Hookup culture and youth sexuality
A hookup is an ambiguous term. It stands for a sexual encounter that can include different sexual practices ranging from kissing to intercourse. 'Hooking up' has become a prevalent script of intimate coupling on American college campuses, but little is known about whether this sexual culture is prevalent among youth in the direct surroundings of colleges, in the context of urban night life. Jitse Schuurmans carries out a qualitative, comparative study of youth sexuality in the Bay Area in California and in Hong Kong.
