One thing we hear from collegiettes over and over is that you love HC because we talk about things you’re too embarrassed to talk about even with your friends—stuff like grooming down there, hooking up, birth control, masturbation… and more. So that’s why we conducted HC’s Ultimate College Girl Survey, where we surveyed over 2,500 girls from 677 colleges across the country to get you all the info about all the nitty gritty stuff you’re dying to know, but feel too awkward to bring up even with your BFFs.

(And don’t forget about our Ultimate College Guy Survey Results we released last year!)

This summer, we released a new installment of the results each Thursday for 7 weeks, laying it all out there about dating, sex, STDs, pregnancy, bikini waxes, Brazilian bikini waxes… you get the gist. Enjoy!

The Basics

We surveyed 2,589 girls, age 17-23, from 677 colleges across the country representing all 50 states. 95% of respondents were heterosexual. The classes of 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 were almost equally represented. 78% of girls were Caucasian, 10% were African American, 9% were Asian, 7% were Hispanic, and 7% listed another category (respondents could select more than one race). 66% of respondents were single.
