The hookup culture starts with adolescents. As per some research, nearly two-thirds of teenagers have reported having uncommitted sex. Out of these, nearly a quarter reported losing their virginity to either someone they met for the first time or to a friend with whom they are not in a dating relationship. These are staggering figures.

There are some gender differences and similarities. All this is slightly more common among boys than girls. Boys in general are more likely than girls to have multiple hookup partner simultaneously. Boys are also more likely hookup with someone they are not dating. Both boys and girls are much more likely to hook up with an ex or just a casual friend. Out of these, about two-thirds are likely to hookup again with the same person.

Approximately half of all teenage hookups are likely to be one time affair. It’s not surprising that this is same for both boys and girls. About a quarter of those who has a sexual relationship with a dating partner are likely to hook up with someone they are not dating. These numbers speak for themselves.

The biggest concern that experts show is the disconnect between the intimate sexual activity and emotional or moral connection in teenagers. This can be particularly troubling because this disconnect will make these teenagers face problem in forming real long term relationships later in their life. These teenagers are in fact facing sexual crisis which affect their future relationships. They are basically confused about sex and what should be considered as normal sexual behavior.

In simple words, these teenagers who are having multiple partners and practicing casual sex are indeed indulging in adult activities without the maturity or understanding of the role of intimacy in relationships. Majority of teenagers wants their hookup partner to also become their friend as well as a dating partner. What they don’t understand is that these are very different types of relationships but they end up mixing them all up. They hence don’t even understand the difference between just a friend and someone you sleep with.

This is resulting in a very messed up culture in today’s teenagers. The bad news is that there is no way to stop this from spreading further. Parents and guidance counsellor can only do so much. The ultimate responsibility lies with the teenagers themselves and they behave in every manner but responsible.

All this of course becomes very messy when there are emotions involved as someone always ends up being hurt. These teenagers will grow up with a mindset where hookup is the new way of having relationships. This may one day redefine even the basic definition of a relationship and everything associated with it. We are going through a big change that we still don’t realize.

The hookup culture is slowly and steadily changing how future generations will form relationships. There is an overall shift towards more casual relationships. The values that once existed are getting diluted. Today’s teenagers or tomorrow’s adults are going to approach relationships in whole different manner.
