There’s a lot of talk about college students having lots of hookup sex around campus. What’s hookup sex? Well, it’s any sexual behavior between partners who are not committed to each other or in a relationship together.
However, a new study by researchers with The Miriam Hospital’s Centers for Behavioral and Preventive Medicine shows that college students are not having hookup sex as often as once thought. In fact, it shows that romantic sex with a partner is twice a common as hookup sex for first year college women. We just hope they are using safer sex practices and that the sex is consensual.
So, if you’re a current or past college student, we want to know what you think. Does this study fit with your college experience?
