Agreed. One other thing I noticed is that the people who really throw themselves into the "nerd" subcultures seem to be really hypersexual. Some of the stories I've read/heard about the big D&D, anime, comic, live action RPG, etc. conventions would fit straight in HBO's Real Sex (the episodes with the really ugly people coupling furiously across the board, not the ones with the attractive model types).

How disturbing. I have met some semi-attractive girls that get into it primarily for all the attention that they would not find elsewhere.

Is it the hyperbolic understatement?

My point was mostly about the sexual aspects, which I only understand from a third-person view. However, I have also read of sexualized Harry Potter subcultures with the characters done up in manga-esque looks, and very sexualized, many of a sodomite nature.

Isn't that an oxymoron? No, the reference of serial killers in conversation.
