Sex hookups

Or is it that she does not see it as casual in many instances where he does?

Critics of casual sex consider hook-ups proof that young adults disdain committed relationships. When University of Louisville researchers (Owen & Fincham, 2011) asked 500 hook-up-experienced undergraduates how they felt about commitment, 65% of the women and 45% of the men said they hoped their hook-ups would long-term relationships.

In addition, 51% of the women and 42% of the men said that during hook-ups, they’d discussed the possibility of proceeding to greater commitment.

As previously mentioned, about a third of hook-ups involve intercourse, and the participants are very drunk in around half of those.

Which suggests that, post-hook-up, around 16% of young adults should primarily feel regret, while 84% probably feel differently.

Young adulthood is a time of sexual experimentation, and unfortunately many experiments fail.

As I came of age in the late 1960s and early 1970s, I had a few flings I later regretted. That’s also how young people learn to negotiate relationships.

But according to this study, plenty of young women participate not because they feel exploited, but because they to. Several studies have documented post-hook-up regret: about regret, ignoring other possible reactions.
