The start of college is an exhilarating time. While the definition of a hookup is vague - ranging in meaning from kissing to sexual intercourse - it seems that the culture of hooking up is embedded in campuses everywhere. Among all undergraduates surveyed in the study, not a single student said that they felt their peers valued saving sex for marriage, and only 7 percent said that their friends valued saving sex for committed, loving relationships. This perception of a casual undergraduate approach to sex appears to be supported by research from the American College Health Association. Students from the same survey also reported having an average of only one sexual partner per year. Lisa Wade, an associate professor of sociology at Occidental College, spent five years researching hookup culture on various college campuses. In doing so, she discovered that most graduating seniors reported having had only one hookup per semester, half of which were with previous hookup partners.
