New or Used?

How gross is a used mattress? Is there a way to determine "how used" a mattress is? If I got a used mattress with no visible urine/ejaculate/other(?) stains on it, and covered it with a nice thick mattress pad, would you think less of me?

I'm a college student and I'll be moving from the dorms into an aprtment soon, so I have a lot of other expenses to consider as I move in. I don't want to bring my bed from my parents' house to my new place, because it's not the right size, and besides, it's on its last legs, anyway. There are always some matress and boxspring sets listed on craiglist, so obviously some people are sleeping used mattresses. Sperm only lasts 4-6 hours outside the body, right?
