A survey found that only 35% of Harvard freshman had sex prior to attending college. That sounds low but I think it’s actually totally normal and nothing to poke fun about. 81% said they lost their v-cards in high school, 62% said they had only one sexual partner. Millennials are such prudes these days. JK. I wonder what accounts for these numbers or if they are in actuality any lower than prior generations?
Here’s another tidbit about our LGBT friends, “Respondents who identify as homosexual or bisexual are more likely than their heterosexual counterparts to report that they have lost their virginity. Forty-five percent of homosexuals and 56 percent of bisexuals reported having sex versus 35 percent of heterosexuals. Of those freshmen who say that they are questioning their sexuality, only 20 percent said they have had sex.”
Oh yeah, get it, get it. Private school students were also more likely than public school students to be getting their freaks on. It must be those uniforms, holla. I think these numbers are normal and reflect the general landscape of where I went to school. Not everyone is interested or exposed to opportunities where they can have sex, some people don’t want to be, some people do. There are so many different reasons that attribute to these numbers and they should all be respected.
