Does everyone participate in hookup culture in college?

I'll be going to college in the fall. I have no clue what I'm in for. I will never participate in hookup culture, but I want to know what everyone else will likely be doing.

  • Obviously not everyone participates in anything. I will just tell you that it is very common in college, but it's also easy to avoid. You will be invited to lots of parties, but you have free will. I would recommend you focus on your studies. Try to remind yourself what your end-goal is. The temptation and peer pressure will always be there, but try your best to stay on the right path.

    • Thanks for the MHO.

  • I used to study.

    I suggest you do the same.

    Men don’t go anywhere, time goes and you’d rather spend it on something that’s going to make your life easier in future.

    I don’t know for others but I and my female friends never participated in “hookup culture”.

    • Awesome opinion. Thanks a ton!!!

    • Good luck ❤️

  • Yes and no. It depends on the college, usually… Not everyone will participate in hookup culture, but


    No matter where you live, or what type of colleges… There will be colleges that are known to be “party schools” and those are usually the more popular schools that have a lot of students, have fraternities/sororities, or students that like to have fun. Google your college, and ask, “is _____ a party school?” and there should be some results.


    But, no… Not everyone participates in hookup culture. As stated, usually the college that have frats/sororities and party often are more likely to have people involved in hookup culture.


    Smaller colleges, community colleges, or colleges that are “top notch” are less likely, in my experience. If you find the right group, you won’t be involved in it, unless you want to be.

    • Thanks!!

    • You’re very welcome miss. I hope you enjoy the college experience, meet the right people and make good friends. Stay out of trouble, and you’ll enjoy it.

    • Will do! :)

  • plenty do not

  • Participating in hookup culture is actually a very beautiful thing, of course it has its risks but it also helps to develop a sense of what you really want in a sexual and possible romantic sense. A lot of times, when people engage in hookup culture they think it's just for the sex and the urges, but in actuality it helps to build that mind map of what kind of person you feel comfortable enough with to actually have sex and also try out new stuff. It also helps to encourage better sex lives as people try out new stuff and find out what helps their sex life, many people find one thing and stick to it which causes a lot of problems but this could help you find many things you can enjoy as well as the knowledge of it which is always useful in the end.
    Hookup culture can help in developing a proper sense of what you want and need and differentiate between the two. But then again, its not always for everyone

    • As I already stated in my question, I will not participate in it. But this has told me that many people are. I don't think it is healthy, and risks outweigh the "benefits", but I don't think it is healthy to share your body with people who mean nothing to you. Value yourself. You are a prize, not everyone deserves it.

  • Losers will see you as a loser. No mandatory participation to "hook-up culture", still.

    • I like this. Thanks!!

  • You did go to school right? It's pretty much the same just now your older and bit more free.
    Hook ups happen in school and collage and just everywhere really. Parties everywhere too. Just if you stay away from those people you will never see it much anyway for yourself.

    • Always been homeschooled. But I've been out and know what's going on. Just wanted to know what to expect. Very helpful thank you!

    • I see oh that will be a big change then! You'll be okay :)

    • Thank you!

  • I have friends in college and they tell me no, definitely not everyone does.

  • I think it is common, and in college, night-class, I hooked up with a girl the first night of class. I see it a lot, and know girls that did/do it, but probably more dangerous now because of STD's, COVID et cetera.

  • Some people actually study or so I'm told

  • Hookup culture in college is incredible. You get to explore and have a ton of fun with other people who also are learning about sexuality… it’s the only time you’ll be in that kind of environment take advantage.

    Once you’re an adult you’ve had a bunch of experiences, know what you like and don’t. So do other adults. The fun of exploring goes away since that all happens in college.

    My advice embrace it all, experience as much as possible, have fun learning about yourself. Push limits. Stay safe, use protection, make mistakes just make sure they aren’t life changing.

    When those years are over you can be anyone you want and never look back, but you will have experienced life! Boring and responsible will come with age. Why force it on yourself before you have too?

    • I wholeheartedly disagree with you. But thank you for taking the time to share. I will not set myself up for failure in doing anything such as what you've mentioned. As I stated in my original question, I will not participate in it, but I did want to know what others are doing. You have answered that.

    • I value my body. My mind and heart must be won before anyone ever gets to touch it.

    • Do you! It’s going to be all around you. My advice is still push the limits and have fun exploring your urges. It’s a very short period of time, makes no sense to restrict yourself. Same with life, it’s about experiences and actually living not being proper.
