Adult sex hookups in nevada by text
Compared with sober lovers, those who are drunk are substantially less likely to use contraception. Any romantic/sexual coupling can generate feelings of hurt and regret, but a study at Syracuse University suggests that, far from feeling victimized, women who hook up are typically assertive actors.(Not to mention that as intoxication increases, erotic pleasure usually decreases.) Incidentally, alcohol lubricates not just young adult hook-ups but also a great deal of sex among lovers of all ages. Older adults uncomfortable with hook-ups assert that they reflect young men’s fantasies of porn-style, free-for-all sex, while denying young women’s preference for committed relationships. The researchers (Fielder & Carey, 2010) asked 118 women undergraduates why they’d hooked up: in what my generation called one-night stands.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.
Young adulthood is a time of sexual experimentation, and unfortunately many experiments fail.
A study of Northeastern University students found similar results: 78% of students reported hook-ups, but only about a third of encounters included intercourse.
These figures remind me of what I recall from my own casual relationships four decades ago. From the 1970s through the 1990s, young adults interested in casual sex—or meeting long-term mates—often met at parties or singles bars.
Do Hook-Ups Threaten or Preclude Committed Relationships?
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.
