Alcohol may play a key role in creating a culture of hook-ups as it lowers individuals' inhibitions and gives them the ‘liquid courage' to approach an-out-of-my-league crush. In fact it's misogynistic culture, broadly, that is the problem, as so well demonstrated by the study.
Fielder and Carey's research also highlights consequences of hooking-up, suggesting that females tend to feel worse about themselves after the hook-up while men experience increases in self-esteem. Perhaps evolutionary theories can explain this phenomenon speculating that hooking-up is advantageous to men because it facilitates rapidly changing partners, due to the absence of an emotional bond, and multiple partners increase the likelihood that men will pass along their genes to the next generation. While I agree that parents need to discuss sexual encounters alone gender lines, there are some things that boys need to hear that we tell our girls: your body is precious, don't just put a part of yourself into another person casually, that there are emotional/psychological consequences; sex changes a relationship, hookups don't provide the opportunities that boys and girls need to practice behaviors that help build long term relationship; when a girl/boy says no, it's no; and, boys can say no; not everyone "hooks up".

Analogous to sexual double standards, dating double standards reflect the greater agency and power traditionally accorded to men in society. undergraduates at a California public university (57 % female, ages 18–25 years-old) from diverse ethnic backgrounds.
But then, I’ve always been determined to not be hypocritical when a woman has the same lack of morals that I do. This question is a popular one because it comes up all the time. As a woman, your job is not to come up with an arbitrary number, like the U. coming up with an arbitrary pull out date for Iraq.
