Topics: Has the hookup culture replaced relationships in the younger generation?

Most research on hookups has been focused on American college students, but hookups are not limited to college campuses. [8] [9] Adolescents, emerging adults, men and women engage in hookups for a variety of reasons, which may range from instant physical gratification, to fulfillment of emotional needs, to using it as a means of finding a long-term romantic partner. [9] Media reaction to hookup culture has been dismissed as moral panic. [10] [11] [12]

The sexual revolution of the 1960s brought a loosening of sexual morals which allowed for sex to become uncoupled from relationships and non-marital sex to become more socially acceptable. [3] [16] Some scholars, including Garcia and Freitas, have found that dating , while it has not disappeared, has decreased as the frequency of hookups have increased. [11] [17] By the mid-1990s, Freitas found that hookups were an accepted form of interactions among sexually active adults especially those located on college campuses. [1]

According to an opinionated review by Garcia, this is "an unprecedented time in the history of human sexuality." [13] People are marrying and beginning families at ages later than previous generations while becoming sexually mature at an earlier age. As a result, Garcia and other scholars argue that young adults are able to reproduce physiologically but are not psychologically or socially ready to 'settle down' and begin a family. [13]
