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.
Only a minority by 15% which is what I'd call "just" considering the numbers we're talking about.

I'm not sure if it's a majority or a minority, all I know is the percentage decreases every year!

Defintely the majority both boys and girls went to my uni a virgin but lets just say that some of them didnt stay that way very long. Its not something that I'd worry about if you are because there are plenty of others around its no big deal.

Should make this a pole. I reckon it would be a majority actually.
Hmmm... maybe a poll would be the right thing to settle this once and for all.

You think so? If we use a pole instead we can throw in a limbo contest!

I guess I know how you feel since I've been to nightclubs a couple of times and they just seem to be good places to lose your money fast on drinks (oh! and have your white clothes glow under the blacklights!!... sooo cool!)... anyway, I think they're mostly a waste of time. I dunno, maybe clubs in the UK are different?
But getting back to the main point, I've heard all that talk about how most ppl going to uni have already lost their virginity, and i've wondered about whether i'd feel out of it because i haven't.. but i figure it really doesn't 'change the price of chicken' (as they say here)... in otherwords, it doesn't matter! You're not alone.

I haven't lost mine and I can't see that changing any time soon. If that makes me a "geek" then so be it.

I'm part of the minority and I'M PROUD! Sex is something I value and not something wasted on a drunken night of raging hormones. Hopefully, when I go to uni next year, I should go out with a girl for the first time!

I am going to university a virgin and i hope to remain one until my wedding night.
I find i hold much more respect for girls who wait than those who get around fast.

Why on earth did you use a Poisson Distribution to model this? Was it just for the skae of showing off? It will follow a Normal Distribution though, but remember not everyone is exactly 18 when they enter university.

it amazes me how many single people there are at uni in the 1st year, probably the majority in my year are single...(doesn't mean they're all virgins though) i think people just like the freedom of being single when they first get to uni.

just wonderin how many ppl will be going to uni a virgin?
in films like american pie they make out like its such a bad thing to
go to uni a virgin but i cant say im all that arsed!!
just wonderin about ppls opinions of it all?

i couldnt tell you who out of my best mates here is or isnt...by the time most people get to uni they've grown out of the childish "ooooo so and so had sex" phase.
