While I have no problem believing it, just like I have no problem with the idea to begin with. I mean think about it, "dating" insinuates that you're like husband shopping or wife shopping, looking for that 'be with them forever' person. And lots of us just are not in that headspace! We want to make friends, have the physical fun of lots of sex, and a variety of not being tied down to one person especially not permanently! And of course there is nothing inherently or morally wrong with it, since sex is not even a moral issue - though you wouldn't know that by the laws our society has enacted and the [double]standards by which it operates.

I'm so sick of the hype about the college "hookup" culture. The truth is that only a minority of college students participate in that culture - maybe 35-40%. The rest either prefer to find a relationship or simply wish to focus on their studies. But of course the ones that screw around are the ones that draw all the attention and let older people imagine living vicariously through them.

Well, thanks for deciding that for all the rest of us, Your Majesty. I think you'd feel differently if you ever get pregnant. It's one thing to say that having sex with mutiple partners is not immoral, which I agree with, though obviously millions of people disagree, and who are you to dismiss them so casually? It's quite another to suggest that there are no moral or ethical issues associated with sexual activity. Sex can have consequences, and people who have sex have an ethical obligation to be responsible for those consequences.
