Exposing the student body
Thank you very much to everyone who took time out of his or her holidays to fill out our annual sex survey. The questions were based on previous columns and ideas for future columns, so the feedback and honesty were greatly appreciated. In total we received 107 responses both online and written.
Some observations comparing last year’s results to this year: the average age of survey respondents remained the same at 24.4 years old. The average age for when respondents lost their virginity is basically the same: 17 years old last year, 16.9 this year.
The average amount of partners went up. Last year our average matched the Canadian national average of 11.3 and this year we now match the American average of 14.3. For all of you that haven’t been tested (and you should), I hope you’re wearing a condom each time. If you need some free ones at the school check out the Encana Wellness Centre.

Best hookup while on vacation:
1. “Ten blowjobs back to back in an Italian nightclub.”
2. “Went to a gay bar with an acquaintance of mine, brought her back home and had sex with her on the couch while my boyfriend was asleep in our room.”
3. “I once gazed longingly at a cute redhead across a café in Paris. It was hot.”
4. “Lakeside mansion party, professional hockey players, hot tub and 30 degree weather.”
5. “Craziest place I’ve done it was outside on the giant ferry that goes between Vancouver and Vancouver Island…almost like Jack and Rose from Titanic!”
Have you ever walked in on someone having sex? If so, describe:
1. “Yes, they were going at it in my room during a house party so I locked the door and joined in.”
2. “No, but I have fallen asleep on the couch and two friends got it on on the couch beside me. I woke up while they were going at it and [then] just fell back asleep.”
3. “Haven’t ever walked in on someone. The closest would have been camping. There were about 4 couples that all had their own tents. My boyfriend and me had a tent beside another couple that had a lot of sex that weekend, which kind of got annoying. Eventually, some people on the trip thought it would be funny to sit outside their tent while they were having sex and wait for them to come out and applaud. I came back from the washroom, found four people sitting outside my tent listening to what was going on inside the tent beside mine. I sat down, and slowly the group became larger. When they came out we applauded. Needless to say, they weren’t that happy, and the friendships haven’t been the same since.”
4. “[At] parties. Just excuse myself and giggle, then sneak out. Once I high-fived a girl.”
5. “Yes it was totally gross. A super, super heavy woman and a man that must have weighed 90 pounds.”
Describe your best sexual experience:
1. “Being woken up in the middle of the night and receiving dreamlike face (cunnilingus) — while already having an intense sex dream.”
2. “Doing it butt-naked on a boat in the middle of an ocean.”
3. “When I was in college, I went home for a weekend to my parents’, and brought my girlfriend with me. In the late autumn evening we went for a walk and spontaneously made love in a secluded part of the trail that winds through a large park. Afterwards we lay in the grass until spirits aroused us again and again under the moonlight, just enough to see our bodies moving together. It felt like time moved in slow motion. That was a good night.”
4. “As long as I get a happy ending I’m a happy camper. Emotional attachment to such situations isn’t typically my strong point.”
5. “Heavily making out and oral sex on an ocean view patio. Cars turning a nearby corner lit us up with their headlights as they passed. We were surely seen. To drunk and way to into each other to care.”
