MIAMI – Men who are avid video gamers also last longer in the sack, according to a new study.

Researchers at Sapienza University in Rome found that men who play video games for an hour each day are less likely to suffer from premature ejaculation.

But, as the Daily Mail reports, the longer lovemaking sessions have nothing to do with a gamer's prowess in bed.

It has more to do with a video gamer's lack of desire and ambivalence towards sex.

Almost 400 men between the ages of 18 and 50 took part in the study with more than two thirds identified as gamers.

The study's authors surmise that gamers find higher levels of dopamine by playing video games, most likely causing a tolerance in "ejaculatory reflex and a decreased interest in intercourse."
