    at my school it must have been only a quarter to a third who weren't. But then that is an all boys public school for you. As Chandler once said "sex at high school for me would have meant a serious lifestyle choice" (we weren't boarders in the middle of a field sumwhere but you get the picture)

    I remember some student organisation once did a survey on this very subject.... I think the results were basically the better the uni academically, the more people that arrived as virgins. Oxbridge did have the most virgins, but quite a few had the majority of entrants virgins.

    Well, I've been going to all-girls Catholic schools all my life (14 years so far) so i guess you could say i've grown up in an environment where everyone around you thinks it's normal (and right) to stay a virgin until marriage... so i don't know whether my opinion will change when i go to uni but I doubt it.

    Well I'm catholic and have been through catholic education and I'm still a virgin but it's not really a religious thing with me.
    I've had the opportunity - a 2year relationship and an offer from a very creepy guy but I've chosen not to take it until I'm clear on what my beliefs about it are.
    I mean, it can't grow back but it can be taken at any time....

    About 2/3 of my friends have gone to uni virgins.
    It doesn't really matter - it's not like you have a sticker on your forehead.

    As if... That's ridiculous. The vast majority of 18 year olds are NOT virgins.

    That's probably right as the average age to lose it is 17, so maths would mean it's probably the minority...just.

    Hmm. Since I just purchased a copy of Mathematica, lets evaluate this... So let's assume that the ages of people who loose there virginity follows a Poisson Distribution with a mean of 17 (which I assume according to you is correct).

    Code:
    << Statistics`DiscreteDistributions`
    dist1 = PoissonDistribution[17]
    N[CDF[dist1, 18]]
    
    0.654958
    0.654958*100 = 65.5% (3sf)

    So, 65.5% of people have lost there virginity by 18. That would leave 34.5% (about a third) left who still haven't lost there virginity, a clear minority.
