Words: they fail. Earlier this year, a dating site for gamers launched: date-a-gamer.co.uk. Apparently, when gamers get together they really, really like asking for sex. So, the team behind the site have gone balls deep: to the point of no return. They’ve launched a separate site purely for gamer hookups: www.shagagamer.com.
Think of it as a bit like grindr. But with grinding. For loot.
Tom Thurlow founded date-a-gamer, and launched shag-a-gamer. The new site appeared out of the ashes of date a gamer, where, explains Tom, everyone was just shagging anyway.
“People were using the Date a Gamer site to meet up for sex anyway, but this way they have a space where they can do this more openly in an arena they are comfortable in, in other words, online.”
So: to catch up. For commitment: date-a-gamer. For shagging: shag-a-gamer.
This is the death of romance. At £19.99 per month.
Before you get too excited about boffing a Super Meat Boy fan, be aware that the majority of the people using shag-a-gamer probably aren't gamers. The site uses an off the shelf back-end called WhiteLabelDating which throws people from many different sites into one larger pool.
P.S. There are a wobbly bits behind the login. Not safe for work.
