Twenty-four percent of students have never hooked up, and 28% have hooked up more than 10 times.
The other 48% fall somewhere in the middle, hooking up occasionally or with the same person consistently. It’s a myth."College students definitely monitor each other’s behavior,” Dr. “People always say they don’t care what other people do, but when you actually look at what’s going on, everyone always wants to know what everyone else is doing.” As a result, students who aren’t the biggest fans of the hook-up culture are made to feel like they like it, and therefore continue to participate.
What I've noticed, especially as a college student, is how our society has turned from dating into “meaningless hook-ups.” It seems as if everywhere I turn someone is telling me how great it is to not care about someone and just use them to get what they want.Last year I heard a frat guy ask one of my sorority sisters, “Pencil me into your dance card?” I smiled at the irony, because my grandmother — to whom a “dance card” was a physical object — would faint if she saw the grimy, UV-lit basement of Beta Theta Pi.The hook-up culture, is in fact, more of a subculture.It hasn’t replaced dating, it’s just changed how we think about it. Paula England, professor of sociology at New York University, has surveyed over 14,000 heterosexual students at 19 universities about their sexual behavior.
