I make no secret of the fact that I sex with nerds a huge nerd about a variety of topics. I don’t actually know if that’s true, because I’ve never been other people. I’m not referring to stereotypes of sci-fi-obsessed dudes with inch-thick glasses, pocket protectors, and an inability to talk to women.
To me, being a nerd means being so fascinated by a topic that you are willing to analyze it endlessly. The qualities that make someone a nerd — intense focus, imagination — can be applied in other walks of life, including, of course, the bedroom. When nerds are into something, they are INTO it. Especially when what they’re into is you.
OK, I know, that was horrible. But I couldn’t NOT make that joke, people. Iliad is the best or spend a Saturday mapping out the schematics of Firefly’s Serenity. When a nerd turns that focus on a sexual partner, things are bound to get good. Nerds tend to be very analytical people who like to break ideas down and see how things work. Sometimes, developing a good sexual rapport with someone takes a bit of experimentation. A nerd isn’t going to freak out if it takes a few tries to get things right.
Instead, he or she will see each try as an important data-gathering mission. By the same token, nerds are also not afraid to try new things when it comes to sex — after all, even if the new thing isn’t successful, it’s still teaches them something, right? Ninja Turtles crossover BDSM fanfic, he or she is not going to balk when you suggest something a little adventurous in bed. A little costuming never hurt anything, amirite? The reason that most nerds are obsessed with whatever it is they’re obsessed with is that they have really active imaginations, and this interest, for whatever reason, taps into that. When people become obsessed with historical reenactment or making fan art or collecting memorabilia, it’s because those activities appeal to their own sense of creativity.
You’ll always have something to talk about when the sex is over. When you’re sleeping with a nerd, there’s no need for post-coital conversation to be awkward. You just go right back to talking about whatever your were talking about before, whether it’s debating the relative merits of each Avenger, discussing the latest WWII documentary you’re obsessed with, or whatever else floats your nerdy boat. I make no secret of the fact that I am a huge nerd about a variety of topics. I don’t actually know if that’s true, because I’ve never been other people.
