interesting. This is one of them:

Male science nerds likely to be virgins:
"Hmmm, who is most likely to be a virgin, a party-girl, a jock, or a nerd? Think about it. No surprise here; male science nerds between 16 and 25 are the most likely to not have had sex.

At least the study provided some legitimate reasons for this statistic, rather than the typical “nerds are pimply and boring” theories of popular media. The study reasoned that these nerds were the population segment least likely to be in situations where they would meet potential lovers. Apparently, doing homework and going to the library doesn’t help you meet chicks. Hey, at least they’re being productive. Interestingly, female art students were the most sexually active

Obviously further research and an additional grant would be needed to answer this pressing question.

this study about nerds is true...even if not virgin, they are less sexually active.

I know a guy in our faculty who is 30 and still virgin.

A New scientist paper, weird or tragic?

And a lot of black humour or cynicism. Not all will like it, so be careful!

ok,....the guy is actually from our lab....so I tried not to give a very direct address... :(

I lost my virginity when I was 18, but I'm also not very sexually active when I compare myself with my brother and my friends.

Actually very interesting

(The section beginning "Because academics may be unfamiliar with the gentlemen's club subculture . . . " is funny)
