AMA WarnsGirls About Spring Break

Risky behavior common among young women during spring break, according to an AMA survey. 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.


The AMA said the findings highlight the need for alternative spring break activities. For example, the University of Nebraska, Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., and the University of Wisconsin offer spring break “service” trips.

Gemma Kite, a 21-year-old Lehigh junior, is in Brunswick, Ga., for spring break this week, helping build a house for Habitat for Humanity.

“It’s so much fun. We’re working outside in the sun,” Kite said.

She said many students see spring break as “your chance to go wild and crazy in a different country where no one’s going to know you.” Kite admitted those trips have a certain appeal, and she hopes to take a more party-oriented vacation next year.

According to Leno last night, the AMA also surveyed young men about this issue. 100% of them said the AMA needed to "shut the **** up".

If he is, he wasn't planning on it but just did it on guts and intestinal fortitude. Oh yeah, and a few bucks he got from his wife when she brought home her paycheck...

I'm sitting here with my mp3 player, listening to techno, editing technical documentation, and jazzed up on 3000 sweet tarts and root beer, forgive me.

Re: AMA WarnsGirls About Spring Break

Some things should trigger exceptions in the law that allow you to slap the living **** out of some people when you see them doing stuff like that.

Sort of an extension of the old 'spandex law'.

Why do you all keep looking at that dude when there's a mostly naked chick to his right? Brokeback eyes or what?
