.....philosophers have the most sex. Apparently, there has been a survey. And theologians have the least.

She's doing Joint Honors. I daren't ask what that means!

Always good to consider the longterm added value of a degree.
Bertrand if her joint honours are in mathematics and philosophy then she wins on quantity and longterm prospects.

Hahahaha I did Philosophy.

I also had loads of sex.

I think she might be onto something....

I did Theology and Philosophy...the amount of sex depended on if dh was at sea or not.

I did PPE didn't like philosophy but did meet dh and had lots of sexgrin

I did Engineering obviously that meant no shortage of men. They had very little sex, I speculate, I had lots. grin

My DD is a theology graduate. She seems to have many suitors! I don’t think she is going without.

DS is only 14 but he's desperately keen to do Philosophy at uni. Oh dear. grin

I remember that Philosophy students at uni only had about 4 hours of lectures a week. They obviously have more time on their hands.

That's what happens when you study Nihilism, Life is meaningless, might as well go at it like a rabbit.......wink

Theologians however, have so many moral relativities to consider that it is a wonder they dare have it at all. As a historian I have to say sex did not generally work out that well for women in the past , so you would have to conclude it was probably not a "good thing"
