Higher IQ, less Sex Feb. 9th, 2013 @ 11:13 AM Reply

Smart teens don't have sex (or kiss much either)

"Tyler Cowen quotes from a new study testing the relationship between grades and delayed sexual activity.

Last December I passed a paper along to Razib showing that high-school age adolescents with higher IQs and extremely low IQs were less likely to have had first intercourse than those with average to below average intelligence. (i.e. for males with IQs under 70, 63.3% were still virgins, for those with IQs between 70-90 only 50.2% were virgin, 58.6% were virgins with IQs between 90-110, and 70.3% with IQs over 110 were virgins)"

"The team looked at 1000s of representative teens grades 7-12 in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health and The Biosocial Factors in Adolescent Development datasets, both of which include an IQ test, and include detailed sexual experience questions ranging from hand-holding to intercourse. As with the other study there was a curvilinear relationship: students with IQs above 100 and below 70 were significantly less likely to have had intercourse than those in between. Also like the other study, they found teens with IQs ranging from 75 to 90 had the lowest probability of virginity (the authors note this is also the same IQ range where propensity towards crime peaks)."

"Depending on the specific age and gender, an adolescent with an IQ of 100 was 1.5 to 5 times more likely to have had intercourse than a teen with a score of 120 or 130. Each additional point of IQ increased the odds of virginity by 2.7% for males and 1.7% for females. But higher IQ had a similar relationship across the entire range of romantic/sexual interactions, decreasing the odds that teens had ever kissed or even held hands with a member of the opposite sex at each age."

only 65% of MIT graduate students have had sex.
83% of biochem and math majors were virgins!

As if you have a choice. She does have to be "special" to touch your chode.

Actually higher IQ = more sex as can be seen from that chart, those of average / above average intellect have the most sex which is a good thing. Those with too low intellect have less sex and as such pass on their genes less which is a good thing.

However those of very high IQ and intellect do have less sex, but rather than it being unable to get sex, which would be the reason for those of very low intellect, they likely could get sex but instead they put their time and desires into making themselves smarter and discovering more things compared to being satisfied with the level of knowledge average intellect people possess when they prefer to enjoy their bodies instead of enjoying their minds.

i have never had sex with anyone, and i don't need any 'sexual partner'. in fact, i don't even look forward to marriage and children and i prefer being single. (so i can do whatever i want and i don't have to worry about others)
a job with stable income and plenty of spare time is all that i need.

and what about physics majors? the percentage is probably even higher.

Well my high school has a large amount sheltered kids with strict parents who good well in school but are pretty antisocial. I'm in honor and AP classes and a majority of kids in my classes are like this and it's not because they don't want to get laid hahaha. Seriously though nerds are real, they talk about sex with only each other and only talk about school and playing video games in public... A lot of them, in my opinion, aren't actually all that smart. They're pretty obviousness to current world events and social aspects of life.
Also good grades does not mean higher IQ it means you have the will power to do pointless worksheets once a night and not sleep in class...

Yeah, physics has the highest concentration of aspergers syndrome of any science. And since it's math heavy, you can bet your bottom dollar that the math boys and girls are multiplying terms only.

But it's okay, because the angry aspy construction worker laser scientist will tear him a new hole once he's in his 30's and the alpha male's dick is falling off early.

With my IQ of 130+, I guess I won't have much sex.
