A third of men would rather play video games than have a night of passion with their partners, reveals a new UK study.
And this rises to two thirds if there's a chance of playing a brand new game.
Reasons men gave for choosing to twiddle with their control pads rather than opting for romance ranged from partners "being hard to please" to "not being as much fun" as playing computer games.
To reach the conclusions, specialist PlayStation3 website questioned 1,130 men who were in relationships.
"I, like many other men, am an avid gamer. But even I find these results startling," The Mirror quoted spokesman Mike Elsmore, as saying.
