The Largest and Most Comprehensive College Dating and Sex Survey Uncovers Surprising Behaviors of Students In and Out of the Bedroom
Date:10/15/2008

- OkCupid.com polled 10,000 college students from across the country to discover their attitudes and behavior on topics ranging from infidelity and promiscuity to pregnancy tests and abortion -

NEW YORK, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- This survey, taken by 10,000 college students just released by OkCupid.com, takes a revealing look at what students are up to when not hitting the books and most likely are not telling their parents.

Among the Findings:

MYTH: Blondes have more fun

False! Redheads are having the most fun in college and are the most sexually adventurous of all the hair types. 8% more redheads are willing to have a threesome than more conservative blonde and brunette co-eds. They like their look and are proud to show it as 24% take naked pictures and post sexy videos online. With that fiery hue comes confidence, as they are 6% more confident in bed and have a significant conviction they are "better in bed" than others. The fun ends after a night out when redheads are more likely to pass out 12 or more times a year from drinking.

First a tattoo, now what?!

For many parents, when a child gets a tattoo they think there's nothing worse. Now we know that students with tattoos are two times more likely to have a STD and those students are twice as likely to having had to take a pregnancy test.

Vegans don't limit themselves to all things

Those that avoid eating meat, enjoy oral sex more than carnivores. Female vegans are also more likely to feel that size does matter. They may say no to meat, but they may want to consider saying no to another round of drinks, as they are two times more likely to pass out from alcohol than non-vegans.

"These statistics point to a shift in norms and the dismantling of taboos. Whereas "sex tapes" and nude photos were once considered the domain of porn, it's now becoming normal to post online for all the world to see. Novelty, exhibitionism and the search for new thrills are driving this new generation of pleasure-seekers," says Ian Kerner, relationship expert and New York Times bestselling author of She Comes First, He Comes Next, and Be Honest, You're Not That Into Him Either.

Sam Yagan, co-founder of OkCupid.com, explains, "We wanted to carefully examine the ins and outs of college students' sexual experiences. Pun intended. College students are infamously secretive with their families, and these students answered provocative questions with unique candor. We now have a comprehensive understanding, so that kids and parents alike can know what to expect upon entering college."

This survey is comprised of over one million compelling data points. We ran multiple correlations with topics including, but not limited to: do blondes really have more fun; do tattoos mean your child is more likely to get into trouble e.g. drugs, promiscuous sex; are band geeks more sexually active; does exercise relate to college students self-confidence in bed; does distance from home relate to sexual activity?

Expert testimonies from the co-founder of OkCupid.com, psychologists, relationship experts and authors are available to discuss what these findings mean for you and your community. Please contact Alexandra Malizia at 212.633.0390 for full survey results or to set up interviews.
