Unfortunately, it also may lower your sex drive

Guys who play video games are less likely to suffer from premature ejaculation.

Thanks to science, or more specifically a new study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, we know gamers are less likely to arrive early. Seeing a lack of evidence of the relationship between gaming and sexual health, researchers administered questionnaires to nearly 600 men between the ages of 18 and 50: the Premature Ejaculation Diagnostic Tool and the International Index of Erectile Function. The participants were also asked about their lifestyle and gaming habits.

Those who played video games for at least an hour a day had a lower prevalence of premature ejaculation of those who didn’t game. But the gamers were also more likely to report lower sexual desire.

There’s still room for improvement in the study of sexual health and video games, as the researchers themselves conclude interventional studies are needed to confirm their findings. But this study is still illuminating as the first to examine the relationship between games and sexual health, let alone premature ejaculation.
