Ever wonder how your bedroom fun stacks up with others? Maybe you think you're playing it safe, but you're actually straying from "the norm" (whatever that is). I asked 100 male and female college students across the country about what goes on behind closed doors. From innocent cuddles to risqué roleplay, here's what they had to say.

1. Butt stuff? Not as niche as you might think. 49% of students have tried it!

Don't knock it till you try it?

2. 75% of participants have had drunk sex.

Unsurprising, really.

3. But only 46% have tried it high.

4. A whopping 32% have cheated on their significant others. THIRTY-TWO PERCENT.

WHY IS THIS NUMBER SO HIGH? I started to lose faith in humanity awhile ago as a result of my own experiences, but now I've got numbers to back it, too. Yikes.

5. Only 9% have had a threesome.

Is anyone else curious to know if this is due to a lack of interest or difficulty in finding a third person?

6. 89% have had sex without a condom.

Ummm, watch your back. Here are a few reasons to use condoms (duh!) and here are preferred brands.

7. Of that 89%, 26% claimed that they/their partner were not on birth control.

8. Only 12% report that they use a condom every single time.

One condom = one less panic attack at the end of the month, am I right?

9. And 42% confess to using a condom less than 50% of the time they have sex.

10. 52% of college students have purchased Plan B for themselves or their partners at least once.

14% have purchased it twice, and 15% needed it three or more times! Although, considering the last statistic, this isn't a complete shock. Better safe than sorry?

11. Ever lie about having an orgasm? 65% have, too!

On the bright side, 89% claimed they've orgasmed or finished at least once!

12. 91% of students have performed oral sex, and 92% have received it.

Sharing is caring.

13. Sending texts that are definitely NSFW? So are 81% of college kids!

Here are some things to consider BEFORE you sext.

14. Ever thought about roleplaying or acting out a fantasy? 33% have tried it!

15. One night stands might not be as common as you think! 49% have never had one.

16. 11% have never masturbated.

Not gonna lie, I thought this number was going to be lower.

17. Fingering? Handjobs? 93% have given or received them!

18. 33% have never had sex to music.

Again, don't knock it till you try it. You don't need to have a specific playlist. Just play something you vibe with and see what happens.

19. 78% talk dirty while getting it on!

If you haven't tried it, it might seem weird or feel awkward at first, but there's nothing to be shy about.

20. 3% have never kissed or cuddled in bed.

21. And lastly, 7% reported they have not yet lost their virginity.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.

HBO

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
