This year’s event will focus on what is known as the Hook-up Culture and its effect or lack there of on our self- worth. Upon completion of this program we want all in attendance to leave with the understanding that no matter your view on the topic you should make conscious decisions before engaging in any type of relationship, sexual or otherwise. Remember there are always consequences to your actions and it is up to you use your intellect as adult to avoid those. Though a situation maybe fun in that moment the after effects emotional or otherwise can leave one with much to be desired. Don't just claim to be an adult act like one. And dont be afraid to ask whomever you are engaging with questions. Rules of Engagement

Be Respectful & Courteous of all opinions and point of views Keep comments brief (i.e 30-90 seconds) and intelligent
Listen to understand

Sexual relations not involving a love relationship, esp. brief encounters or an encounter on one occasion A distinction is usually made between non-intimate and intimate relationships, which involve a higher degree of physical and emotional intimacy between two people. Physical intimacy is characterized by loving gestures and sexual activity, whereas emotional intimacy results from sharing thoughts, experiences, and goals. (Source: American Psychological Association) Marriage Statistics

We've been hearing for years that fewer and fewer people are tying the knot, and a new study reveals just how much the marriage rate has declined in the last century. A new report released Thursday by Bowling Green State University's National Center for Marriage and Family Research found that the U.S. marriage rate is 31.1, or 31 marriages per 1,000 unmarried women. That means for every 1,000 unmarried women in the U.S., 31 of those previously single women tied the knot in the last year. For comparison, in 1920, the national marriage rate was 92.3. The rate of satisfaction in marriage is higher for husbands and wives when both regularly maintain religious attendance and feel that God is the center of their marriage. (Source: The State of Our Unions 2011, 31, 33) Couple Statistics

During the early twentieth century, dating evolved out of a courtship ritual where young women entertained male callers under the watch of a chaperone. By the 1960s and 1970s, “hooking up” increasingly replaced dating, mainly because the age at which people marry for the first time had begun creeping up. (Source: facts.randomhistory.com) What is Hooking Up?

“hooking up” could mean anything from kissing to intercourse. Despite the ambiguity of the term "hookup," 84 percent of students reported that they had discussed theirs with friends in the previous four months. Over 50 percent reported at least one and a third reported at least two hookups during the school year, indicating that these liaisons -- however the students defined them -- were common. During what time did hooking up become more common?

Hookups began to become more frequent in the 1920s, with the upsurge of automobiles and novel entertainment, such as movie theaters. Instead of courting at home under a parent's watchful eye, young adults left the home and were able to explore their sexuality more freely. What feelings are most associated with hooking up?

557 male and female students who responded to a question asking how they felt the morning after a hookup, 41% of those expressed sadness, regret and ambivalence. So, 59% feels otherwise. What generation is known as the “Hook-up generation”?

Can it be distracting to your priorities as student?
A number of studies have looked at regret with respect to hookups and have documented the negative feelings men and women may feel after casual sex. In a large Web-based study of 1,468 undergraduate students, participants reported a variety of consequences: 27.1 percent felt embarrassed, 24.7 percent reported emotional difficulties, 20.8 percent experienced loss of respect, and 10 percent reported difficulties with a steady partner (Lewis et al., 2011). In another recent study conducted on a sample of 200 undergraduate students in Canada, 78 percent of women and 72 percent of men who had uncommitted sex (including vaginal, anal, and/or oral sex) reported a history of experiencing regret following such an encounter. (Source Can it change your perception of yourself?

In a study of 832 college students, 26 percent of women and 50 percent of men reported feeling positive after a hookup, and 49 percent of women and 26 percent of men reported a negative reaction (the remainders for each sex had a mix of both positive and negative reactions; Owen et al., 2010).
