Kuperberg co-authored the study, which was published earlier this week. Among the other findings:. The study showed that the rate of dating and hooking up were essentially the same: While 62 percent of college students had hooked up, 61 percent had been on dates.

Only a very small of students, a mere 8 percent, had hooked up yet never been on a traditional date or involved in a romantic relationship. Men do want hookups more than women do.

But overwhelmingly, both of them want long-term relationships much more. College dating rituals found that the contributing factors to unprotected sex during a hookup were heavy alcohol intake, marijuana use and knowing your hookup partner well. When students were friends with the person they were hooking up with or had repeated hookups with the same partner, they were less likely to use a condom but also less likely to have been binge drinking. The authors speculate that greater familiarity created a false sense of safety and a greater sense of trust that lead to more unprotected sex.

Hookups were not always just a single night, but rather the beginning of a longer term relationship. Hooking up and finding romance are far from mutually exclusive: The National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia found that 32 percent of marriages began as a hookup.
