Starting university can be daunting for many as it ticks off a whole list of firsts: first time living away from home, first time looking after yourself, and for many students university will be the first time they have sex. According to the 6th annual Felix Survey for Imperial, students starting university having never had sexual intercourse before varies from course to course. The survey (2016) found that Business School students were the most inexperienced (29% are virgins), while Materials students were the most sexually active, with just 7% of students having not had sex. Whatever your experience level when headed to uni, it’s really important to take sexual health seriously - so it’s time to get clued up. Wrap up. We’ve all seen those viral videos of girls adorning condoms on their limbs, but getting the right fit for condom sizing is really important. If a condom is too small, it’s going to hurt your fella, and if it’s too big it’s going to fall off, leading to a risk in pregnancy and exposure to STIs. A worrying 75% of students in the Felix survey admitted that the were less likely to use a condom during a one night stand, and 44% of students admitted to never taking an STI test. The survey also found that 20% of medics used the pulling out method as contraception, which is in no way fool-proof.
