Guided by theories on conformity the study analyzed similarities and differences within the correlation of conformity and sexual activity. Particular attention was paid to differences in gender, relationship status, and faculty. 227 questionnaires were collected and analyzed. The findings show that students overestimate the sexual activity of their peers and therefore create an illusion of a norm, and that 44.5 % of all the respondents do conform when it comes to sexual activity. Ïndividuals that are not in a relationship and individuals that have not had sex conform the most, but in contrast to previous research this study shows that conformity amongst men is higher than amongst women. The results highlight the need for further research within the subject of sexual activity. (Less)
