Great idea in all sincerity. At the very least you know the other person is as much a geek as you are even if you have to do the walk of shame the next day XD

So it's for gamers huh.

Do I have to buy the anal DLC or does that come with the pre-order?

This applies to everything you perceive and then do - it's all driven be chemistry.

Am I a bit too old fashioned in believing in free will and the capacity for man to dictate his life by reason and logic? Sure, determinism is popular -- but all it is is an abstract philosophical idea assuming everything in the brain can be predicted. I don't know, I'm tired of people being so defeatist and unable to dedicate themselves to something other than impulse.

There's really no need to be judgmental about people doing things that they like, but you don't approve of. It's really none of your business.

I like to be an ass. I'm not going to walk into the TravelLodge where they're mindlessly romping and pull them apart, but I'm still going to make my displeasure public. I don't see what's wrong about making public what I dislike; I'm not forcing it to be heard. Just inanely shouting out my embittered tripe.

If sex was anything like a QTE I think I'd have rather stayed a virgin.

TOUCH BOOB TO NOT DIE!

... Yeah my boyfriend didn't laugh either.

To be completely honest most guys wouldn't be averse to the idea of needing to touch a boob to not die. :P

However, you only have a split second to click left mouse button, or she pulls out a .44 magnum and shoots you.

Oh, it's your "thing". Fair enough, affectations can be amusing for some people. Carry on.

I loath sex. I said it. I'm not condemning those who use this to be tossed into the sun, I'm just voicing my disapproval of the thing. Sure people are free to mindlessly romp about, I just think it's a rather disgusting and very much a primitive thing; a mammalian drive that functions by releasing chemicals into our brains. Don't you find the concept of actions being motivated by by dopamine, adrenaline, and hormones rather perturbing?

I'm sick of being told in real life and on ze' internet that I'm stuck in the past because I'm tired of seeing people wasting their time, effort, and productivity on meaningless pleasure. If one is stupid enough to waste such a significant portion of his earnings to be able to use this service, and then to spend time trawling, travelling, and doing the deed? Yes. I think they are a pretty big dunderhead. Especially when there's a substitute in the form of Kleenex and the Internet. Condescend me all you like, I'm just tackling this through a rather rational approach.

Interesting ideas, but the fact is that EVERYTHING we do is because of our body "releasing chemicals into our brains". Here are some examples of things that you wouldn't enjoy without said evil chemicals: driving fast cars, lying in the sun on a beach, reading a fiction book, gaming, or pretty much anything. Despite what religions might preach, we're just sophisticated animals. If you aren't religious, I'd evaluate where you got such negative ideas about sex.

I'm finding that I require to use it more and more fequently.

I don't know if that's a bad thing or not.

Typical hedonistic bullshit that's all too common in the UK today. It seems they're appealing to the idiot market, which is certainly the type of company one will find through this.

Heaven forbid adults should seek sex for pleasure. Why, just the knowledge that said individuals are seeking a harmless thrill is enough to turn the sky grey. Oh and not to mention that any such person must be an idiot. I mean, us intelligent folk never go after meaningless fun--we're too busy being all mature and snoody, amirite. Let's pretend to be better human beings and prance around on our highchairs some more.

Is your projector powered by coal or steam? 'Cause it's pretty damn powerful.

Can't tell if trolling or just... I'll bite. Having a wank and saying it's a substitute for sex is is tantamount to playing CoD and saying it's like actually being on the front lines of war.

If you think what you just said is a rational approach to sex then well... you're pretty thick. The only conclusions I can draw from your post are you've never gotten close to sex, are incredibly bad at it or you're fucking mental. I mean you're having a wank over people having sex for a start, paradox much? What you essentially just said was "Sex is disgusting, but you should have a shifty over porn, because that's okay, regardless of the fact that the people in it are having sex. Derrp."

But then perhaps you're right; that's it folks, we should all stop having sex because it's disgusting and only done by thick people, our species should die now, no more people, we're done. Why did I not see this before?!

I don't get it... how does "being a gamer" actually impact how great it would be to bang someone? I don't see how they correlate.

