This is a study that simply cries out to be repeated at other schools across the country. A couple of statistics stand out:
1) The least shocking statistic is that 0% of studio art majors are virgins. The only major that might rival art for this distinction is drama. Not sure what it says about me that I always took lots of drama classes in college.
2) The second least shocking statistic is that the chastest majors lie in mathematics and the physical sciences. My guess is that it’s not that these women are less attractive, but rather are too busy to waste their time on trying to find a worthy consort.
3) The biggest upset is that Computer Science majors rank high on the sex continuum, beating out other majors that I was sure would score higher (English, Psychology).
It might be that this is simply an artifact of the particular school. There is actually a bus that runs between Wellesley and MIT on weekend nights that is known locally as the “fornication bus” (you can guess for yourself what vulgar “F” term is generally used in that phrase). If not, however, it certainly suggests that the men of the world should take a closer look at the CS departments when searching for dates.
