Yet Another Pointless Scientific Study

By Wyatt Earp | December 11, 2009

Some egghead scientists conducted a study that showed – get this – young adults don’t mind casual sex. Yeah, you could have knocked me over with a tube of Astro-Glide.

Casual sex isn’t a bad thing — at least not for young adults, according to a new study. University of Minnesota researchers asked more than 1,300 people age 18 to 24 about their most recent sexual encounters, their self-esteem and their emotional well-being — and found the results startling.

Only about one-fifth said their last encounter was casual, but their overall emotional status was no different than the four-fifths who said they were in a committed relationship.

“We were so surprised,” said Marla Eisenberg, an assistant professor at the university’s School of Public Health. (H/TFOXNews)

Really? Professor Eisenberg was surprised that young people have no problem with casual sex? I hope to hell this broad doesn’t have tenure. Someone send the prof an e-mail notifying her that she just won the Nobel Prize for Idiocy.

    no doubt, funds provided compliments of state and federal taxpayers.

    I keep a folder titled “useless and forgotten studies”, no doubt this one will be part of it.

    How do I sign up for this kind of funding? I can think up all kinds of studies to run. Let’s see, do 12 year olds feel guilty about eating candy? Do dogs like to chase cats?

    I’m sure f a couple million of taxpayer funds, I could answer these questions and possibly get some surprising results.

    In late breaking news…more young men prefer looking at scantily clad young women than at their grandmothers. Pictures at eleven!

    Scary to think someone was denied grant money so this idiot could do this nonsensical study. All she had to do was listen in to casual conversations across any college campus and come up with the same findings. Or she could always pay attention to the out of control STD’s numbers for young adults and come to the same logical conclusion….way too much casual sex going on. Can’t believe this dunderhead gets paid for this garbage.

    Ralph – It will occupy a prominent place in your collection.

    WalterC – And a brand new BMW for your trouble.

    Proof – Really? I am shocked and appalled.

    MeToo – I know this much – I am going to grad school in Minnesota. Go Gophers!

    Hell you don’t even need to listen to conversations Just go to a college bar or get a Facebook account and it is pretty obvious that college kids like to get freaky.

    Minnesota seems to turn out lots of sex related studies. I guess when it is 50 below zero there is not much else to do.

    Was it you, Wyatt, that posted about the study where they couldn’t find a single college age male who hadn’t looked at pr0n?

    You should apply for a grant to open a study to find out if these two things are somehow related…

    Ingineer66 – And you have to keep warm somehow. Actually, Philly is pretty cold this time of year . . .

    Larry – Hey, with four kids, I could certainly use the money.