That's what I was thinking. Aiming a dating site at gamers makes sense, since common interests are a good thing to have when dating. Aiming a hook up site at gamers, on the other hand, really makes no sense. If it's really nothing but sex, no plans to do anything after the fact, what does gaming have to do with it?

if Im going to attempt to apply logic to this thing.....

mabye its saying "we are all kind of in the same situation here" share similar interests...want to have sex...a comfort thing

think you may need a parachute....that hoarse your on is so high you could try base jumping

seriously "I dont like it" doesnt make somthing bad, sex is biologically hardwired into us. its fun and mostly harmless, you may not like it but you can't cirticise us for it

As for OT: I mean, it's good for them and everything but I wont pretend I didn't giggle.

TOUCH BOOB TO NOT DIE!

... Yeah my boyfriend didn't laugh either.

Isn't it meant to be touch left arm -> right, touch left leg -> right etc etc?

Love the comparison for gamer-QTE's and sex. But I expect this site is for younger people who will be socially (face to face) inept future generation rather than more *ahem* mature well adjusted people who can engage in regular outside activities.

It might be easier to just hire a hooker in this case

It's the internet people. Is this really even surprising/disgusting/disappointing anymore?

Because video games, the kind this website you are a member of center around, are more than just a mindless romp, feeding off chemical reactions in our brain that cause the sensation of fun, thought, fear and other such emotions, right?

Smell that? It smells like a wicked burn setting an argument ablaze!

Yeah I agree with Daystar. This is just terrible.

I don't see the problem here. I just think it would be better with an F2P model.

EDIT: forgot half my post

Its funny to watch a site that will close down within the year get started. Its like watching a slow moving car crash. These "adult stuff for gamers" sites never work. No sweaty neckbeard likes being told he's a sweaty neckbeard who can't get laid without money. The whole concept of this site is ridiculous.

I was unaware that more Nathan Fillion could ever be a bad thing.

As a guy who is currently single and with no immediate dating prospects+unwilling to spend tons of money going out out clubbing and finding dates on the night which at my best, have like a 10% success ratio, this...is actually kinda tempting.

From what I can see, this'll only attract the people too ugly/socially inept/eternally adolescent to use a regular hookup site. So I guess it's nice that they've got a shot now too.

The thing I worry about with stuff like this is, what proportion of people do you think will be serial killers?

Captcha; how sweet

No, not really captcha.

Walk of Shame take your pick

I feel sorry for anyone woman on that website. It must be a complete and utter sausage-fest on there, full of guys who must think the girls in that picture (and someone get the one on the right some fake eyebrows, she's scaring me now) are the sort of girls who are on the website.

But this kind of fun doesn't come cheaply. Browsing is free, and yes, I browsed - hey, gamers get urges too - but to be able to actually interact with anyone costs 19.95 ($31.20) per month, or 90 ($141) for a year. I don't have any experience in the economics of this sort of thing, but that sounds like an awful lot of money just to be able to fire off a few dirty IMs to random people on the internet.

Back in my day, talking to people of the opposite gender cost nothing. It was called "leaving the house."

is it me or does it seem kind of one sided gendder-wiese? and why is having sex shameful? why is having abig night out and coming otu worse for wear shameful? thats they those kids do right? I mean if you didnt youd be considered weird..I mean WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

seriously people have some weird veiws when it comes to sex

Ha. As if real gamers would spend that much money on dating. A real, hardcore, mature gamer (such as myself) would invest that money into an MMO.

Um, no seriously though. This is weird. And funny.

Straw man... yawn.

Your concept of determinism being an absolute is an equal straw-man. The idea of freedom of will versus determinism is primarily a philosophical argument with the latter camp liking to claim the evidence (ie, synapses and complex chemical processes in the brain existing is proof positive that humans will always be slave to instinct); the fact of the matter is is that there is no empirical evidence favouring either camp. It essentially boils down to, again, a philosophical debate. Which I suppose you don't want to indulge in, having adopted the age-old tactics of the garden variety pseudo-intellectual in proclaiming any opposing argument that challenges your beliefs a strawman and then proceeding to be condescending. Forgive me for that latter ad hominem, it just upsets me so that so many are defeatist regarding their choices and fates today.

