PRINCETON, N.J. -- CBN News has reported on the growth of immoral activities on college campuses such as Yale's "Sex Week." It's part of a longtime trend of casual sex on college campuses known as the "hookup culture." But students are growing tired of it and taking a stand for sexual purity.
College professor and author Donna Freitas writes about that "hookup culture," naming three characteristics to describe it.
"Number one, it's anything from kissing to different types of sex," Freitas said. "And then two, it is brief, anything from 10 minutes to a whole night ... and then, three, you are not supposed to get attached."

"There is an understanding with a lot of people in the hookup culture that there is this sort of emptiness to it," Say told CBN News.
That emptiness spills out onto the pages of Princeton University's student newspaper with anonymous posts in a series called "Love and Lust in the Bubble."

Whenever I looked at the star stickers adorning my section of the chart, I would always laugh out loud, remembering the awful, drunken hookup that each star symbolized. There were many nights, though, when I couldn't sleep from cringing at those memories. But I wouldn't take those experiences back. Without them, I would have never realized how much I hate the hookup culture here."
