Bogle argues that college life itself promotes casual relationships among students on campus. The journalist Tom Wolfe, a keen observer of American culture, offered this musing on junior high, high school, and college students: Only yesterday boys and girls spoke of embracing and kissing (necking) as getting to first base. I would argue that today there is something fundamentally different about how young men and women become sexually intimate and form relationships with one another.

'Hooking Up uses interviews with both women and men to understand why dating has declined in favor of a new script for sexual relationships on college campuses....

Bogle presents a balanced analysis that explores the full range of hooking-up experiences.' - Joel Best, author of Flavor of the Month: Why Smart People Fall for Fads It happens every weekend: In a haze of hormones and alcohol, groups of male and female college students meet at a frat party, a bar, or hanging out in a dorm room, and then hook up for an evening of sex first, questions later.

A frequent source of debate here is the question of what percentage of students in college are participating in hookup culture, i.e. Regular readers know that I have made the following tentative statement: Overall, the sexes show very little difference in the number of sexual partners.

This would seem to confirm the hypothesis that a small percentage of promiscuous students are engaging in casual sex with one another, while a much larger group has a few partners during college, and well over a third of students have no sex at all. In other words, there are approximately equal numbers of each sex having most of the casual sex.

Hooking Up is an intimate look at how and why college students get together, what hooking up means to them, and why it has replaced dating on college campuses. Today's boys and girls have never heard ofanything that dainty. But it is too simplistic to characterize the change in moral terms.
