally good at the things we try
- we can concentrate, dammit!
- we have *excellent* finger dexterity :-D
- and most importantly, we have imagination!

MrAnnoyanceToYou (654053) | more than 9 years ago | (#12770422)

BS.

The thing about this article is that it's talking about what good providers nerds make. And what nice guys they are. And how much of a 'turn on' that is. People - women and men both - don't like what's good for them. It just doesn't seem to be the way things work. Intelligence, introversion, and individualistic tendencies (standard geek traits) != Sexy. Eval(Good breadwinner + good hair + muscles == sexy) == 1.*

The famous couples in TFA where the male is paid millions to ACT like he's a geek are not good examples.

Geeks are, of course, willing to put a lot more effort into relationships sometimes. And they are sometimes willing to learn, because it's what they like to do. Occasionally they can be interested in learning interpersonal and social skills. That can make them easier to deal with in some ways, and (or so I've been told) intelligence can make them slightly better in certain situations where a bit of knowledge about biology is helpful. Does this make them more attractive? Not really. Does it make it easier for them to get girls to stick around for a while? Kinda. In my experience, the 'geeky' drive to throw intense, unimaginable-to-non-geeks effort into a problem until it is 'solved' has been a great detriment to every relationship I have ever attempted. Add to that the fact that most of the geeks I've known have been idealists, perfectionists, and socially inept for various reasons, and you get a group of people that aren't that sexy. Female geeks generally have their pick of the litter, and that's a sign that it's a very strong seller's market to me.

Sorry. This article isn't accurate. Modern society isn't getting deeper, it's just that its advice columnists want to think they are.

Darn, and I just got a castration. In a few months I'll get a nullification where they remove everything else and just leave a small hole to pee from. But I will not become a woman. I will become asexual. My excitement will come from learning science instead of porn.

Well, I can still certainly be a good lover--my tounge will still be intact! My fellow nerds--try it out. You can get Androcur over the internet--this gives the same effect as castration, yet is reversible. I took it for a few months before I decided to go through with the castration. Order the pills--and some books on math and science!

I guess the thinking here is that golf is not a real sport, it's not a business enterprise, thus the only category left for Tiger is a nerd?

HER DIARY:

Saturday, May 21st 2005

Saw him in the evening and he was acting really strangely. I went shopping in the afternoon with the girls and I did turn up a bit late so thought it might be that. The bar was really crowded and loud so I suggested we go somewhere quieter to talk. He was still very subdued and distracted so I suggested we go somewhere nice to eat. All through dinner he just didn't seem himself; he hardly laughed and didn't seem to be paying any attention to me or to what I was saying. I just knew that something was wrong. He dropped me back home and I wondered if he was going to come in; he hesitated but followed. I asked him again if there was something the matter but he just half shook his head and turned the television on. After about 10 minutes of Silence, I said I was going upstairs to bed. I put my arms around him and told him that I loved him deeply. He just gave a sigh and a sad sort of smile. He didn't follow me up but later he did, and I was surprised when we made love. He still seemed distant and a bit cold, and I started to think that he was going to leave me and that he had found someone else. I cried myself to sleep.

ravenspear (756059) | more than 9 years ago | (#12770445)

In the short term, nerds are obviously better lovers because they haven't gotten any their whole life, so they are making up for lost opportunities.

In the long term I would suspect that they would be more loyal to their lovers than non-nerds because they know that the chances of them getting any more from someone else are less than average.

I don't know if I'd label the examples used in the Article as 'Nerds' per say. David Arquette, Tiger Woods, and Adam Brody aren't probably coding some new linux module. Besides, they aren't really 'nerds' or 'geeks' anyway. If Christina Aguilera was hooking up with say, Richard Stallman, then yeah maybe I'd consider this a valid point. It seems as though instead of being a nerd, the image of being slightly geeky is considered in style.

julesh (229690) | more than 9 years ago | (#12770464)

Sure, a lot of people will look at this and say "nerds... they'll have no experience" and stop there.

But I think the important thing to note is that most nerds are in my experience, a lot less selfish than the average person in their community. And selfishness in bed is _bad_.

The same lack of selfishness also explains open source software, free SF fanzines, and a whole wide range of nerdy behaviour.

This is a generalization based upon my experiences with friends who are also female. All of them, when they were younger, dated men who were just awful, useless individuals. They all gave the same reason for it also- so that they would be able to appreciate "Mr. Right" when they found him. Granted I think logic like that's just stupid, but there you go. The offshoot is that by the time a woman is ready to settle down with a guy, she's looking for the traits that nerds have; stable, monogomous, dedicated, etc. Even though the nerds are rewarded in the end, its still going to be the same useless men who get all the women in high school and college.

In this classic (cough!) film the nerd 'hero' sleeps with the cheerleader heroine (he is in disguise as 'Darth Vader'), satisfying her mightily. She then discovers his identity, and asks how he can be such a fantastic lover, and he reveals the secret: "We nerds never have girlfriends, so all we do is think about sex." After all, it has been proven by science (scientists are nerds, remember) that the brain is the most important sexual organ. It has also recently been proven (again, by nerd scientists who sit at their computers all day) that just THINKING about exercising is almost as effective at increasing strength as actually exercising. Therefore, it makes sense that just thinking about sex must make you better at it.

Well that was a nice "fluff" piece (badda bing). But really a worthless article.

So, what did we learn.

- It's good to be rich!
- If you want to bag the biggies (in name), then you have to be able to hang out with them (i.e. be rich, a star, both)
- It's good to be rich!
- "Babes" don't necessarily go for "hunks", esp if their Rich!

If I get one of you nerds the wool... (1)

I must have missed the part where he taped his glasses together. What makes him a geek?

I don't think geeks are becoming more popular. I think we're just expanding the definition of "geek" until just about anyone can qualify. You wear glasses? You're in! Own a computer? Woah, how geeky! Damn, *and* a PDA??? You must be the ubergeek!

Seriously... being smart and tech savvy isn't enough to qualify for geek status any more. We need to raise the bar.
