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.
From Pregnant Puritans to Dating to Hook-Ups Every generation comes of age in a burst of sexual exuberance that includes casual sex their elders find unsettling.
As previously mentioned, about a third of hook-ups involve intercourse, and the participants are very drunk in around half of those.
Canadian researchers (Herold & Mewhinney, 1993) confirmed this in a study of college students more than 20 years ago: How They Met, 1993 The two studies had different parameters, but it appears not much has changed.
Meanwhile, for college students, spring break remains prime time for hook-ups.
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.
This is understandable for two reasons: Only half of hook-ups involved any genital play, and only one-third included intercourse.
