back to article Sorority girls gone WILD: '1 to 3' casual sex 'hookups' every MONTH

Saucy young college girls in the States are indulging in "casual, no-strings-attached sexual encounters" at such a rate that one needs a little lie down just after thinking about it, according to bona-fide scientific research done for totally high-minded reasons. A smoking hot press release from the Miriam Hospital in Rhode …

pfft Americans

Too intent on protecting their children and not intent enough on helping them grow up.

All of a sudden the bonds are loosed (ahem) and they go a bit bonkers.

WTF? Re: pfft Americans

I'm sorry, but maybe you're just jealous, or maybe you're not old enough to remember what was considered the 'sexual revolution' back in the 60's.

That's when God invented the birth control pill and womankind rejoiced. :-P

With modern medicine STDs are more under control and the fact that many college coeds are new to the open freedoms that they didn't have under the watchful eyes of their repressed parents. (Note: That if I had a daughter, I'd be the dad who was busy cleaning his guns on the kitchen table as I met her date. "You will have her home by 10:00 pm won't you son? " :-) [Note: Not that would actually stop them from doing something, but that it would make sure she would be home at a reasonable time and I wouldn't be up all night worried about her. I'll let her mother tell her about the 'birds and the bees' ... ]

To your point, yes, today's students have parents who have very protestant and conservative views on sex. Remember two things... 1) Who founded America? (Puritans) 2) The parents of today were the young republicans of the '80s and also had their sexual freedom stymied by the scare of AIDS

If only I were 25 years younger living in today's society!

Paris, because while her sex tape was a tad lame, she still appears to be a role model for today's youth.

Re: pfft Americans

yes! all that casual KISSING! won't someone think of the CHILDREN!!

Seriously though, that is the loosest definition of "hooking up" I"ve ever seen. And if you think there is ANY merit to this "study" then you are more prudish then any american I've ever met.

Um, no. No they aren't.

Re: pfft Americans

@ Oninoshiko - The article states "Hooking up" covered all sexual contact from kissing all the way to sexual intercourse.

OT though, I must have missed out on something, or my Australian university was different. My degree course would generally attract more female students than male (about 60/40, maybe even 65/35), and the university wasn't noticeably conservative, and yet I can't say that everyone were chasing each other around like horny bunnies. Some did, but on the whole we all acted like young adults. What was wrong with us?

Now I think about it, I feel cheated. Where were MY nymphomaniac college girls? Animal House and Revenge of the Nerds made certain promises about what I could expect of university if I play nice and work hard in secondary school. I should be getting at least a partial refund on my fees, but I've paid off my debt already. And now I'm too old to go chasing college girls without looking like a Ron Jeremy-esque creep.

*Sigh*

Tip to the younger generation wondering what to do with their lives: If you want to know which cohort at my university fucked each other like the proverbial bunnies, it was the Physical Education students. There obviously was something about a group of young and fit adults studying the human body that sent a rush of blood to ALL THE EROGENOUS ZONES, because they couldn't keep their hands off each other. The nursing students were nuns compared to the PhysEd crowd. And it was incestuous too, they liked to keep the fluids within the group.

I think it's mostly comforting news.

At a recent debate at a prime UK university, more than half the students voted in favour of the thesis "casual sex is morally wrong". The percentage actually went up after the debate... The prof arguing the "not wrong" position was just horrified.

The only hope is that the bunch of Oxbridge rejects just didn't understand what "morally wrong" means.

Except the research done in this case was "hook up" which apparently included "kissing", which makes it seem all the less remarkable. 3 snogs a months? I imagine most people are aiming for that on an average night out.

"casual sex is morally wrong".

But quite a lot of fun.

People need to understand one simple idea.

Sex is *not* love or a relationship. It's hormonal lust.

Trouble starts when people see them as the same.

Oh for glod's sake!

Does anyone remember why 1968 was really called "the summer of love"?

Or read the Kinsey report?

Or know anything about what happened in WW2? "...in case he does not come back..."

Or read 'Cider with Rosie'?

Yeah, it was a con trick where males took the impression that any female was up for it and if any female refused then they were either 'frigid' or a lesbian. Even rape was considered to be 'just one of those things' where the woman was supposed to lie back and submit and enjoy it.

Re: Oh for glod's sake!

Believe it or not, sex is a natural part of life and dates back EVEN before the 60's.

Ezekiel 23:19 & 23:20

"(19) Yet she increased her whorings, remembering the days of her youth, when she played the whore in the land of Egypt (20)and lusted after her paramours there, whose members were like those of donkeys, and whose emission was like that of stallions."

There are only two reasons I can think of where sex is a bad thing, and that's unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease. So, instead of moral do-gooders trying to spread the message that sex is a bad thing, they should be trying to spread the message of being responsible & cautious about it when they do, especially as we live in the days of freely available contraception everywhere.

Sex was restricted by religion as a control method for the masses. What STD are you going to get from masturbation? Yet it is not allowed by some.

Three reasons - infidelity. Call me an overly moral do-gooder if you want, but anyone - ANYONE - who engages in infidelity makes me sick, the self centred little cunts.

Those religions that ban masturbation seem to be doing it from the 'don't waste it by yourself, get out there and make more of 'us'' standpoint.

Yeah, I want...but I agree with you 100%.

I love my Girlie, I could never look her in the eye if I'd ever done that.

I have done in the past, years ago* - but never, ever again. Chickens know where and when to roost - usually when you least expect it.

Utter gonads.

There were sufficient young ladies who were happily accommodating, without one having to spend hours/days/weeks months on those who were unwilling.

Rape was viewed much as it is viewed today - if not rather worse.

Yes, I was there - I'm a 1950 model.
