LONDON, May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
New research from the studentbeans.com (http://www.studentbeans.com/) Student Sex Survey 2011 reveals that the students in Wales claim to be the most sexually active in the UK. Students from Glamorgan have had on average 10.9 sexual partners, whilst those from Cardiff have had 10.6.
Wales featured prominently in the survey of students from over sixty universities in the UK, with students from Aberystwyth having on average 9.1 partners. Brighton and Leeds make up the top 5.
Here are the 10 universities claiming the highest average number of sexual partners:
UNIVERSITY AVERAGE NUMBER OF SEXUAL PARTNERS* University of Glamorgan 10.9 University of Wales Institute, Cardiff 10.6 University of Brighton 9.5 Leeds Metropolitan University 9.4 Aberystwyth University 9.1 Manchester Metropolitan University 8.4 University of Dundee 8.2 University of Liverpool 8.1 University of Strathclyde 7.7 University College London 7.6
* We asked 2,284 sexually active students from 61 UK universities
And those universities with the fewest number of partners:
UNIVERSITY AVERAGE NUMBER OF SEXUAL PARTNERS* University of York 3.4 Swansea University 3.3 City University London 3.1
Commenting on the results, a second year student at the University of Glamorgan says, "I am surprised, however whilst living in student accommodation a lot of people tended to have sex. Several friends have used uni as a chance for sexual exploration - living with friends in close proximity, everything is very new, new found independence, and being drunk can all lead to more sex."
Oliver Brann, Editor of studentbeans.com (http://www.studentbeans.com/) added, "Brighton doesn't surprise me, there's something about the sea air in that place. However, the over-representation of the West of Britain is extremely interesting - it can only be a good thing for admissions numbers at Welsh universities!"
