Abstract

A sample of 186 college students completed an anonymous online survey on hooking up behavior and its consequences. The survey included 23 questions that assessed demographic characteristics, frequency of sexual behaviors, definitions of hooking up, and expectations of emotional attachment. It was hypothesized that first-year college students would have behaviors and attitudes distinct from senior level college students. Some evidence supporting the hypothesis was discovered, however group differences were not statistically significant due to a small sample of first-year students. In addition, an interesting finding emerged that first-year students in this sample reported more sexual partners than seniors. Results suggest further research is necessary with careful attention to sampling technique. (Editor’s Note: This presentation may contain adult themes, content, or imagery.)
