- 60% of students have had a one night stand

- 26% have tried BDSM          

- 21% have slept with a housemate

- 23% have sex at least four times per week

- 78% of men have been sent sexual pictures

- 62% are happy with their sex lives

The sex habits of the nation’s students have been laid bare – quite literally – in a new survey.

According to the newly released batch of sex confessions, students would most like to have sex with Channing Tatum and Scarlett Johansson... not necessarily at the same time. But probably.  

That students want to get it on with these two standard  examples of perfect DNA is probably the most predictable part of the survey, though.

Fantasy celeb-shagging aside, it looks like you lot are getting increasingly adventurous when it comes to sex – BDSM, sex outside and one night stands are all more popular than they were a year ago.

The results of the Student Beans (sorry, Hexjam) annual Student Sex Survey also revealed that 23% of students are having sex at least four times per week, and 62% are satisfied with their sex lives. 

Hmm. We’re not sure if we believe this.

There are high numbers all over the survey, though. Allegedly, 60% of students have had a one night stand (up from 51% last year), 37% have had sex with someone a friend has already slept with, 26% have got themselves all tied up with BDSM (up from 17% last year), 21% have shagged a housemate and 15% have had a threesome. 

A naughty 3% have even got it on with a lecturer.

Also, the most popular sex position for students is doggystyle – 29% named it their position of choice. It’s more popular with women than men though – 31% named it their favourite, whilst 29% of men preferred the girl on top.

47% of students have had anal sex, up slightly from 43% from last year, whilst 54% have had sex in public – up from just 29% last year.

As Hexjam asks: “Where did this new-found confidence come from? Are there now more pillows in hedges?”

The results were taken from the answers of 5,802 responses, 48% of whom are in a relationship.

The majority of students (39%) have slept with between two and five people since starting university, whilst 12% have slept with between six and nine, 7% have slept with between ten and 14 and a very prolific 8% have slept with more than 15.

Phew. 

1% of those questioned don’t know how many people they’ve hit the sack with (!), a lonely 3% have had no action at all, and 30% have slept with just one person. Aww.

And of course, the survey wouldn’t be complete without condering the sexy digital footprint left by today’s students. 78% of men have been sent sexual pictures by a partner, 27% have filmed sex or sexual acts, and 55% have sent racy pictures via Snapchat.

Whilst we’d applaud the adventurousness of the nation’s student population, we’d also like to point out that they might not be going about it in exactly the right way – because when it comes to condoms, 18% of those questioned never (yes that’s right, never) use them, a further 35% only use them sometimes, and only 20% get tested for STIs at least once a year.

That’s a poor effort, guys. You don’t want to start getting itchy in the pants area, do you?

Probably not. If you’re worried, visit our Sex & Relationships advice page here.
