Does everyone at uni sleep around? Watch

    Does it really happen? It seems like people go to uni and have this idea that they HAVE to go crazy and do things, even if it makes them idiots. So do guys and girls just go out and pull someone - is it really that easy?

    Oh, the old 'is University like Animal House' question


    Sorry, uni is nothing like the meda portrays. You'll probably hate the insane kids in your halls and wish they shut up and chill out post Freshers so you can sleep.

    Oh no it's not about me having sex, it just seems...strange. People who would normally be sensible end up going off the rails, and it seems the only reason is just because it's uni and you have to go off the rails! I was just wondering how accurate my perception is.

    Classic 1st year attitude - most 1st years get that impression when they first join, but this lifestyle hits you hard later on in your uni career. But although not everyone does "sleep around" as you term it, there is a fair amount of that going on. A friend of mine got it on with some mature student about 6 years his senior.

    Like I said, don't fall for this too hard in your 1st year. Yes, there is a lot of stuff going on (fair amount of partying), but not everyone gets involved. The busiest and hardest parties usually happen from October-January each year, before the initial euphoria dies down.

    There are also quite a few people who think parties and sleeping are dumb ideas so don't do them.

    Well, I say quite a few.. I don't know how many there are, but I highly doubt that I'm the only one.

    I think what it comes down to is very simple: If you want to 'be a lad' or if you want to party hard, you can, and there will be other like-minded people with whom to do so. But if you don't want to, then there will also be similar people to you.

    Universities have thousands of students in, so there's a plentiful range of options in this regard.

    Yeah, I agree - at least that's what I've found. I have group of friends who like to go out and to this sort of stuff, but I also hang around with others who don't party. I guess it's all about trying to find the right balance

    It does happen and in my limited experience of friends who have done it, they generally come to regret it.

    I just realised how badly I worded my post. I'm incredibly tired, it would seem.

    Not really depends on the person but some people do think that is okay to sleep around just because they're at uni.

    If you're the kind of person who slept around before uni then you'll no doubt carry on.

    If you were the kind of shy, quiet person who couldn't pull a rope before uni, let alone a member of the opposite sex, then don't expect that to change any time soon.

    Just want to add that the degree of sexual activity you are likely to have upon starting university is negatively correlated with how highly ranked your university is.

    Some people do it, some people don't. But it's not as bad as the media portrays.

    Yes it does happen. I live with a houemate who is very loose. She must go out strip on the dance floor. She gets more action then me! Heard her say to her friend that she was not happy that some guy didn't want to sleep with her.
