Hookup Motivations and Methods of Post-Hookup Communication Among College Students
Description: The purpose of this study is to examine how motivations for hooking up cluster to produce different groups of students and how these clusters are related to methods of post-hookup communication. Five distinct clusters of motivations emerged from our two-step cluster analysis: Relationship Desire (20.3%), Mixed Motivations (20.9%), Alcohol (30.2%), College Norm (14.5%), and Pleasure Seeking (30.2%). Significant associations between cluster assignment and sex as well as cluster assignment and communication method are presented.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: identify groups of college students defined by their hookup motives and recognize ways that they communicate with their partners post-hookup.
