    Okay, this was not just my idea! This was a collaborative effort with 3 SDNers, only I was forced to be the one to make the poll. We were interested if there was a correlation between professional goals and remaining a virgin until later in adulthood. Oh, and it's completely anonymous, so be honest. This poll is for a limited time only, so post before it gets loungified.

    P.S. Normally I hate polls, but I just couldn't help myself.

    I highly doubt you'll find such a correlation. Both seem to be mutually exclusive. Besides, I'm sure there are plenty of people here who lost their virginity long before they ever even considered their future career plans.

    By the way, I love your sig. :laugh:

    This statement was just a way for the poll to seem like it had a purpose. Really, we were just curious what percentage of SDNers were and were not.

    There is a strong correlation between higher education and having less sex...People who are more educated have less sex than those who are less educated.

    My personal goal however for my medical education, is to be a statistical outlier. The more sex the better.

    As is evident from the article, such an association is plagued with confounders.

    I am aware of that. What I'm saying is that there is no point to conducting such polls whatsoever.

    Of course, a lot of threads on SDN have no point at all either.

    Ha! I think the only thing that would be more nerdy would be a poll on procrastination.

    Oh blah blah blah, it's all in good fun. Plus I've seen some God-awful polls on here, and I definitely don't think this one's the worst. But to each his own.

    don't you have less sex after you are married? I mean, isn't that one reason why fundamentalists should support same-sex marriage.. reduces the amount of sinful sodomy going on.

    :( Don't I know it. Sucks being a nerd. You know, my mom tells me back in the old country (China) in the old days, the "nerdiest" (read: smartest and most hardworking) kid in class was always the most popular one getting all the action. How circumstances have changed, to my detriment.

    i'm a virgin. i wish i had a gf, but i don't. losing virginity is not as important as having a gf, if i had one, then it would be up to her when we lose it. i hope that if i dont meet any girls now, i'll meet some once i become a dr.

    I wouldn't worry too much. Your perspective is most likely that of someone surrounded by haughty sorority girls who want to marry Ashton Kutcher. Don't worry, when you get into the real world you will find that many girls are attracted to intelligent men. At school I am a dork, at my other job where I am the only one going to a real college, I am considered quite the ladies man, and they even brag to guests about what school I go to when I'm around :thumbup:

    lololol, of course it's not hard to impress people if you're the only one in their circle going to a real college... but if you want to impress girls that are of the same social status as you, then you also need to have a personality, which i probably dont have.

    I bet the correlation is more between having a gf/bf than with virginity. It's easy to have random one night stands and booty calls. But having a relationship takes time and energy.

    most people with super gpas probably have study together relationships, no time for sex.

    to the virgins out there-
    i would reconsider going to med school. no way you will be able to handle the stress without busting loads here and there. i would consider a lower stress job, like selling condoms.

    screw condoms.. there is apparently no market for those around here. How about becoming pimps? Like specialty niche pimps that marketed the "deflowering" services of certain professionals.

    I was wondering about that 30% virgin dealy. Is the first boobie they'll get going to be from learning how to use the stethoscope on the 65 year old actress they hire? Or what about when they put her in stirrups and whip out the speculum?
    I don't even want to know how they'll deal with the prostate exam....

    male.. I think it is harder for guys (straight ones at least) to "get some." Women on the other hand just have to take a shower and make sure there isn't a big piece of food in their teeth, and they are guaranteed to get laid. Actually, even with the food in their teeth, they stand a decent shot as long as they don't open their mouth to show off the food too much.
