Indeed, women students are too busy—trying to win membership to student clubs, get chosen for research projects, and land good internships and jobs at top companies—to worry about getting into a committed relationship. Most studies find a negative relationship between religiosity and sexual activity—the higher the religiosity, the lower the sexual activity. We suggest specific areas that warrant further research: Causes and consequences of the hook-up culture for males Much of the research on hooking up on college campuses focuses on female students. This paper provides a systematic review of the research literature identifying the culture and examining the very real damage that has been done by abandoning the in loco parentis role that colleges and universities used to play in terms of encouraging healthy social relationships. The standard narrative about hookup culture is that it benefits men at the expense of women.
