I remember thinking that becoming a college student would be my express pass into a chick’s pants. The girls were greasing their morals with booze and the guys all knew the tricks to hitting homers and getting her to blow up your phone every night afterwards.

A lot of people get to college thinking that all the girls will be sexually experimental and all the guys will be aggressively foreword. There are people who certainly fill those stereotypes here, but college isn’t nearly the sexual buffet that most people expect it to be, especially not community college.

By definition, college is a place of deeper learning. This is also true for sex certainly, but not consistently toward the amazing extent that we expect from the movies. The girls aren’t looking for opportunities to loosen their legs; the guys aren’t all looking to score. People may come together for a kickback at the end of the week, but the hormone-driven, raging parties a la “American Pie” happen maybe once a semester, at best.

Everyone is just as sexually curious in college as the kids in high school were; but the big change is that people are looking for a mature relationship at the end of the night. The women want to have their men, but also a guy who’ll call back for more than round two. The men definitely think with the wrong head, but they also want to be blown away and not just blown.

People aren’t more willing to sleep around, they’re just more willing to not hate the idea. But, a willingness to give things a try should never be mistaken as a “Get Into Bed Free” card. People are making themselves more valuable here, why not treat them like they are? Don’t try to land a babe, try to entice a lady. The same goes for the girls; if you treat guys like they’re just sex-starved animals, they’ll probably act like it.

College is a place to begin having a healthy respect for sex, not a place to completely shun yourself from the boys or to jump headfirst into a group of girls. That’s just my take as Skyline’s Trojan Man.
