England’s research, which is based on interviews, focus groups, and online surveys with students from 18 public and private universities conducted since 2005, revealed that both men and women in relationships of at least six months reached orgasm at much higher rates than during first-time hook-ups (85 percent versus 31 percent for men and 65 percent versus 11 percent for women, respectively).
UCSB recently faced the controversy head on in a meeting with the school’s Associated Student board, debating a bill calling for university administration to moderate and potentially shut down the popular and sometimes-controversial UCSB Hook-ups and UCSB Confessions Facebook Pages. Ultimately, UCSB felt it had no legal power to intervene as a long as the Pages did not officially represent any department or university entity. So we recognize that that’s not something within our ability.” But why have hookup sites taken off among college students in the first place?
“We’re not looking to do anything necessarily official,” Katya Armisted, the associate dean of student life, told the, UCSB’s student-run newspaper. Aren’t school campuses already hotbeds of commitment-free fornication?
