Amsinence does not require a condom at all.

That having been said, how accurate is the poll? I'm sure that male college students would NEVER inflate the number of their, um, 'conquests'......

1997 College Alcohol Study

Why is an alcohol survey so concerned about sexual habits and living arrangements?

I tend to believe that these studies are corrupting in and of themselves. When my wife was a student in college, she went to the Student Health Center due to an illness. The Health Center had her fill out a very detailed survey about all kinds of sexual activity. She said she was embarrassed by the questions but had to complete the survey before being treated.

A real question is, how is 'sex' defined. These condom studies are suspect unless they specifically include or exclude condom usage during oral sex. That would certainly be the most common form of homosexual sex between males and yet these studies too often never clarify what is 'sex'. In this college study, I'm going to imagine that condom usage during oral sex is minimal regardless of the sexes of the partners.

"Although almost three-quarters (71%) said they were sexually experienced..."

Seventy-one percent? They must have inadvertently used data from middle schol students.

Too early to spell. Obviously, "schol" should be "skool." :-)

Alcohol consumption and sexual activity are directly proportional among college students. If they're not using condoms, it's probably because they're too inebriated to be able to get the package opened.

Men who only had sexual intercourse with other men were less likely to use condoms than their peers who only had sex with women. The reason is unclear, but it may be a response to the development of HIV

I'm not a PHD, but wouldn't the fact that a guy has yet to get another guy pregnant have something to do with it?

Yup. It's up there with the studies of binge drinking on college campuses.

Gov't spent millions to discover that college students drink beer. And occasionally, they drink it to excess. Imagine that.

Of course, I've never even tasted beer. I once knew a guy who did, though. ;)

Of course they never cut to the chase in these studies. To be specific, the reason condoms aren't popular with college students is using one is like washing your feet with your sox on. At least that's what college age friends tell me.

Was the question of "satisfaction" and condom use even asked? Probably the most relevant issue among this age group, IMHO.

I would tell "every" person as I have said before, having sex is like playing Russian Roulette with a 6 shooter and 5 bullets in the chamber. If latex gloves can't protect you from anthrax a condem wont protect you from aids, do the research it's there. This is your life and it is about choices and you do have free will.

gosh, if they're that wasted, there's probably not even any need to worry...
