Abstract

This thesis looks at the contemporary heterosexual hook up culture on college campuses. Hook up culture is a relatively new phenomenon that has replaced dating as a conventions means for heterosexual partners to become sexually intimate. By drawing on semistructured interviews with Wesleyan University students, contemporary sociological research, and feminist moral theory, this thesis critically analyzes college students' relationship practices and devises a sexual ethics grounded in a positive conceptualization of vulnerability.
