robohobo: So then the white and wealthy are the ones most likely to have std's? Oh wait, no, just the opposite.


Most college campuses actually are pretty much the opposite of the general population in this regard.

PillsHere: relcec: Deedeemarz: Seriously, do researchers really believe that college kids tell the truth in these surveys? And yes I am aware there are maths to control for lying on these surveys but I don't think even math is up to the job of separating truth from lies when dealing with the alcohol-blurred memories/regrets/fantasies of a bunch of college kids.

a researcher did not write that.
it was a sociologist.
at occidental college of all places.

sociologists in America get paid to create unprovable/undisprovable theories about how patriarchal capitalist society has been f*cking everyone over since we left the communal-hunter-gatherer-stage-utopia-stage 10,000 years ago because *competition*, that's why, and utopia communism is within our reach if we could just see through these damn racist/sexist/classist/heighist/skinny/ culturist/atractivist LENSES stuck on everyones eyes!

I wouldn't hold my breath for real research from that lot if I was you.

I'm curious what that means to you in regards to this article.


and I'm curious what you think it means to me.

"black students are more strongly in favor of gender equality"

I lived with a black dude in college who was on a practice squad in the NFL for a few years.  I think girls thought farking him was a requirement to graduate, at one time or another, they all did.  Still in awe of that guy.  One thing that guy did that I think is good advice for everybody is to never talk about who you hooked up with.  Discretion pays off.

poe_zlaw: I was white and wealthy in college and I got to bang tons of slutty white women. As well as a couple of Latinas and Asians, a Hawaiian chick, a couple of sistas, made sweet love to a half sista (I married her), a Jewish girl with the biggest and best tits I ever got to do great things too. Even a couple of poor fat ones.

What does all that mean?


It mean strangely enough more people in college were losers than we thought. Mean I figured if I could go to a party, hook up and get laid, anyone one could. I appear to be wrong.

\Wasn't prone to run off my mouth afterwards.

the thing that works is to drive around with your windows down blaring pseudo-rap with lots of bass so that the car body vibrates -- this alerts the girls to the opportunity to par-tay

as you pass a girl walking down the road, slow down to match her pace and nod your head as though to say wassup, but don't actually say wassup, let the nod do the talking -- chicks dig this
 
2013-07-20 03:53:43 AM
if a woman wants laid: just TALK to men or women. All it takes. Conversation.

das: fullyautomatic: Being just out of college, I can attest that the term "hookup" doesn't mean just sex anymore like it used to. Weird how that changed, since hookup used to specifically mean just sex, usually without any of the other bases. Also, anyone can have sex in college, regardless of color or cash.

Hell, that was true 35 years ago, at least for me and everyone I knew!!!


poorer and fatter than I should have been, I averaged more than 2 a year.  Of course our president was getting blown in the oval office, so we just followed along.
 
2013-07-20 07:22:34 AM
I looked like I was fifteen until years after graduation, so the college hookup was nothing but a fantasy to me. I liked to believe all the sexual bragging was bullsh*t, that no one was really getting laid that much.

I was by no means wealthy, and even I was able to hook up during the apex of grunge, all sex-is-rape at an Ivy

My recently divorced, 43 year old co-worker swears by online dating. According to him, he's gotten more action in the last 6 months than he did in the last 6 years of his marriage.

lake_huron: DubtodaIll: I didn't read the article and I'm not particularly handsome but I did go to college. All I have to say is that college is a non-stop opportunity shop. No where else in life is a man surrounded by more willing and better than average looking women. All that is necessary is the want and you will get something to satisfy your desires. The only thing that slows you down are your youthful ideals.

What percentage of the girls were better than average looking?

At my college it was only 50%.


Imagine the top 5% of your graduating class in high school. Now picture an entire university of the same. Smart schools suck

Do you list any of the following activities under hobbies?

- taxidermy
- Warhammer
- skin collecting
- collecting spores, moulds and fungus
- bronying
- collecting Doritos that look like celebrities

I keed, I keed. Maybe you need to tweak your profile? Maybe you're saying too much, or too little? Do you message women and don't get responses or are you just waiting for someone to message you? I don't online date, but the women I know who do virtually never make the first move and spend most of their time sorting through the messages they do get.

But, like you said, you're probably just in a target poor environment.

Dude, tabletop...? I haven't been that big of a dork in ages.  Coincidentally, I was a virgin at the time.  Not sure if that had to do more with my age or the gaming.

Black male college students probably have just as much if not more sex with white college girls as their white male counterparts, just less often consensually.

I think if you look at the general population that is true. Do you have numbers regarding std rates among college going blacks and college going whites?

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Important traits in college:

1. Attractive
2. Confident
3. Access to a car
4. Access to booze
5. Access to drugs
.
.
.
.
99. White
100. Rich

Seriously, race and wealth don't factor into a girl's mind when she's 20, unless she has SEVERE daddy issues and/or was dirt poor her whole life.  A hot guy or just a guy other girls want is just fine, all the other crap doesn't matter.  Far fewer girls go to college to get their Mrs. degree anymore, most just want to get laid.


You cannot change a person's genetics, but dressing them in great clothes makes them look more attractive than someone who purchases their clothing at the thrift store, and when that fails there is always plastic surgery.  Having access to a great clothes, plastic surgery, great car, booze, and drugs is related to amount  of disposable wealth one has.  So arguably being rich should be number 1.

meyerkev: spacelord321: Does anyone in this thread have any advice on how to get laid in college?

I can't tell you much about "How to get laid in college", but DON'T do these things:

1) Don't live in the dorms on the Engineering campus all 4 years because the walk to all your classes was 5 minutes.  Giant sausage fest.
2) Don't take 2 jobs.  If you do, don't volunteer for the 7 AM weekend shifts out of fear of your boss because this means that you can't go drinking on Fridays/Saturdays.
2b) Don't take 16 credits of upper-level Engineering, run 2 clubs, and have 2 jobs.  You can forget sleeping, much less getting laid.   (The upshot of this is that I made more in 4 months at the internship this got me than my parents did in 12.  The downside is that you're definitely in "Disregard Females, Acquire Currency" mode)
3) In fact, don't major in Engineering.   Giantsausage fest.
4) If you do major in Engineering, don't take 16 credits of upper-level Engineering including 2 classes that you knew for a fact were 40-60 hours/week.
5) If you do this, but one of your group members is this single hot blond party girl software engineer, at least try to hook up.  Seriously, she's pretty much the only girl you're going to see, much less talk to, for the next year or so.
6) Do go to parties with your liberal arts major freshman roommate who was hooked into the frat scene instead of doing actual classwork.

Appearance:
7) Don't trade food for sleep.  I gained 40 pounds Freshman year (lost all 40 that summer), 60 pounds sophomore (gained 5 that summer), 20 pounds junior year (lost 15 pounds that summer), and gained 10 senior semester.  Thank god I'm 6'4" and wide, so I can be 320 and still merely be fat.8) DON'T use caffeine pills for multi-day all-nighters.  3 days (and 7 grams) in, you're a twitchy zombie who can't walk in a straight line, speak words, or feel your left leg.  [sarcasm] Very Attractive. [/sarcasm]  For that matter, if you're doing true multi-day all-nighters, you've farked u ...


Haha. This sounds like my undergrad years in engineering. Man, I missed so many chances with girls. Now all I have is regrets. . . .
