  11. How much of hookup culture is due to fear of emotional risk?

  14. Anyone committed to the quest to find  “meaningful” sex must first solve the riddle of finding what might have”meaning” in any part of life. -because – in an icecold void, even the most energertic sexual friction falls short of producing any meaningful warmth, much less spirirtual  transcendence.
  16. If our typical modern nihilistic college student cannot find “meaning: in random hooked-up  sexual encounters then he or she should give up entirely in the quest for meaningfulness in life in general. The train has left the station and will never come back. They should try to get comfortable with total psychological empiness. That is the best they can hope for, after all. Given their orientation…
  18. Hint: The comprehensive nihilism you have inbibed since kindergarten makes sex meaningless, per se. If you feel like affirming a different view mayybe you are just over doverdosing on dopamine and serotonin and oxytocin. but keep in mind that there are available  pharmicutical reversing agents for all these love-spasm hormones.

  21. Someone isn’t telling the truth here-not when 89% of college students PROFESS to hate the hookup scene, yet participate in it anyway.  Actions speak louder than words; they always have, and they always will…

  24. “Clearly, the number of men actually able to pull this off is even smaller than 20%, so I’m surprised it was such a strong theme among the women.”
  26. eighty to ninety percent of the women are hooking up with ten to twenty percent of the men. The fact that ninety percent of the men are unable to pull this off is invisible to them, because ninety percent of the men are invisible to them.

  29. I’m not so quick to blame feminism for this, although it certainly has its place in the sex-pozzing of campus culture (there is zero slut shaming on a major college campus, for one – interesting how slut mores weren’t part of the survey, at least you didn’t quote it) but I think the tide of divorce is what destroyed formal coupling culture. Kids don’t have good role models, they don’t learn how to relate to the opposite gender in an attractive positive way, and they become relationship-avoidant. It becomes an entrenched cultural phenomenon and it never goes back. Now we have kids coming of age whose parents were children of divorce and the cycle continues.
