It's official, boys: go on spring break!

AP: Study Warns Women About Spring Break
By LINDSEY TANNER, AP Medical Writer Wed Mar 8, 7:11 AM ET


CHICAGO - The American Medical Association is warning girls not to go wild during spring break. All but confirming what goes on in those "Girls Gone Wild" videos, 83 percent of college women and graduates surveyed by the AMA said spring break involves heavier-than-usual drinking, and 74 percent said the break results in increased sexual activity.

The women's answers were based both on firsthand experience and the experiences of friends and acquaintances.

Sizable numbers reported getting sick from drinking, and blacking out and engaging in unprotected sex or sex with more than one partner, activities that increase their risks for sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies.

The AMA is trying to call attention to underage drinking among women because their bodies process alcohol differently and put them at greater risk for health problems, Dr. J. Edward Hill, AMA's president, said Tuesday.

The AMA-commissioned online survey queried a nationwide random sample of 644 college women or graduates ages 17 to 35 last week.

Kathleen Fitzgerald, a 21-year-old junior at Illinois State University, said the AMA's effort to raise awareness is a good idea, but probably won't do much to curb drinking during spring break.

"I think a lot of students wouldn't really pay that much attention to it," Fitzgerald said. "They would just be like, `Duh, that's why we do it.'"

About 30 percent of women surveyed said spring break trips with sun and alcohol are an essential part of college life.

Also, 74 percent said women use spring break drinking as an excuse for "outrageous" behavior that the AMA said could include public nudity and dancing on tables.

Of the 27 percent who said they had attended a college spring break trip:

_More than half said they regretted getting sick from drinking on the trip.

_About 40 percent said they regretted passing out or not remembering what they did.

_13 percent said they had sexual activity with more than one partner.

_10 percent said they regretted engaging in public or group sexual activity.

_More than half were underage when they first drank alcohol on a spring break trip.

While this is obviously good news, at 30 I would have to think that I have become "That creepy old guy" at this point.

Just get a REALLY good razor, shave extra close and keep your hair short. Works for me. I never went to a spring break..was too broke after paying $6000/quarter at MSOE to head down there. I'm sure I missed out on a lot though

Now I'm too busy with real life to spend a week of complete debauchery.

I'm sorry to say I never tried the spring break thing... I think I can still fake it at 26 though...

It's not the fall that hurts... it's the sudden stop at the end...

Is this honestly news to anyone? Looks like the AMA is hurting for things to research. Must have been a summer intern project. Some horny college kid prolly used the survey as a screening method to find easy poon.
