The best news to hit mom's basement EVER.

Gamers haven't got the best rep in the world. If you mention you live by the game life, most females will assume you're some sexually incompetent dweeb who spends most of his time playing Call of Duty in his mother's basement. (As if that were a bad thing!)

In all seriousness, this reputation may be ill-deserved. Need proof? A new study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine determined that men who regularly game actually last longer in sack.

Researchers leered into the sex lives of 600 men from the ages of 18 to 50, asking them about their gaming habits and general erectile function. Researchers, perhaps to some surprise, found that men who spend at least one hour a day gaming were less likely to report suffering from premature ejaculation.

In other words, they can keep it up longer.

But the findings come with an important caveat: those who played video games for an hour a day reported enjoying sex less than their non-gamer counterparts. So maybe gamers just aren't that eager to blow their loads in the first place.

We say: different strokes for different folks. Some prefer the tender touch of a human woman while others prefer to blow up CGI zombies from plastic controllers... so long as they last longer than 30 seconds when they get some non-video game action.
