A friend recommended this book, The Gamer's Sex Guide, a few weeks ago. I broke up with my girlfriend (hopefully a temporary thing) and decided to read this $3 book, and I thought of this site for obvious reasons. Well, I enjoyed myself, even though it only took me like two or three hours to get through. The first few chapters are funny in an inane kind of way, but the latter ones are actually thought provoking, which I really wasn't expecting. The Amazon page says the book only came out like a month ago but I wouldn't have heard about it unless a friend had told me about it. For the price of a comic book, you can do way worse.

Oh yeah, here's the lawl-worthy cover. It's not exactly subtle, is it?



Btw, I used to watch PP back in high school, and I'm bummed out like everyone else that they haven't released new episodes in forever.

Sorry to disappoint! No, I'm not a bot. I just enjoyed (most of) this book, and I figured you guys might want to take a look.

You were wrong.
Gamers lives aren't 'pathetic'.

Women often try to belittle men and boys who game, because men and boys who game are exercising independence and not dedicating their life to serving THEIR needs.
Just as the pill freed women to have sex when they want, gaming offers men an alternative to the boredom/lust/insanity that draws them to women.

Gaming and a healthy sex life are not mutually exclusive but serious gaming requires srs attention and money, that might otherwise be wasted on a girl for an hour or two of sex every other night (or week if unlucky) and many hours of emotionally unstable females having tantrums.

We don't need women.
They however, DO need men.

Link me to a book on the 'Pathetic Lives of Slutwalk Marching Girls' and at least I'll have something to laugh at.

MaxDamage, that's exactly one of the reasons gaming lacks any sort of mainstream respect. I don't know if that's your actual belief or just staying in some type of PP character for these forums, but I really wasn't expecting something so overtly sexist. It's almost like I'm on Xbox Live or something.

lol. Welcome to xbox live.

3 dollar book that can be read in 3 hours? Sounds like the book for me.

Love how the resident tough guy is happy to talk trash on an internet forum but back pedals as soon as he is called out. Typical coward. No doubt he'll respond to this with excessive bravado in order to restore his rightful place as a fully fledged internet badass.

The attack on 'pathetic gamers' obviously is sexist.
That's the point.

By mainstream respect you mean 'respect from women'.
Which we really don't give a shit about seeing as how you owe us several thousand years worth, backdated.

If you think what I said is sexist you need to join the goddamn real world.

Would you mind giving us a summary of the main points? I don't really feel like paying 12+ dollars for shipping for a 3 dollar book.

I don't see why you'd have to pay $12 in shipping for an e-book.

Because that's the only reason people date (for sex). The difference between that book and your post is that the book is a joke, but I think you're nursing some thinly veiled contempt and hurt and believe your philosophy quite earnestly.

What the f*ck tangent are you on?
THE BOOK IS ABOUT SEX LIFE NOT DATING.
MORON.

The book isn't just a 'joke' it's an attack on a lifestyle, predominantly because it is male, using shaming language.

No tolerance for this, not ever.

Fuck feminism.

I can completely agree with either of your sides. What's up with that?

Well, now I know who would benefit the most from this book. I also like how you censored the first fuck but not the second. Seriously. When you say f*ck, you're putting the word "fuck" into all of our minds, so you might as well just say fuck.

I didnt see the use of the word nigger, so you dont get to fling the Louis CK clip around. Besides, thats just inane picking at punctuation and writing styles. It addresses nothing he said. Dont you even bother turning this on me; I didnt even read the entire thread or his post for that matter.

Who the hell would pay for this? It's 89 pages in Kindle format - you could probably just find it on pastebin and scroll through, I can't even see extracts from the book on Amazon to decide if it's worth my time - even in a real bookstore you have the ability to do that. For inane bullshit, I think I'll google articles and funny gifs of kittens instead, without having any example text to refer to, it seems to directly insult the one demographic here and take a giant leak onto it.

I don't know about that, it completely depends on the person and their orientation/religious background.

Same concept, different word. Doesn't have much to do with the OP, but what's the point of censoring one letter when everyone knows exactly what he's talking about? Exactly.

Also, the thread title was a joke. You guys really do act persecuted though with the amount of butthurt I'm witnessing.

Ultimately, this statement is true. We date for sex, regardless or orientation/religious background. The ultimate goal is to find someone who were compatible with and become serious with and/or marry them. And then what do we do? Have sex. What other goal is there? And don't say friendship/companionship or any of that other crap. Sure that's stuff you can experience but it's not what keeps you coming back for more. Dating sucks and if it weren't for the promise of sex, most of us would have given up on that whole scene a long time ago...
