A new survey commissioned by GameHouse, the RealNetworks video-game division, finds that women who play online games are more social than those who don’t and also have sex more frequently than their non-gaming counterparts. Social scientists may forever debate the question of cause and effect on this one.

The survey of more than 2,000 U.S. adults by Harris Interactive took into account games played on computers, social networking sites and mobile devices. “Maybe if we all watched a little less TV and played more games online, we’d all be having a little more sex,” said Matt Hulett of GameHouse, in a news release announcing the results.

Toribash is a ragdoll-physics, turn-based fighting game. Create your own martial arts movies in single player sandbox mode, or join the competition in the multi player modes. The focus is on tactics rather than reaction and button mashing. The game features physics, full dismemberment, decapitation and comic style blood. Lovely!