Clearing the Eye:

I'm not anti-emotion or such. I'm not opposed to having fun or anything of the like; but to say video games are mindless is something I and many others would dispute. I enjoy fiction, gaming, and such because they provoke me and they're easy ways to experience emotions, challenging ideas, and scenarios I wouldn't find without leaving the house and finding a gun store that will arm me to the teeth. Intercourse is merely that ape-like desire to create more offspring roaring away, the most primitive of them all. The outcome is always the same, you climax. The only difference is is that it takes a huge amount of time, money, and emotional investment before you do it; and when you could adequately smite the urges that drive one to seek it in the first place quickly, efficiently, and in a safe environment then the entire malarkey seems wasted.

I'm not a cyberman or such; I just find that we really are so irrational in our approach to seeking pleasure.

Smell that? It smells like a wicked burn setting an argument ablaze!

I've got the fire extinguisher of heavenly truth and justice (and egomania). Don't you worry, dear.

Just as a note to everyone, I don't mean to be hostile or uppity. Please don't think otherwise.

CosmicCommander:
-

"I get A, B and C from video games. The method in which I achieve them and the results themselves are better than what others get from sex."

Cool assumption. You gonna stop pretending to be better than everyone else (don't even pretend you're not trying) and get around to showing us why what you like is any more important than that which others choose to fill their short lives with?

Seriously, we've all seen the act a million times and we all grew up with at least one friend who thought they knew so much more than everyone else. "Yes, yes, we know. You've told us all a million times before about why we want to date that guy/girl." We'd say. "You've already explained our primitive urge to form social bonds." We'd assure them. "Can we just enjoy life now?"

Look, I seriously don't give a single shit in the entire world what you get out of video games and how you feel about them. But don't you dare, even for a second, tell others that the means of their fulfillment are inferior to your own. Whatever you get from pixels on a screen is just fine and dandy. But don't speak for others and don't assume to know why individuals like what they like or why they like it. Your attitude is as obnoxious as it is crude.

I've got news for you, your little adventures and experiences from video games are no more or less valuable than whatever the fuck Joe Blow or Jane Doe get from sex. If you want, I can get a real adventurer in here and you can tell them all about how silly their little pursuit of happiness is--just play games! Maybe I can find a Buddhist monk and you can explain how pointless their spiritual zen is, hm?

CosmicCommander:

Your concept of determinism being an absolute is an equal straw-man.

Actually, it's your concept of determinism that you want to rage against. I never said such thing which is why it's a straw-man; it seems you agree.

Be nice if you actually picked up the link as well. You would have noticed the definitions goes for both genders <.< either way you are walking home is the stink of your own indiscretion. Nothing to do with what you have/don't have between your legs.

This is so funny, what on earth.

Why is this even a thing?

Why are gamers different from normal people.

I don't even...

I'm going to go off on a limb and guess that the gender ratio will come nowhere close to being balanced.

Hell, mathematically speaking, that ratio probably doesn't even exist.

just sayin thanks for the segregation.

You know, if its just casual sex, why is it just for gamers, are you trying to say gamers are gods in bed or something? And more importantly why does being a gamer entitle you to casual sex.

The people (or more appropriately the things) that sign up will be expecting to see this:

and this:

But what they will get will be this:

and only this:

I just think that if $140 or whatever a year is a signifigant portion of your earnings, you've got it worse than me, and I can barely afford shampoo.
Still, I don't honestly see anything wrong with this site, just helps narrow things down for people a little bit.
After all I'm pretty sure getting rejected "cuz you're a gamer" is a pretty universal thing out there, women who game however, less likely to reject you, and rare to find in pubs/clubs/bars/other places where you go to find a fuck buddy offline... just saying.

I personally don't really have a need for the site in question, I tend to ask people out who are involved in stuff I am involved in, or customers at work sometimes,(seriously you'd never guess it but even when working at a gas station, you get a lotta girls who want you... or is this just my experience?) and date them, then sex is an added benefit, and when I'm not dating I can satisfy myself, and I take no shame in that, what must be done must be done.

so my resounding response to this whole situation is simply "meh".
