The term "hooking up," in reference to the more general practice of casual sex, differs from hook up culture.
The term's definition can vary depending on the person or on the age group.
It can range from acts that involve kissing, oral sex, or intercourse.
Another study shows that once a person has sex for their first time, it becomes less of an issue or big deal to future relationships or hook ups.
During this study, it was shown that girls in high school do not care as much as boys do on having sex in a relationship.
Hooking up leads to instant gratification for sex, pleasure, a feeling of being loved, an emotional feeling of being adhered to, the thought of the potential of the hook up developing into something less casual, and many more reasons.
