You know what I mean — casual sex, chicks kissing chicks, and, of course, that whole Girls Gone Wild thing. Typically we take these fictional portrayals of young adult women with grains of salt; sure, some may use college as a chance to explore, but not everyone thinks of college as one huge sex romp, right?
Right. HerCampus.com, an online community for college women, recently conducted a massive survey of more than 2,500 collegiate females between ages 17 and 23. They found that although these women are curious about their sexuality, they’re not exactly going out and getting laid every weekend. Here are some interesting stats:
The V-Card. Surprisingly, 69 percent of the women surveyed didn’t lose their virginity until after they turned 18; 43 percent were still virgins at the time of the survey. In a hyper-sexual culture, this is great news; young women aren’t in any rush to make their relationships physical.
Frequency. As far as the non-virgins of the collegiate world, the majority of them are keeping their numbers low. About 70 percent said they had slept with fewer than three people.
Hook-ups. The term “hooking up” can mean many things to many people; for the purposes of the HerCampus.com survey, it was defined as “making out or more.” With that definition in mind, about half of the respondents had hooked up with 10 or fewer guys.
Girl-on-Girl? Of those surveyed, about 41 percent had swapped spit with another female. Reasons for the smooch included genuine curiosity, a dare, a just-because “joke,” and, of course, because “guys think it’s hot.”
Ladies I’m right am I not and guys keep these in mind when you next visit any girl’s hostel
