Are you smart, no sex for you!!

I havent even read it yet and no this is true.
I wonder if the converse is true.  If you don't have sex, that means you are super smart.

Hmm, you could twist those stats into Orwellian government monitored sexual activity to promote intellect and diminish crime.

But of course.

Because people with high IQ's know they're going to college, where they'll get all the babes.

And when they reach college, they find they're in with a group as smart as them -- and they can't afford to get anybody pregnant, besides there's always graduate school.

So now they're in graduate school, yet they still have ambitions for a career that would be dashed if they had a child now, or even a significant relationship.

I'd think this is more common for women than men, quite frankly.  Smart women know they don't need to 'put out' to support their sense of self-esteem.

Plus, there's nothing like a high IQ for having the ability to tell yourself stories that you believe about great things waiting just around the bend.

I imagine the converse would be more likely.

Actually it is - look at the youth camps in Russia right now.

I hold with the theory that those who are smart generally invest their efforts into other stuff rather than attracting the opposite sex (which takes a lot of work, but not very much intelligence).

The people with way below average IQs - well, they really do suffer.

If you were a little dumber, I'd have sex with you.

"And two new papers suggest that testosterone may depress IQ. One team found that salivary testosterone levels were lower for preadolescent boys with IQs above 130 and below 70. (the same two groups most likely to be virgins in adolescence)"

Interesting.

+1 Colm.

I guess smart people have lots of other interesting things to do. 

And also plank is higher ->  harder to find good partner.

>> The chart for Wellesley displayed below shows that 0% of studio art majors were virgins, but 72% of biology majors were virgins, and 83% of biochem and math majors were virgins!  <<

Wow, I should have hung out with the art majors more.  They look like they know how to have a good time.
:-)

The chart was interesting -- CompSci was near the left end of the scale (but still nowhere near the art majors) with 40% virginity.  Math majors were at the other end of the chart with 83% chance of encountering a virgin.

It's hard to say what this means without more data.

Maybe those art majors die of a drug overdose at age 28, infected with HIV.

And maybe the physicists go on to win the nobel prize and die at age 90 after a long pleasant life, having married a hot actress at age 30, lost their virginity, then had sex every night after that.

physics majors - 99% chance of being a virgin?

Well, of course.  Life doesn't start for a physics major until AFTER Grad School.

I was one of 5 graduating physics majors at my university, so it's got to be at most 80%.
