A new book, "Hooking Up: Sex, Dating, and Relationships on Campus" by Sociologist Kathleen A. Bogle, explores college relationships in the context of a new "hookup culture".

In an interview with Inside Higher Ed, the author provides details from her book.

"On campus hooking up has replaced dating as the primary means for students to meet and form sexual and romantic relatinoships...The 'date' still exists among college students, but it is couples who are already in an exclusive relationship who do it," Bogle says in the interview.

Bogle even touches on the "walk of shame." This "refers to a college student, usually female, walking home the next morning after a hookup encounter in the same outfit he/she was wearing the evening prior," says the author.
