Situational Fantasies - Natural or Porn-Induced?

    My favourite porn sites were always 19/20 year old girls at college parties, where the party just turns into an orgy. Generally American. I used to get the impression that all college parties in the U.S. were like this (realistically I realise I'm probably wrong!)

    But whenever I go to a party now, I start thinking that most people are going to end up hooking up. In reality, most people at most parties never end up hooking up. It seems to be the exception rather than the rule.

    Do people think that this perception is influenced by Porn? Or is it a natural misconception.

    Like, when I'm in a different situation with a similar demographic (like say just in a nightclub), I don't assume that everyone is going to hook up. Possibly cause I never saw any porn with people in nightclubs.

    I think part of the problem with porn is that I've developed the notion that all girls are slutty in their 20s, despite tonnes of evidence to the contrary.

    Studies have demonstrated that college students estimate that 75% of their peers hook up on any given weekend, when in fact fewer than 25% do.

    It's so widespread a phenomenon that there are campus PR campaigns to educate students about the real numbers, so they don't feel pressured to hook up.

    hmmmm, that's interesting.

    Do you have a link?

    I presume this is just among single people btw...

    Actually 25% sounds higher than what I tend to observe (although way lower than my fantasies tell me!)

    The 75/25 is something I saw recently but can't recall where.

    This link has some links:

    I've read about lots of these studies (they are easy to do, because it is just polling college students). The results are consistent: Every student thinks a typical student hooks up more than they do.
