Abstract:

“Hooking up” is the new phrase describing the intimate behavior of today’s youth. It is becoming widely used, yet researchers agree that it is difficult to define. This paper investigates exactly what young people are describing when they say they have “hooked up.” Previous research on the topic has been qualitative, discussing the problem of defining the hook-up. Mixed method investigations of hook-ups focus on the number of hook-ups, and participants’ desired outcomes. One psychological quantitative study examines personality styles to analyze hookups that involve intercourse versus those that do not. I seek to expand on this by using quantitative analysis to examine the relationships between different sexual scripts, social network and sexual capital characteristics and the various behaviors involved. I can add to previous research by looking at what students actually do in interactions they characterize as a “hook-up.” Logistic regression analysis allows me to examine the different behaviors themselves and determine which sexual scripts are being used during a hook up. I hypothesize that the relationship between the parties, location, use of alcohol, and campus social capital increase the likelihood of engaging in penetrative sexual behaviors. I also consider gender differences in the different behaviors indicated by respondents.
