I'm sorry but ROFL. ORMs trade programmer ease for too much query performance imo. In all my experience it makes a lot more sense to get closer to the data with SQL than to use something like an ORM in the same way that C is faster than Python, SQL is closer to the metal like C is, and an ORM is more like Python -- quicker to prototype in but not fast for this use-case.
