New research from the studentbeans.com (www.studentbeans.com/)

10.9 sexual partners, whilst those from Cardiff have had 10.6.
Wales featured prominently in the survey of students from over sixty
universities in the UK, with students from Aberystwyth having on average 9.1
partners. Brighton and Leeds make up the top 5.

Commenting on the results, a second year student at the University of
Glamorgan says, "I am surprised, however whilst living in student
accommodation a lot of people tended to have sex. Several friends have used
uni as a chance for sexual exploration - living with friends in close
proximity, everything is very new, new found independence, and being drunk
can all lead to more sex."

added, "Brighton doesn't surprise me, there's something about the sea air in
that place. However, the over-representation of the West of Britain is
extremely interesting - it can only be a good thing for admissions numbers at
