Relationship Between Age of College Students and Number of Sexual Partners Per Year

Sponsored by: ELIZABETH HAMMER (eyhammer@loyno.edu)
The purpose of the present research was to determine at what point during college students are the most sexually active so that sexually education and HIV prevention programs could be targeted to that audience. Another purpose is to see if there is a relationship between age and sexual activity. Seventy-five students from Loyola University New Orleans took part in the study. Participants filled out a survey on a voluntary basis answering questions pertaining to their sexual activity per year, alcohol consumption per year, and GPA per year. It was hypothesized that as age increased, number of sexual partners per year would decrease. We also hypothesized that as students get older they will go out and drink less and their GPA’s will increase. Results from the study show that as age increases number of casual partners, and oral sexual partners both decrease while sexual partners in general stay the same. Number of times alcohol is consumed a week decreases and GPA becomes better, which supports our secondary hypothesis. The discussion addresses the theoretical aspects of the numerical results and what they could possible mean.
