Study Finds Catholic Girls "Hook Up" More When Drunk
« on: February 27, 2010, 04:29:10 PM »
Some academics have seen fit to report a study which found that Catholic college girls are more likely to have sex after drinking alcohol. :D Though I guess it's news that they apparently do it more than secular girls:

Study: Catholic Students More Prone to `Hook Up' at College

(RNS) Women at Catholic colleges engage more frequently in sexual "hook ups" than women at secular colleges, a new study shows, and researchers suspect alcohol may be the reason.

The study defines a "hook up" as "a physical encounter between two people who are largely unfamiliar with one another or otherwise briefly acquainted." The encounters typically involve "moderate to heavy alcohol and carry no anticipation of a future relationship."

Researchers at Mississippi State University found that religious female students tend to hook up less, unless they attend Catholic-affiliated institutions. In addition, students who attend church more regularly and report a deeper personal spirituality -- especially women at conservative Protestant schools -- are less likely to hook up.

The study, published last September with little notice in the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, is based on a nationally representative sample of unmarried, undergraduate women who are currently enrolled at four-year institutions.

Just like in "Catholic School Girls Rule"!

When I went to catholic school, girls with two parents at home, competitive homework and sports, many clubs to join, getting drunk meant having half a beer with a GF. :D It seemed like since they were already on the road of "temptations", why not end it with a bang!
2nd of all, if all you believe in is peer-reviewed papers, you won't go very far in life...

... So, is this supposed to be a bad thing? 


It sounds good, but I am expecting someone to say "this is horrible".
Survey results coming soon!

It is horrible.  So very horrible on many levels.  First, I'm married.  Second, I'm outside of college age.  Third, there's no Catholic college nearby.  Horrible, just horrible.

I'm in an open relationship, I'm going to university, and there are several Catholic campuses nearby.  So, yeah.   ;D
