With more emerging adults having casual sex, researchers are exploring psychological consequences of such encounters. Garcia, The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction, Indiana University, Bloomington; and Chris Reiber, Sean G. Merriwether, Binghamton University, State University of New York February 2013, Vol 44, No.2 Print version: page 60 "CE Corner" is a quarterly continuing education article offered by the APA Office of CE in Psychology.This is consistent with the view of emerging adulthood (typical college age) as a period of developmental transition (Arnett, 2000), exploring and internalizing sexuality and romantic intimacy, now including hookups (Stinson, 2010).Although much of the current research has been done on college campuses, among younger adolescents, 70 percent of sexually active 12- to 21-year-olds reported having had uncommitted sex within the last year (Grello et al., 2003).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 this article, we review the literature on sexual hookups and consider the research on the psychological consequences of casual sex.This is a transdisciplinary literature review that draws on the evidence and theoretical tensions between evolutionary theoretical models and sociocultural theory.

Influencing this shift in sexuality is popular culture.Hook-up activities may include a wide range of sexual behaviors, such as kissing, oral sex and penetrative intercourse.However, these encounters often transpire without any promise of — or desire for — a more traditional romantic relationship.Upon successful completion of the test (a score of 75 percent or higher), you can print your CE certificate immediately.APA will immediately send you a "Documentation of CE" certificate.
