UK dating site Shag a Gamer gives YouTube tips to virgin gamers

"Sometimes I need someone to overload my buffer."

Online dating service Shag a Gamer has launched a new YouTube mini-series that offers tips to virgins within the gaming community.

A recent poll quoted by Shag a Gamer revealed that more than a third of gamers taking part (184 of 500) had yet to experience their first sexual encounter.

Shag a Gamer set up a new YouTube channel (under the name of its sister site, Date a Gamer) to help. It currently features videos such as "How to date a sexy gamer girl" and "How to impress a girl into bed after the first date".

"I love gaming and I can go on all day about my kill-to-death ratio. But what I really want is to find a feisty gamer guy - or even a girl," explained 'gamer babe' Vicky.

"If lose your cool and hammer away at any old button, you're not going to win any trophies."

'If you go somewhere you don't understand the menu, not only could it be a problem for you, but it could also intimidate your date.'

In a video titled "What to do on a first date with a single gamer", fellow model Jessica gave her advice.

"If he can feel my vibe and fill my bandwidth, it could turn into a physical relationship," she said. "At the end of the day, everyone has sexual needs. And sometimes I need someone to overload my buffer."

Jessica then stared at the camera and slapped herself on the bottom.

"If lose your cool and hammer away at any old button, you're not going to win any trophies."

The mini-series is wrapped up by a meaty one-minute-and-29-seconds investigation into the role of women in video games. "Girls vs. computer games" ended with Jessica's cutting conclusion:

"Even though we're not the brains behind the computer games, if it wasn't for our candid nature you boys would be nowhere. Remember who Ronaldo spoke to when he left United for Real Madrid? That's right, his Mum.

"Some men think women are high maintenance," she said. "They obviously haven't played Diablo 3."

The videos are intended for "inexperienced" single gamers "who are looking for a leg up to get their leg over", Shag a Gamer founder Tom Thurlow explained.

"More often than not they just don't know how to talk to members of the opposite sex, let alone get them into bed," he crooned. 

"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."

Date a Gamer spin-off Shag a Gamer launched in July. It's purpose is to "fill the gap left for horny geeks who aren't necessarily looking for dating or a long-term relationship, but who are interested in scouting for sex online and meeting up for no-strings nookie".
