Sadly, some men need a reminder of their need to start making love to their wives.
Technology has ushered in stimulating entertainment that can get a significant percentage of males addicted to viewing the content. Such addictions can rewire the male brain, causing a drop in interest in making level in real life. I have already written about the devastating effects of online porn use. In fact, I wrote an ebook on how to overcome it, which I am giving away for free.
I thought this time I would discuss another trend out there: men who addicted to video games to the detriment of their marriages. That’s right, a portion of husbands would rather stay cozy with their Playstations than to start making love to their wives. That’s where we are at in our society.
Those who are not familiar with this growing development in our culture need to become aware of it. Those folks need to realize that the vast majority of modern video games are very visually stimulating. The games you might remember from your youth: Pong, PacMan, Mario Brothers, etc. have nothing compared to today’s games when it comes to life-like visual effects. In fact, many video game companies these days hire professionals to ensure their games cause dopamine and other chemicals to be released while playing their games. Also, did you know that addiction to video games accounts for up to 15% of divorces?!
It may be a bit dated, but I came across an article describing a study done in 2009 in the U.K. The researchers polled 1,130 men and learned a startling statistic. They found that one-third (as in, 1 in 3) men would prefer to play video games than to have sex with their partners!
This phenomenon can be found in the US too. In Seattle clinicians established a rehab center for such men. This is growing and may turn into an epidemic, it seems. Virtual reality headsets are becoming more common place. For that matter, our perverse society has a market for sex robots. Given this, I think it is fair to say we have a crisis on our hands in this culture.
I hereby challenge any husbands out there who are addicted to playing video games to put down your remotes. Here are seven thoughts on how you can start making love to your wife soon, to ensure you don’t lose her.
1. Get Exercise Daily
This will increase the testosterone in your system and thereby increase your sex drive.
2. Eat Healthy
This will give you more energy, so you don’t “veg” out in front of the TV, in place of spending time with your wife and family.
3. Get More Sleep
A common characteristic of gaming addicts remains their lack of sleep. Get a solid 7-8 hours of sleep. Thank me later.
4. Practice Mortification
What if mortification, you ask? I explain in my free ebook—download it now! Basically, you will learn how to strengthen your will, so that you don’t give in to your temptations.
5. Spend More Time with Your Wife
You fell in love with her at one point. Spend more time with her, go on dates, and fall in love with her all over again. The more you love her, the more time you will want to spend with her.
6. Experience More Fulfilling Sex
If you are experiencing E.D., due to your video game addiction, you are not alone. Still, your wife should not have to compete with your Xbox for her attention and affection. If you allow yourself to detox from playing video games, your sex will become more satisfying.
7. Answer the Call of Manhood and of a Husband
Face it, man. You are called to sacrifice. You are asked to make sacrifices for the improved welfare of your wife and children. Grow up, ditch the Xbox and Playstation. Take control of your life and get in there and start making love to your wife. She wants you. She needs you. She loves you. She misses you. Time to man up.
What do you make of the men who prefer playing video games to having sex?
