As much as we often want to give life to our fantasies by rationalizing and entertaining interesting theories, we should probably acknowledge the fact that pornstars and gaming nerds aren't exactly like peanut butter and jelly. Even so, there's nothing wrong with entertaining interesting theories, per se… Just ask Stoya.
Recently interviewed by DasGamer , the 22-year-old adult film star says that a gaming nerd is "her kind of guy," and it's probably because she's a gamer herself. When asked what video games she first played, she cited Heroes of Might and Magic and Civilization , and she even said she thought the latter franchise "went downhill" once Sid Meier jumped ship (sounds like an informed individual, yes?). Stoya doesn't talk about the sexiest video game vixens 'cuz she never played any games with vixens, and in our mind, that only amps up her "nerd" meter. Then they asked her what the industry should do to appeal to more female gamers, and the answer was interesting: basically, if the "chick likes blowing the heads off of invading CGI troops or playing heavy strategy games," then she'll be a gamer. If she's not into that stuff, "no amount of bunnies and hearts is going to change that fact." We always wondered if the ladies would feel insulted by games "designed" for them that are all fluffy and cuddly. It seems to us that Stoya wants to blow sh** up, and no , we're not going to use the word "blow" in any sort of clever play on words. We're just…we're just not.
So anyway, go ahead and check out the full interview at the link above; there are a few more pics of Stoya for added motivation. As for the title, we just have to remain grounded in some sense of reality, or we'll float right off the earth. Sorry.
More proof that the stereotypical gamer aren't what most people think.
She looks good hell II pick females over these games 10 out of 10 times lol. You will be suprised how many women that look good plays video games, II haven't found one that likes video games but there out there.
this is going to get over 100 replys even though this is a stupid article but i guess sex sells ads on this site.
oh god not one of these articles again…..besides that girl in the photo is repulsive!!!
haha shes pretty gnarly, agreed.
She's an anomaly, I know plenty of girls that "game" and they remind me of old beef stew.
Sadly I already knew about her before this article and she's not that great of a pornstar to be honest….BUT anywayz >__> I dunno what to say, just that girls like what they like and if they like games congrats?
O.O wow! liking the blue hair… yes I am…
Hey Ben, off topic. Found another "Can [blank] save the PS3" article. You should make an article about "Can the "Save the PS3" Journalists Realize They Lack Knowledge of the Industry and Originality?" (or something). It's getting so freaking lame, being as the PS3 is doing just fine.
The latest one I saw:
Eh. We've done enough of those. I don't want PSXE to be known for constantly countering such articles, especially when they're THAT worthless and uninformed.
I'll do it when the source is more reputable. 🙂
haha! I'm a dork, I skimmed through the first read. On the second pass I noticed:
"we're not going to use the word "blow" in any sort of clever play on words. We're just…we're just not."
Excellent writing! I always enjoy reading your articles, keep 'em coming!
I have a sneaking suspicion Ben writes the way he speaks.
Suspicion confirmed. 🙂
aha! I can spot em a mile away, cuz I'm one of em 🙂
Whatever, man. Stoya's hot.
Okay, just checked the article, and the pics they have of her kinda suck. But, I've blown more than a couple loads to her artistic endeavors.
And you now officially know more about me than you've ever wanted to. 😀
Doesn't surprise me.
Well, props for the honesty i guess?
troy has a problem
Troy has an addiction to internet Pr0n that only J35u5 can help him with. Or he is a normal red blooded human male. Perhaps God and Darwin can rock-paper-scissors for the answer.
Is it bad that I knew who she was before I read this article, would that be considered cheating?
I don't think it really matters what kind of guy she likes, since nobody with any self-respect would even want to try and have any kind of meaningful relationship with her…
Pornstars: Lookie, but no touchie. I'm disease free and I wanna stay that way. Who would date a porn star?
Depends. The elite stars are tested constantly and are probably cleaner than half the skanks down at the local bar. Big pornstars spend a whole lot of time in the doctor's office getting safe passes.
…don't even ask me why I know that.
BEN WHY DO YOU KNOW THAT?
Ben u like to F***!….I know you!
Anyway,one of my worries about porn is…..
Aren't you scared u might see one of the bad asses u dated back in the day in a porn flick someday?
Is much possible in ya country,that u'll one day see a girl u know acting porn,since the number of new recruits keep increasing.Yea i know some are from different parts of the world,but american porn stars are quite a lot.

I would die a little inside if an ex became a porn star, but then again, if she was a huge hit I'd be telling everyone "Hey, I hit that back in the day." *nudge nudge*
Yea u'd feel cool telling ya peeps u used to bang that beyatch,but u'll be kinda sad though.
I know and been with some bad asses,i worry about their future.
Anytime i watch porn,i feel like;
"Damn,these girls have definitely been loved before,now their cheap whores…..hell, it coulda been ma girl in there….sh**"
I've had my share of girlfriends. Some of them I considered waaaaaaaay outta my league. Sadly though, they get fed up with my gaming and say goodbye. Screw em. I'm not into collecting miniature eggs, or having 4000 stuffed animals everywhere. I also don't have the need for 30 some odd pairs of shoes. Do I hold this against them?
I don't get it either, why should it be frustrating for your woman if you are sitting there having a good time with your games? The only answer that seems to make any sense is that it ignores her, and you are having fun without her.
My wife is equally obsessed with video games as I am. 5 years and counting, couldn't be happier.
I tried for years to date women that were not into gaming at all. It always felt like I was either hiding the full extent of my gaming from them, or they were trying to intervene in my hobby negatively. It was demeaning and until I met my wife, I was sure unfairly hard on myself over it.
Like being in the closet or hiding a drug habit, heh.
she's she's……. beautiful
Hey i'd like her to blow me in any multi-player fps!
As long as the other players are females im with ya.
Get that girl a sandwich, STAT! lol
GDC blows so bad this year that Ben has to write this article.

hey ben, do you know anything about "OnLive"? i've been reading articles about it lately. do you think it's the future of gaming, what's your take?
I'll bet you my PS3 collection he is working on an article about it.
OnLive will be an epic fail.
OnLive seems like a good idea, but I don't think it'll sell to well. Everyones already in enough debt and owns at least 1 console that will carry them for a few more years. If it does sell, it'll be a while before it spreads it's wings. MS, Sony, and Nintendo have all been around long enough to earn alot of trust. It'll take some time.
I completely agree! XD
About this article…she's a little skinny and again, the way the article is written is fantastic and is ALWAYS entertaining to read.
I love this site so much, I access it frequently…via PS3 browser! ^.^
How dare you use pics of my 2 girlfriends in pics like that I can only say in my dreams hahahaha ok may have had some of you going anyone….anyone ….anyone ? ? ? ? oh bugger it ok
Ben is there a drooling pool for all the saliva over this article ?
I am going to have to re read this again tomorrow when I have less drool in my mouth 🙂
What's a "gaming nerd?"
Anyway, when I think of what I'd like to see in a game it's not hearts and rainbows, I'd like to see more beautiful games on the market.
Sure, blowing stuff up is great, but who here loves games like Zelda? Little Big Planet? You get the idea.
My favorite games are always the ones with beautiful visuals, and thought provoking stories behind them (or games that have a great sense of humor)… and in my opinion, there aren't enough of these.
Maybe I'm just hoping for something that will never exist, but I can always dream.
Yes. I'm posting this at 2:00am on a Friday night – Saturday morning. I'm such a party animal.

I can't stand the Wii.
Just because I'm female doesn't mean I only want to play kid games, thanks.
