In Tom Wolfe’s I am Charlotte Simmons, it’s orgy time all the time on college campuses.
“Sex! Sex! It was in the air along with the nitrogen and the oxygen! The whole campus was humid with it! tumid with it! lubricated with it! Tingling with it! in a state of around-the-clock arousal with it!”
Not so much, Newsweek claims.
Whereas 79.3 percent of students in a 2001 Princeton survey had zero or one partner, respondents thought that the figure was only 32.5 percent. And while only 20.5 percent of respondents had two or more partners, the perception was that 67.7 of students did.

Student say they’re too busy for a committed relationship so they “hook up” for a night, complete with “the obligatory blow job,” and then move on.
