Coed dorms lead to sex and drinking? Thank you, Captain Obvious!

coed dormAccording to a recent study conducted by Captain Obvious (really, BYU lead researcher Brian Willoughby) and printed in the Journal of American College Health, COED DORMS LEAD TO OUTRAGEOUS AMOUNTS OF SEX AND AN OVERABUNDANCE OF DRINKING.

The survey of 500 students took place at two midwestern public universities and a west coast university, and the east coast was represented by a liberal arts college and a religious university.

The study found that students in coed housing were…

  • 2.5 times more likely to binge drink every week (42% of students surveyed vs 18% of single-sex dorms)
  • have more sexual partners
  • more likely to use pornography

Some 90 percent of U.S. college dorms are now coed.
